Bosch Sensortec Launches the Bmx160 - a Compact 9-Axis Motion Sensor

Bosch Sensortec is launching the BMX160, a compact 9-axis motion sensor that is ideally suited for a wide range of applications such as smartphones, smart watches, fitness trackers, smart jewelry - e.g. rings, necklaces - as well as Augmented/Virtual Reality devices. Compared to smartphones, wearables face much harsher space and power constraints. It's precisely this environment where a tiny power-efficient 9-axis sensor like the BMX160 offers an ideal solution. This new sensor is housed in a compact 2.5 x 3.0 x 0.95 mm3 package, the smallest 9-axis motion sensor in the industry. By combining Bosch Sensortec's advanced accelerometer, gyroscope and geomagnetic sensor technologies, the BMX160 is able to meet the increasingly more stringent low-power requirements demanded by wearable devices. Bosch's low-power sensor technology makes this the standout 9-axis inertial sensor on the market, reducing power consumption below 1.5 milliampere (mA). This sensor is ideally suited for applications that face extreme form factor restraints.

QuickLogic Corporation Selects Bosch Sensortec Motion Sensors for EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC Reference Design

QuickLogic Corporation announced that it has incorporated high-accuracy environmental and motion sensors from Bosch Sensortec into its EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC Reference Design Platform. The QuickLogic EOS S3 SoC is the lowest power programmable sensor processing reference design available, and when paired with high-accuracy Bosch sensors, delivers substantially lower power consumption for mobile and IoT designs. The reference design enables OEMs to efficiently develop high-performance smartphone, wearable and IoT systems using the Bosch Sensortec BMI160 motion sensors. The BMI160 integrates an accelerometer and a gyroscope for motion sensing. Data from these, and other sensors that are integrated in the reference design, is fused and processed by the EOS S3 sensor processing SoC. The reference design platform includes the EOS S3 sensor processing SoC, a development board with a variety of sensors, which includes the Bosch BMI160 and an integrated microphone. To enable rapid evaluation and design development, the platform connects directly to the Google Nexus 5 smartphone through an integrated micro-USB connection port. The system is also supported by QuickLogic's Celeris Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Tool Suite and Eclipse plug-in software development environment with ARM Cortex M4F support. The platform also provides support for the Android Marshmallow operating system. QuickLogic's EOS S3 Sensor Processing SoC Reference Design Platform with Bosch sensors is available.

Bosch Sensortec GmbH Introduces First Generation of Sensor Hub Products with Optimized Vital Sensing Features

Bosch Sensortec GmbH has introduced its first generation of sensor hub products with optimized vital sensing features. These devices fuse photoplethysmography (PPG) signals with the onboard inertial MEMS sensors signals for robust, motion compensated heart rate measurement and provide users with valuable insights about their wellbeing and fitness level using Firstbeat's field-proven vital analytics algorithms. These new BHV250 and BHV160 sensors are designed for always-on sensor enabled wearable applications such as fitness wristbands, earphones and smart textiles. As a complete sensor solution they feature ultra-low power consumption in a compact package, with integrated software and a wide-range support for different PPG chipsets. The integrated software from Firstbeat processes raw sensor data to open up a world of motion-compensated vital monitoring, activity recognition applications and gesture based user interfaces. The combination of the Bosch's Vital Sensor Hubs with Firstbeat's extensive vital analytics software enables a rich user experience by providing the tools for sleep analysis, calorie consumption calculation, fitness training evaluation, and "stress and recovery" monitoring. The myriad of future applications is only limited by the designer's imagination. The BHV250 and BHV160 integrate innovative 3- respectively 6-axis inertial MEMS sensors designed around the new Bosch Sensortec DSP 'Fuser Core' powering Firstbeat's vital analytics software. Both devices include an accelerometer, and the BHV160 also includes a gyroscope. The Android Wear-compatible sensor hubs are the components with the lowest power consumption available on the market today, helping to significantly extend system battery life time. The sensor hubs have tiny footprints that are indispensable for applications where space is tight. The BHV160 measures 3 x 3 x 0.95 mm3, while the BHV250 only a mere 2.2 x 2.2 x 0.95 mm3.
