SparkFun Qwiic MicroPressure Sensor

The SparkFun Qwiic MicroPressure Sensor is a miniature breakout equipped with Honeywell's 25psi piezoresistive silicon pressure sensor. This MicroPressure Sensor offers a calibrated and compensated pressure sensing range of 60mbar to 2.5bar, easy to read 24 bit digital I2C output, and can be calibrated and compensated over a specific temperature range for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects, and non-linearity using an on-board Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). With its ultra-low power consumption and Qwiic ports, you've got yourself a power packed little sensor!

Each Qwiic MicroPressure Sensor has a calibrated pressure sensing range from 1-25psi and a power consumption rate as low as 0.01mW typ. average power, 1Hz measurement frequency for ultimate portability. Used in multiple medical (blood pressure monitoring, negative pressure wound therapy), industrial (air braking systems, gas and water meters), and consumer uses (coffee machines, humidifiers, air beds, washing machines, dishwashers), the SparkFun Qwiic MicroPressure Sensor is a great addition to the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem!


The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.

SparkFun Qwiic MicroPressure Hookup Guide

July 23, 2020

Get started using your Qwiic MicroPressure breakout board with this hookup guide.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

  • It doesn't look like i can't formally review this, as i had "Purchasing" buy it at work instead of buying it myself from home.

    5 stars! Easy to use, very steady output - not noisy like other sensors i have used. Nice! We are tracking vacuum around 0.4 psia and it seems reliable so far.

    • Hi,

      I am doing a project with vacuum to create around 0 psia. But could not reach less than 3 psia. Which vacuum pump are you using?

      Thank you

  • You should say which exact sensor is on the BoB. From the data sheet there are 31x9x3 possibilities. I'm guessing it's the MPRLS0025PA 0000 1 x (don't know the transfer function) based on the text. But, I hate guessing when it comes to electronics. Please be explicit.

    • Sorry about that! The documents section has been updated to include the IC part number used on the breakout board by another representative.
