STM32 Nucleo and MS5611 barometric pressure sensor example

In this example we connect an MS5611 to an STM32 Nucleo – in this case it was a Nucleo-F446RE

This barometric pressure sensor is optimized for altimeters and variometers with an altitude resolution of 10 cm. The sensor module includes a high linearity pressure sensor and an ultra-low power 24 bit ΔΣ ADC with internal factory calibrated coefficients. It provides a precise digital 24 Bit pressure and temperature value and different operation modes that allow the user to optimize for conversion speed and current consumption. A high resolution temperature output allows the implementation of an altimeter/thermometer function without any additional sensor.




  • High resolution module, 10 cm
  • Fast conversion down to 1 ms
  • Low power, 1 µA (standby < 0.15 µA)
  • QFN package 5.0 x 3.0 x 1.0 mm3
  • Supply voltage 1.8 to 3.6 V
  • Integrated digital pressure sensor (24 bit ΔΣ ADC)
  • Operating range: 10 to 1200 mbar, -40 to +85 °C
  • I2C and SPI interface up to 20 MHz
  • No external components (Internal oscillator)
  • Excellent long term stability

Import this into the MBEd compiler –

I slightly modified to loop the output, thats about it

printf(“Temperature = %.2f degC \r\n”, ms5611.getTemperature());

Use a program like teraterm and you should see something like this
