Three Sensor IC highlights out of 3-axis and 6-axis Bosch portfolio


3-axis sensor BMA355:

Industry’s smallest 3-axis MEMS accelerometer from Bosch Sensortec set to become the new standard for wearable devices.

  • The BMA355 accelerometer is optimized to deliver high performance accelerometer functionality into highly space-constrained products
  • Applications include fitness tracker, pedometer in bracelets, life-style devices and jewelry

With the BMA355, Bosch Sensortec offers the world’s smallest 3-axis MEMS accelerometer, featuring a wafer-level chip scale package with a size of just 1.2 x 1.5 x 0.8 mm3. With a current consumption of only 130 μA in full operation, the BMA355 is ideally suited for wearable devices. In low-power mode operation, the current consumption can be even further reduced by more than a factor of ten, making this device ideal for always-on applications.

6-axis sensor BMI160:


Bosch Sensortec launches first IMU with sub 1mA current consumption

High accuracy, low noise in industry’s lowest current consumption and footprint

  • Ultra-low power, high precision 6-axis IMU in industry leading footprint
  • Enables always-on applications for wearable devices
  • Supports precise 9-axis sensor data fusion computation

Bosch Sensortec‘s new BMI160 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) integrates a state-of-the-art 16 bit 3-axis, low-g accelerometer and an ultra-low power 3-axis gyroscope into a single package. It has been designed specifically for high precision, always-on 6-axis and 9-axis applications in smart phones, tablets, wearable devices, remote controls, game controllers, head-mounted devices and toys. The BMI160 is available in a 14-pin 2.5 × 3.0 × 0.8 mm3 LGA package. When the accelerometer and gyroscope are in full operation mode, the typical current consumption is 950µA, best in class by a factor of two.
