Thanks for replying,
I was following the instructions from
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-bme ... ython-test
Since I wasn't having any luck with I2C I attempted to use SPI as you recommended.
When running the following code from the tutorial in the link above I get the error:
RuntimeError: Failed to find BME280! Chip ID 0xff
Below is the python code I used
spi = busio.SPI(board.SCK, MOSI=board.MOSI, MISO=board.MISO)
cs = digitalio.DigitalInOut(board.D5)
bme280 = adafruit_bme280.Adafruit_BME280_SPI(spi, cs)
The thing that bothers me is that measuring from the 3.3v pin to ground should return around 3.3v even if the sensor is attached. I am thinking there might be a short in the breakout board.
