Arduino Uno and HDC1080 humidity and temperature sensor

The HDC1080 is a digital humidity sensor with integrated temperature sensor that provides excellent measurement accuracy at very low power. The HDC1080 operates over a wide supply range, and is a low cost, low power alternative to competitive solutions in a wide range of common applications. The humidity and temperature sensors are factory calibrated.

Relative Humidity Accuracy ±2% (typical)
Temperature Accuracy ±0.2°C (typical)
Excellent Stability at High Humidity
14 Bit Measurement Resolution
100 nA Sleep Mode Current

You will need to download the following library and install it from , this is the default example



#include <Wire.h>
#include "ClosedCube_HDC1080.h"
ClosedCube_HDC1080 hdc1080;
void setup()
Serial.println("ClosedCube HDC1080 Arduino Test");
// Default settings:
// - Heater off
// - 14 bit Temperature and Humidity Measurement Resolutions
Serial.print("Manufacturer ID=0x");
Serial.println(hdc1080.readManufacturerId(), HEX); // 0x5449 ID of Texas Instruments
Serial.print("Device ID=0x");
Serial.println(hdc1080.readDeviceId(), HEX); // 0x1050 ID of the device
void loop()
Serial.print("C, RH=");
void printSerialNumber() {
Serial.print("Device Serial Number=");
HDC1080_SerialNumber sernum = hdc1080.readSerialNumber();
char format[12];
sprintf(format, "%02X-%04X-%04X", sernum.serialFirst, sernum.serialMid, sernum.serialLast);





Open the serial monitor window and you should expect to see something like this

Arduino Uno and BMP280 sensor example

BMP280 is an absolute barometric pressure sensor especially designed for mobile applications. The sensor module is housed in an extremely compact package. Its small dimensions and its low power consumption allow for the implementation in battery powered devices such as mobile phones, GPS modules or watches.

As its predecessor BMP180, BMP280 is based on Bosch’s proven Piezo-resistive pressure sensor technology featuring high accuracy and linearity as well as long term stability and high EMC robustness. Numerous device operation options offer highest flexibility to optimize the device regarding power consumption, resolution and filter performance. A tested set of default settings for example use case is provided to the developer in order to make design-in as easy as possible.


– Enhancement of GPS navigation (e.g. time-tofirst-fix improvement, dead-reckoning, slope detection)

– Indoor navigation (floor detection, elevator detection)

– Outdoor navigation, leisure and sports applications

– Weather forecast

– Health care applications (e.g. spirometry)

– Vertical velocity indication (e.g. rise/sink speed)
