Explorer pHAT for Raspberry Pi Zero - Would work with the sensor: BMP180


#1

Hi Guys,

I am new to electronics so I have a question for a future project I want to do.
Here what I intend to do:

  • Use a raspberry pi zero to build my own weather station
  • I wish to buy pHat explorer for pi zero and connect the sensor BMP180 to it.

My question it is:

  • Would pHat explorer work with the BMP180 sensor or I need a different bread board?

Thank you,
Alex

The BMP180 is an i2c-ready sensor, so you don’t need an Explorer pHAT to interface with it, you can communicate with it directly from the Pi, using Python.

See the Adafruit tutorial here:

Thx a lot for help.

All the best
