Three-in-one sensor packs in giro, accelerometer and tilt
New to the European market, and available from Acal BFi, is the BNO055 9-axis sensor fusion from Bosch Sensortec. Providing three sensors in one miniature package – giro, accelerometer and tilt, the sensor meets applications in navigation, augmented reality, robotics, gaming, context awareness and fitness and wellbeing.
It uses an intelligent 9-axis ”Absolute Orientation Sensor” combining sensors and sensor fusion to reduce development time and costs and reduce the complexity of the integration process for customers.
Measuring just 5.2 x 3.8 x 1.1mm², the sensor is significantly smaller than its competitors and is equipped with digital bi-directional I2C and UART interfaces and an intelligent power management system.
Martin Kemp, European Business Development Director – Sensors at Acal BFi said: “We are delighted to launch Bosch Sensortec’s BNO055 to the European market. The addition of the BNO055 complements Acal BFi’s current sensor portfolio and enhances the company’s custom sensor service. We have a proven track record in the design, development and build of custom sensor assemblies and work with our customers to develop innovative, reliable and accurate designs”.
