REUTLINGEN, Germany — Bosch Sensortec GmbH has announced the BMX160, a compact, nine-axis microelectromechanical (MEMS) sensor for smartphones, smart watches, fitness trackers, smart jewelry and augmented reality devices.
The sensor is housed in a 2.5 × 3 × 0.95-mm3 package, combining accelerometer, gyroscope and geomagnetic sensor technologies. The BMX160 has a built-in power management unit and ultralow power background application, enabling the application processor to remain in sleep mode for a long period of time.
With low power consumption of <1.5 mA, the sensor is ideally suited for applications that face extreme form factor restraints.
