Bosch Sensortec is focusing on the Internet of Things applications at electronica (they will not be alone) and on the stand will demonstrate a broad range of ultra-miniature sensor building blocks for connected living, along with exciting new applications. The BMI160 is the first Inertial Measurement Unit with sub 1mA current consumption designed for high precision, always-on 6-axis and 9-axis applications in smart phones, tablets and wearables.
Also on parade is the BME280 which combines sensors for barometric pressure, humidity and temperature to support emerging high performance applications such as indoor navigation, home automation control, personalised weather stations and innovative sport and fitness applications.
The first in a new family of Application Specific Sensor Nodes (ASSNs), the BNO055 implements an intelligent 9-axis “Absolute Orientation Sensor,” which includes sensors, a µController and sensor data fusion software within a small single package.
At only 1.2x1.5 mm2 the BMA355 is a small 3-axis MEMS accelerometer
enabling designers to embed accelerometer functionality in space-constrained applications, such as power management for hearing aids and sensor nodes in ubiquitous sensor networks for the IoTS.
