Bosch Sensortec – BMX055

The absolute orientation sensor BMX055 is a very small, 9-axis sensor, consisting of a triaxial 12bit acceleration sensor, a triaxial 16bit, ±2000°/s gyroscope and a triaxial geomagnetic sensor. The BMX055 allows accurate measurement of angular rate, acceleration and geomagnetic fields in 3 perpendicular axes within one device.

Sensor Features:

With its ultra-small footprint of only 3 mm x 4.5 mm the BMX055 is unique in the class of low-noise 9-axis measurement units. On top, the BMX055 integrates a multitude of features that facilitate its use especially in the area of motion detection applications, such as device orientation measurement, gaming, HMI and menu browser control.

All three sensor components of the BMX055 can be operated and addressed independently from each other. All sensor parameters, like measurement ranges or low-pass filter settings and all settings of the respective interrupt engines can be easily programmed via the digital interfaces, i.e. I²C and SPI (3-wire/4-wire).

Target Applications:

  • Navigation (in-door), dead-reckoning
  • Augmented reality
  • Human-machine interface and remote controls
