• Product Description


    BMI263 is a high-performance, low-power IMU featuring the new MIPI I3CSM serial interface. The IMU combines precise acceleration and angular rate measurement data with intelligent on-chip motion-triggered interrupt features. The 6-axis sensor features a 16-bit triaxial gyroscope and accelerometer in a compact 2.5 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm³ LGA package.

    BMI263 is Bosch Sensortec’s first IMU that is compliant with the latest I3C standard as defined by MIPI Alliance. BMI263 features MIPI I3CSM serial interface with two signal lines (Data SDA & Clock SDC), improving upon features, performance and power use of I2C while maintaining backwards compatibility. MIPI I3CSM serial interface reduces wiring complexity, pin count and signal paths, offering high-speed data transfer at very low power levels compared to the traditional I2C or SPI interfaces.

    On top, BMI263 features industry’s first self-calibrating gyroscope using motionless CRT (Component Re-Trimming) functionality to compensate MEMS typical soldering drifts, ensuring post-soldering sensitivity errors down to ± 0.4%.
