Mouser now stocking the BMI160 6-Axis from Bosch Sensortec

Mouser Electronics is now stocking the BMI160 6-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from Bosch Sensortec. This low-power, low-noise unit is designed for mobile applications that require highly accurate, real-time sensor data, such as augmented reality, immersive gaming and indoor navigation. The BMI160's tiny 2.5 × 3.0 × 0.83mm, 14-pin LGA package and built-in configurable power management unit (PMU) make it the among the smallest inertial measurement units on the market.

The Bosch Sensortec BMI160 6-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit features a 16-bit, 3-axis accelerometer and an ultra-low power 16-bit, 3-axis gyroscope that consume only 950uA in full operation without internal duty cycling "" suitable for always-on applications like wearable devices. Further supporting always-on applications, a configurable on-chip interrupt engine provides context awareness for operations such as any- or no-motion detection, tap/double tap sensing, orientation detection, free-fall, or shock events. The IMU also offers 6- and 9-axis sensor fusion, synchronising data with an external sensor, such as a magnetometer.

Bosch's BMI160 is also equipped with an integrated 1024 byte FIFO buffer that supports low-power applications and prevents data loss in non-real-time systems. The IMU offers a wide supply voltage (VDD) range from 1.7V to 3.6V, a flexible digital primary interface to connect to host over I2C or SPI, and compatibility with Android 4.4 (KitKat) and Windows 8.1.

The Bosch Sensortec BMI160 6-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit is suited for augmented reality, immersive gaming, personal health and fitness, indoor navigation and any other sensor-based applications requiring context awareness. To learn more, visit
