Rutronik adds new Bosch Sensortec accelerometer

The BMA400 allows continuous, low-noise measurement of motion on three axes with 12-bit digital resolution and several selectable bandwidths. The sensor detects tilting movements, linear motion, and tapping / double tapping. It also tracks the level of activity and counts the number of steps taken.

The integrated step counter and embedded activity tracking function consumes 4 µA of power, which can be reduced to 800 nA in ultra-energy-saving mode.

With standard data capture, the acceleration data is continuously read out via the sensor’s digital interface and processed by an external MCU. With the plug and play function, data processing takes place inside the chip. The sensor can trigger an interrupt signal for predefined situations.
