Ineltek UK, the UK and Ireland arm of Germany’s largest independent semiconductor distributor has further enhanced its specialist design-led product offering with the MEMS Sensors and Solutions experts Bosch Sensortec GmbH (full announcement). The addition of Bosch Sensortec’s world-leading products is highly synergistic with Ineltek’s existing portfolio targeting the Internet of Things (IoT) and Wearable Technology markets.


To accompany this announcement, Ineltek UK is actively promoting and supporting the new BNO055 Xplained Pro extension board which allows rapid evaluation of Bosch Sensortec’s BNO055 9-axis Absolute Orientation Sensor device within Atmel’s popular Xplained platform. This extension board is available for only $19 from the Atmel webstore.

The BNO055 is the first in a new family of Application Specific Sensor Nodes (ASSN) which includes sensors and sensor fusion in a single 5.2×3.8×1.1mm System in Package (SiP) integrating:

  • Triaxial 14-bit accelerometer
  • Triaxial 16-bit gyroscope with a range of ±2000 degrees per second
  • Triaxial geomagnetic sensor
  • 32-bit microcontroller running BSX3.0 FusionLib software

BNO055 is perfectly suited for applications such as augmented reality, deeply immersive gaming, personal health and fitness, indoor navigation and any other application requiring context awareness.
