Bosch BME680 Element

The BME680 element is used to measure environmental conditions, including gas, barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity. This element is for using the Bosch BME680 environmental sensor, which is featured on the RSL10 Sensor Development Kit and mangOH Yellow.

The BME680 is a sensor element that can be imported into the Element Toolbox through the Add Element Add Element button located in the toolbox from the Embedded tab. RSL10-SENSE-GEVK and mangOH Yellow projects have this element imported by default.


The following properties can be changed for the BME680 element:
