The BNO055 is a System in a Package (SiP), integrating a triaxial 12-bit accelerometer, a triaxial 16-bit gyroscope with a range of ±2000 degrees per second, a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and a 32-bit microcontroller running the company’s BSX3.0 FusionLib software. At 5.2 x 3.8 x 1.1 mm, it is significantly smaller than comparable discrete or system-on-board solutions.
The hard- and software co-design enables high performance with low power consumption. Its Quaternion communication is 10 times more efficient than raw data and the integrated sensor fusion software reduces customer development costs and time. All components in one package leads to simplified system integration and faster time to market.
Bosch’s BNO055 is intended for augmented reality, more immersive gaming, personal health, fitness and well-being, indoor navigation and any other application requiring context awareness.
