This is a breakout board for the Bosch’s BMG160 triaxial digital gyroscope sensor. This MEMS sensor allows you to measure angular rates individually for every axis (X, Y and Z) with full-scale ranges that go from ±125 to ±2000 Degrees per Second (dps).

The BMG160 has plenty of options, for example data FIFO, full-scale selection, integrated low-pass filters, low power modes, different kinds of compensations. There is also the possibility to select the communication channel to use (I2C or SPI) by a pin that we kindly expose through a solder jumper.

The sensor also features a temperature sensor and 2 configurable interrupt pins that can be used to monitor new available data, any-motion and high-angular rate events (like shock detection).

The board features 4 mounting holes, 0.1″ (2.54mm) pins and two dedicated solder jumpers to enable the integrated pull-ups on the I2C lines.

The board comes fully tested and as shown on the images.
