BMG160

The BMG160 is an ultra-small, digital 3-axis angular rate sensor with a measurement range up to 2000°/s and a digital resolution of 16 bit for consumer electronics applications. The BMG160 allows low-noise measurement of angular rates in 3 perpendicular axes and is designed for use in cellular phones, handhelds, computer peripherals, man-machine interfaces, virtual reality features, remote and game controllers.

With its small footprint of only 3 mm x 3 mm the BMG160 is unique in the class of low-noise consumer electronics gyroscopes. The zero-rate offset and offset stability over temperature of the BMG160 are outstanding.

Applications

  • Gaming
  • Navigation systems
  • Motion and activity measurement
  • Optical image stabilization
