• Product Description


    BMI088 is a high-performance 6-axis inertial sensor consisting of a 16-bit digital, triaxial, ±24g accelerometer and a 16-bit digital, triaxial, ±2000°/s gyroscope. BMI088 allows highly accurate measurement of orientation and detection of motion along three orthogonal axes.

    With high vibration robustness and small footprint of 3 x 4.5 x 0.95 mm³, BMI088 is unique in the class of high-performance IMUs used in harsh environments such as those in drones and robotics applications. BMI088 is specifically designed to effectively suppress vibrations that could occur due to resonances on the pcb or the structure of the total system. Apart from high vibration robustness, the excellent temperature stability of BMI088 helps reduce the design effort and costs on a system level.


    - Drones and flying toys

    - Industrial robots, hover boards

    - Domestic appliances (e.g. vacuum cleaners, social robots, etc.)


    Drone Applications

    Excellent stability, accurate heading and precise altitude measurement: The performance, vibration robustness and temperature stability of the BMI088 greatly enhance the drone flying experience by making accurate steering easier even in naturally high-vibration environments. The BMI088 is compatible for use with other Bosch sensors, e.g. BMP38x for altitude measurement and BMM150 for heading.
