In a trend-setting move for the consumer electronics industry, Bosch Sensortec has integrated two 3-axis MEMS sensors into a single package. The combination of an acceleration sensor and a gyroscope within this IMU is designed to meet the requirements of advanced consumer electronics applications such as game consoles or gaming applications in smartphones.
The BMI160 is an ultra-small, low power, low noise 16 bit inertial measurement unit designed for mobile applications like Augmented Reality applications or indoor navigation which require highly accurate, real-time sensor data. This MEMS sensor is available in a compact 14-pin 2.5 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm³ LGA package.
The BMI055 is an small, 6-axis inertial MEMS sensor, consisting of a digital, 3-axis, 12 bit acceleration sensor and a digital, 3-axis, 16 bit gyroscope with a footprint of only 3 x 4.5 mm².
