I bought a BMP280 and it looks like this:

enter image description here

How can I connect BMP280 to Arduino Uno? I tried the following examples on the web, but they didn't work. I used this library, connecting the PINS in this way:

VCC  ->  3.3V
GND  ->  GND
SCL  -> 13
SDA  -> 12
SDO  -> 11

But the sensor did not initialize.

The BMP280 is a sensor that can be used at 3.3V, but not at 5V. The datasheet tells that the interface pins may be maximum 3.6V (when the sensor is powered with 3.3V). That means you may not connect the sensor to an Arduino Uno. Not to the SPI interface and not to the I2C interface. The sensor might already be damaged. This is not a joke. When sensor is still working, the results might be noisy or the values could drift too much.

The easiest solution is a level shifter module for I2C. Another option is to add two extra pullup resistors of 10k from SDA to 3.3V and from SCL to 3.3V and connect the SDA and SCL directly to the Arduino Uno. It will not be reliable, but with some luck it will work. You need some luck, because it will not be okay according to the datasheet of the ATmega328P.

You could also buy a 3.3V Arduino board (Arduino Due, Arduino Zero, Arduino M0, and so on), or buy a BMP280 module that is compatible with 3.3V and 5V signals: Adafruit BMP280

  • Thanks for the answer, but I am wiring it at 3.3 V so where is the problem? – G M Mar 2 '17 at 16:24

    I was talking about the signals of the SPI bus and I2C bus. Even the I2C bus is not fully compatible with a 3.3V sensor. The internal pullup resistors are enabled and the Arduino Uno requires 3.5V for a reliable high level at SDA and SCL according to the datasheet of the ATmega328P. The internal 50k pullup resistors together with the 10k pullup resistors on the module make a voltage at SDA and SCL of 3.58V. That is enough for a high level of the ATmega328P and it won't damage the sensor. But that is pure luck. It changes if you add something to the I2C bus. – Jot Mar 3 '17 at 7:17

Eventually as reported here, it worked using this pinout:

VCC --> 3.3V
GND --> GND
SCK --> A5
SDI --> A4

Actually, BMP280 doesn't monitor relative humidity so you can delete the part related to the humidity control.
