The BMI260 family member offers intuitive gesture, context and activity recognition and has an integrated plug-and-play step counter. These functions operate independently of the main system processor giving them a current consumption of only 30µA. Measuring only 2.5 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm, the device is pin-to-pin compatible with the BMI160 and BMI260.

The BMI270 has improved accelerometer performance and comes in two application-specific versions, A and C: The A version detects wrist gestures for intuitive control and is designed for Wear OS by Google. The C version has advanced features for recognizing context/activity change.
