Library for the DPS310 Precision Barometric Pressure Sensor


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-dps310

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-dps310

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-dps310

Installing to a connected CircuitPython Device

Some devices, eg. the QT-PY, are very limited in memory. The DPS310 library contains two variants - basic and advanced - which give different levels of functionality.

Installing the DPS310 library could have the following outcomes:

  • It installs successfully and your code runs successfully. Woo-hoo! Continue with your amazing project.

  • It installs successfully and your code fails to run with a memory allocation error. Try one of the following:

    • If your is large, especially if it has lots of comments, you can shrink it into a .mpy file instead. See the Adafruit Learn Guide on shrinking your code.

    • Only use the basic DPS310 implementation, and remove the following file: <CIRCUITPY>/lib/adafruit_dps310/advanced.mpy where <CIRCUITPY> is the mounted location of your device. Make sure that your code only uses the basic implementation.

Usage Example

import time
import board
from adafruit_dps310.basic import DPS310

i2c = board.I2C()   # uses board.SCL and board.SDA

dps310 = DPS310(i2c)

while True:
    print("Temperature = %.2f *C"%dps310.temperature)
    print("Pressure = %.2f hPa"%dps310.pressure)

Known Issues

Library extensive features might not be compatible with memory limited boards. For these kind of boards you need to use the adafruit_dps310/basic.mpy, the file needs to be in the mpy format in order to fit in memory. For boards with more memory available you could use the code present in adafruit_dps310/ For usage refer to
