• Product Description


    The BMG250 is an ultra-small, digital 3-axis angular rate sensor with a flexible measurement range from 125°/s up to 2000°/s (dps) and a high digital resolution of 16 bit that provides a precise low noise angular rate (gyroscopic) measurement at market leading low power consumption. With its secondary 3-wire, 10 MHz SPI interface it is optimized for image stabilization duties in parallel to standard user interface applications. It has been designed for low power, high precision multi-axis user-interface applications (UI) parallel to optical- or electronic image stabilization (OIS & EIS) in mobile phones, tablets, camera modules and head-mounted devices. Parallel OIS / EIS UI functionality is mandatory in use-case scenarios like Panorama panning image.

    Gaming Applications

    Gaming consoles are a normal part of many people's everyday lives. Soccer, dancing, tennis and a multitude of games utilise motion detection. Of course, many game applications use MEMS sensors, e.g. acceleration sensors detect motion to enhance the user's gaming experience. Sensing the particular movement of the user is converted into a motion-based interface for a game. This opens up a world of opportunities for simpler, more interactive user interfaces.

    Imaging Applications

    Make those unforgettable moments last forever: You take the photo and the sensor will do the rest. Today, not it's not only smartphones that are equipped with cameras; drones, for instance, are increasingly becoming important tools in the hands of foreward-thinking photographers. When a device makes uncontrolled movements, this is instantly corrected with the help of MEMS sensors.
