Find your way: absolute orientation sensors

The highly integrated 9-axis absolute orientation sensor is a combination of a 3-axis acceleration sensor, a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis geomagnetic sensor. The integrated components of this MEMS sensor can be accessed independently and is fully supported by Bosch Sensortec’s FusionLib Software library. This absolute orientation sensor module can be found for example in the field of AR, Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and Location-Based Services.



The BMX160 is a very small low power, low noise absolute orientation sensor designed for use in wearable devices. It comprises a 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and geomagnetic sensor in a 14-pin 2.5 × 3.0 × 0.95 mm³ LGA package.

  • Ultra-small
  • Low power
  • Low noise
