The newest member of the BMI260 family of IMUs includes intuitive gesture, context and activity recognition with an integrated plug-and-play step counter. The IMU handles these functions independently of the main system processor, thus significantly extends system battery life. The powerful and accurate gesture and activity-recognition features therefore run in the ultra-low power domain, with current consumption of just 30µA. This reduces power consumption and enables extended battery charging intervals.
The BMI270 measures only 2.5 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm3, and is pin-to-pin compatible with the BMI160 and BMI260. The IMU is well suited for many types of wearable devices, such as smart clothes, smart shoes, smart glasses, wrist- and ankle bands as well as hearables.
Enabled by the new Bosch MEMS process technology, the BMI270 features a strongly improved accelerometer performance. It saves OEMs valuable time and costs during testing and manufacturing.
The BMI270 is available in two application-specific versions, A and C: The A version detects wrist gestures (flick in/out, pivot up/push, arm up/down, and jiggle) for intuitive control of e.g. smart watches and is designed for Wear OS by GoogleTM. The C version has advanced features for recognizing context / activity change (standing, walking or being in a vehicle).
