July 20, 2017

Our partners at Bosch Sensortec this week announced the wider distribution of the BME680. This is following the successful introduction of this technology to consumers through the i-BLADES Smartcase.  

Bosch Sensortec and i-BLADES have worked in partnership to provide a unique mobile solution to consumers, enabling them to sample air quality wherever they are.  Bosch has used its proven expertise in heater technology derived from Bosch automotive products to develop the BME680.

Now following this success it will move onto power the air quality and environmental intelligence behind other devices. 

You can find out more details around the BME680 in the release here.

 

 

The BME680 Sensor chip

Bosch Sensortec is one of the world's leading sensor makers who produce high quality and accurate sensors.  The BME680 has taken several years of development and rigorous field testing by Bosch Sensortec prior to its introduction to consumers in partnership with i-BLADES.  It is a 4-in-1 Environmental sensor that provides highly accurate measurement of air quality, barometric pressure, relative humidity and ambient air temperature.  i-BLADES has partnered with Bosch Sensortec to embed this type of technology for the first time in its range of phone cases.

The accuracy of the BME680

The gas sensor can detect Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and other gases such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen, in the part per billion (ppb) range. The BME680’s pressure measurement accuracy of ±12 Pa provides precise altitude information of ±1 m. Additionally, the BME680 offers best-in-class response time for measurement of relative humidity and ambient temperature.

Proven in the i-BLADES Smartcase

 Bosch's announcement follows on from its successful introduction with the i-BLADES Smartcase.  Where it can continually monitor air quality in real time.  This is then displayed to cosnumers through an easy to use color-dial that shows the air quality as an easy to understand index from 0-500.
