Intelligent nine-axis absolute orientation sensor system in a package
Design & Manufacture
Bosch Sensortec's BNO055 intelligent 9-axis absolute orientation sensor is
now available from Mouser. The system in package (SiP) device integrates a
triaxial 14-bit accelerometer, a triaxial 16-bit gyroscope with a range of
±2000 degrees per second, a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a 32-bit ARM
Cortex M0+ microcontroller running Bosch Sensortec sensor fusion software,
in a single package.
The corresponding chip-sets are integrated into one single 28-pin LGA 3.8mm
x 5.2mm x 1.1mm housing. For optimum system integration the BNO055 is
equipped with digital bidirectional I2C and UART interfaces. The I2C
interface can be programmed to run with the HID-I2C protocol turning the
BNO055 into a plug-and-play sensor hub solution for devices running the
Windows 8.0 or 8.1 operating system.
Typical applications include navigation, robotics, fitness / well-being,
augmented reality, context awareness, tablets and ultra-books.
