altitude logger

Recommended Posts

I am looking into building a altitude logger. I found a sensor MS5534-BP from Intersema and it has a A/D intergrated in the same chip. Does anyone have any idea on connecting this with a PIC and eeprom for later downloading info?

I've build an altimeter circuit using a MPX4115A. I'm into the testing phase but it seems to work quite well.
