• Product Description


    BMI085 is a high-performance IMU specifically designed for Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) applications. The 6-axis IMU combines a 16-bit triaxial gyroscope and a 16-bit triaxial accelerometer in a miniature 3 x 4.5 x 0.95 mm³ (16-pin) LGA package and features low latency and high temperature stability.

    The closed-loop gyroscope of BMI085 has an unmatched bias instability of less than 2°/h and low temperature coefficient of offset (TCO) below 15 mdps/K. The low-noise (120 µg/√Hz) and low-TCO (0.2 mg/K) accelerometer makes BMI085 a perfect choice for orientation tracking applications.

    BMI085 provides accurate and reliable 6-DoF motion tracking data even under demanding conditions, including environments where those conditions change, such as thermal effects like heating, typically encountered due to power dissipation in AR/VR head-mounted displays (HMDs).
