digital triaxial gyroBosch Sensortec announced the BMG160 digital triaxial gyroscope for smartphone and gaming applications. Asserted to be the world’s smallest triaxial gyroscope, the part features high functionality in a 3-mm x 3-mm package, and comprehensive sensor concepts and associated software from a single source. Owing to its low footprint, low power consumption and low noise, the BMG160 triaxial gyroscope meets even the extreme requirements of the consumer electronics industry, according to the company. The gyroscope was designed specifically for applications in smart phones, gaming, and other mobile devices.

All technologies from a single source

The triaxial gyroscope completes Bosch Sensortec’s product line for the consumer electronics industry. The Bosch portfolio also comprises acceleration and pressure sensors as well as electronic compass solutions. Thanks to the sophisticated fusion of sensor data from existing acceleration sensors, eCompass products, and gyroscope, direction and movement in three-dimensional space can be precisely recognized. Sensor data fusion is indispensable for future navigation and gaming applications in smart phones and tablet PCs. Bosch Sensortec develops and supplies software modules with six or nine Degrees of Freedom (DoF).

Bosch Sensortec’s newly expanded and perfectly harmonized product line is an industry first: all of the currently relevant sensors and associated software for the latest generation of smart phones are now available from a single source.

Bosch Sensortec not only offers a complete portfolio of sensors, it also holds all patents associated to this technology. Moreover, the company has the manufacturing expertise and capacity for the large-scale series production of complex sensors. In the future, these will be decisive factors for consumer device manufacturers. Their competitiveness in a market characterized by ever faster product cycles will depend highly on reliable supply and delivery.

Bosch at CES

Two Bosch Group companies, Bosch Sensortec and Akustica, will be jointly showcasing their consumer MEMS products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week in Las Vegas. One of the highlights of the exhibit will be a demonstration of Bosch Sensortec’s BMG160.
