With the introduction and current sampling of the BMX055, Bosch Sensortec’s 9-axis (accelerometer, gyroscope and geomagnetic) sensor is the first available with all components developed and manufactured in house. The inertial measurement unit’s (IMU’s) footprint of 3.0 x 4.5 mm2 makes it the smallest on the market, too.
Using the company’s FusionLib sensor fusion software to optimize the use its proprietary MEMS sensor technologies, users easily obtain combined sensor data outputs and generated virtual sensor outputs such as quaternion, linear acceleration, rotation, gravity.
Performance capability the BMX055 includes:
- The accelerometer unit has a selection of g-ranges from ±2 to ±16g with a sensitivity of 1024 to 128 LSB/gand a noise density of 150µg/√Hz.
- The gyroscope features a wide measurement range with angular rates between ±125°/s and ±2000°/s and offers a very stable zero-rate offset temperature behavior.
- The geomagnetic sensor is characterized through a wide measurement range of ±1300µT in x and y axis and ±2500µT in z axis with heading accuracy of 2.5°.
