• Product Description


    The BMI055 is an ultra-small, 6-axis inertial sensor, consisting of: A digital, triaxial 12bit acceleration sensor and a digital, triaxial 16bit, ±2000°/s gyroscope. The BMI055 allows very low-noise measurement of angular rates and accelerations in 3 perpendicular axes and thus senses tilt, motion, shock and vibration in cellular phones, handhelds, computer peripherals, man-machine interfaces, remote and game controllers.

    With its ultra-small footprint of only 3 x 4.5 mm² the BMI055 is unique in the class of low-noise inertial measurement units. On top, the BMI055 integrates a multitude of features that facilitate its use especially in the area of motion detection applications, such as device orientation measurement, gaming, HMI and menu browser control.


    - Activity monitoring, step-counting

    - Navigation

    - Vibration measurement, also for active damping

    - Six-dimensional tracking of trajectories

    - Flat detection, tap sensing, menu scrolling

    - Tilt compensation for electronic compass

    - Advanced power management for mobile devices

    - Shock and free-fall detection

    - Image stabilization


    Imaging Applications

    Make those unforgettable moments last forever: You take the photo and the sensor will do the rest. Today, 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.
