REUTLINGEN, Germany, Jan. 26, 2018 — Acceleration SensorThe BMA400 ultralow-power acceleration sensor from Bosch Sensortec GmbH is designed for wearables and Internet of Things applications.

The BMA400 draws 10× less current than existing accelerometers while delivering high performance. Its greatly reduced power demand significantly extends battery lifetime, especially on coin cell-powered devices. Due to continuous measurement, the sensor's high-quality measurement signal has precisely defined cutoff frequencies, making it very resistant to vibrations and useful in IoT use cases such as smart home security systems. False alarms triggered by vibrations coming from the outside environment, such as construction works, are easily prevented.

Due to its ultralow current step counter at 4 µA and intelligent power management features like built-in activity recognition, the BMA400 can effectively help wearable devices such as fitness bands, smart clothes, watches and activity trackers to achieve unprecedented battery life.
