Bosch Sensortec has access to the development and manufacturing competencies of the Bosch Automotive Electronics division which makes for flexible and close cooperation during all project phases. This allows not only focus on new applications, but the ability to quickly respond to special customer requests. Due to its integration in the Bosch Group, Bosch Sensortec is capable of a rapid adaptation of existing sensors in new areas of application.
Bosch Sensortec Absolute Orientation Sensor BMX055 is a very small,
9-axis sensor, consisting of a triaxial 12bit acceleration sensor, a
triaxial 16bit, ±2000°/s gyroscope and a triaxial geomagnetic sensor.
The BMX055 allows accurate measurement of angular rate, acceleration and
geomagnetic fields in 3 perpendicular axes within one device. With its
ultra-small footprint of only 3 mm x 4.5 mm the BMX055 is unique in the
class of low-noise 9-axis measurement units. On top, the BMX055
integrates a multitude of features that facilitate its use especially in
the area of motion detection applications, such as device orientation
measurement, gaming, HMI and menu browser control. All three sensor
components of the BMX055 can be operated and addressed independently
from each other.All sensor parameters, like measurement ranges or
low-pass filter settings and all settings of the respective interrupt
engines can be easily programmed via the digital interfaces, i.e. I²C
and SPI (3-wire/4-wire).

BMP183 is based on piezo-resistive technology for EMC robustness, high accuracy and linearity, and long-term stability. This digital pressure sensor is designed for use in a variety of applications, including enhancement of GPS navigation, vertical velocity indication (rise/sink speed), and more.
Bosch Sensortec BMG160 is an ultra-small, digital 3-axis angular rate sensor with a measurement range up to 2000°/s and 16-bit digital resolution for consumer electronics applications. BMG160 allows low-noise measurement of angular rates in three perpendicular axes and is designed for use in cellular phones, handhelds, computer peripherals, man-machine interfaces, virtual reality features, and remote and game controllers. BMG160 features a small footprint of 3mm x 3mm, making it unique in the class of low-noise consumer electronics gyroscopes. This Bosch Sensortec device features oustanding zero-rate offset and offset stability over temperature. It is ideal for use in a variety of applications, including gaming, navigation systems, motion and activity measurement, and optical image stabilization.
Bosch Sensortec BMA220 / BMA222E / BMA250E are 6-, 8-, and 10-bit triaxial, low-g acceleration sensors with digital output for consumer market applications. These devices allow measurement of acceleration in three perpendicular axes. An evaluation circuitry (ASIC) converts the output of a micromechanical acceleration-sensing structure (MEMS) that works according to the differential capacitance principle. Bosch Sensortec BMA220, BMA222E, and BMA250E sensors match a multitude of hardware requirements and feature an ultra-small footprint and flat package ideally suited for mobile applications. BMA220 offers a variable voltage range from 1.6V to 3.6V while BMA22E and BMA250E offer a variable voltage range from 1.2V to 3.6V. Each of these devices optimizes functionality, performance, and power consumption in customer-specific applications.
