Parallax Altimeter Module MS5607


The Altimeter Module is a high resolution (20 cm) altimeter sensor with SPI and I²C bus interface.

The module includes a high linearity barometric pressure sensor and a high resolution temperature output, allowing implementation of an altimeter/thermometer without any additional sensors. Different operation modes allow the user to optimize for conversion speed or current consumption. The module is designed for use with a large variety of microcontrollers with different voltage requirements.


  • High resolution 20cm altitude
  • Thermometer of -40 to +85 °C with <.01 °C resolution
  • Pressure range of 10 - 1200 mbar
  • Supports I²C and SPI communications
  • 24-bit pressure and temperature values

    Application Ideas:

  • Mobile altimeter / barometer systems
  • Rate of climb and descent Indicator (RCDI)
  • Height sensing
  • Navigation
  • Weather station
  • Altitude hold for UAVs
  • IMU builds

    Key Specification:

  • Power Requirements: 3.3 to 6.5 VDC
  • Communication Interface: I²C (up to 400 kHz) or SPI (20 MHz)
  • Operating temperature: -40 to +185 °F (-40 to +85 °C)
  • Dimensions: 0.85 X 0.80 in (2.16 X 2.03 cm)
