Product Information

Name: BNO055

The BNO055 is the first in a new family of Application Specific Sensor Nodes (ASSN) that implement a complete motion sensor solution, including all sensors and sensor hub functionality, in a single package.

The BNO055 integrates a 14-bit accelerometer, a 16-bit gyroscope, a geomagnetic sensor and a SAMD20 microcontroller running Bosch Sensortec sensor fusion software.

It is the smallest solution on the market with a footprint of 5.2 x 3.8 x 1.1mm² and the first all-in-one Windows® 8.1 compatible sensor hub.

Software is an integral part of the delivered solution. It ensures the optimal system performance and eliminates the need for third-party software integration.


Block Diagram



Bosch Sensortec's BNO055 is a family of Application Specific Sensor Nodes (ASSN) implementing an intelligent 9-axis "Absolute Orientation Sensor," which includes sensors and sensor fusion in a single package. BNO055 is a System in Package (SiP), integrating a triaxial accelerometer, a triaxial gyroscope a triaxial geomagnetic sensor and Atmel's SAM D20 32-bit microcontroller running the Bosch Sensortec's FusionLib software. At just 5.2 x 3.8 x 1.1 mm, it is significantly smaller than comparable discrete or system-on-board solutions. BNO055 is Windows 8.1 certified and Android compliant.
