MANHASSET, NY -- Bosch Sensortec has launched what it claims to be the world’s smallest triaxial gyroscope with a footprint of 3 x 3 x 0.95 mm and meeting the extreme requirements of the consumer electronics industry.
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.
Engineers designed the BMG160 specifically for applications in smartphones, gaming, and other mobile devices. Bosch said that its portfolio of sensors and associated software comprise all necessary elements for the latest generation of smartphones. Bosch Sensortec also holds all patents associated to this technology.
Sensor data from existing acceleration sensors, eCompass products, and gyroscope, direction and movement in three-dimensional space can all be precisely recognized. This is indispensable for future navigation and gaming applications in smartphones and tablet PCs. Bosch Sensortec develops and supplies software modules with six or nine Degrees of Freedom (DoF).
The Bosch Group has been the global market leader for MEMS sensors since 1998 and has to date sold more than 2 billion MEMS sensors.
