BMI055 6-axis inertial sensor


General description

The BMI055 is an ultra-small, 6 axis inertial sensor, consisting of: A digital, triaxial 12bit acceleration sensor and a digital, triaxial 16bit, ±2000°/s gyroscope. The BMI055 allows very low-noise measurement of angular rates and accelerations in 3 perpendicular axes and thus senses tilt, motion, shock and vibration in cellular phones, handhelds, computer peripherals, man-machine interfaces, remote and game controllers.

 With its ultra-small footprint of only 3 mm x 4.5 mm the BMI055 is unique in the class of low-noise inertial measurement units. On top, the BMI055 integrates a multitude of features that facilitate its use especially in the area of motion detection applications, such as device orientation measurement, gaming, HMI and menu browser control


  • Activity monitoring, step-counting
  • Navigation
  • Vibration measurement, also for active damping
  • Six-dimensional tracking of trajectories
  • Flat detection, tap sensing, menu scrolling
  • Tilt compensation for electronic compass
  • Advanced power management for mobile devices
  • Shock and free-fall detection
  • Image stabilization
