<P>Hi,</P>
<P>BMI088 gyro has typical noise density of 0.014dps/rt(Hz). At 23Hz bandwidth, the RMS noise level (1-sigma) = 0.014 * root(1.22 * 23) = 0.08dps, where 1.22 is the coefficient of internal low pass filter. So 3-sigma RMS noise level = 0.24dps. If you calculate the standard deviation from your data collection Excel file, then you can check if it is within the 3-sigma of 0.24dps range or not. If you see gyro data spikes, then please check if you read 6-byte gyro data registers in one I2C or SPI transaction or not which is also called burst read.</P>
<P>Thanks.</P>Fri, 13 Nov 2020 21:08:15 GMThttps://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/Why-the-power-spectral-density-PSD-of-BMI088-Gyro-x-y-z-have/m-p/18087#M4839FAE_CA12020-11-13T21:08:15ZlarRe: Why the power spectral density(PSD) of BMI088 Gyro(x/y/z) have strange peak point?

<P>I have the similar problem. <STRONG>The spikes are not in the gyro data but in the power spectrum density of the gyro data.</STRONG></P><P>The problem I have is:</P><P>1. I am using my own PCB to get data via SPI from BMI088. I found the PSD of the gyro data has spikes (raw_331_230Hz). 230Hz means the gyro data is sampled at 2000Hz with the lowpass filter of 230Hz.</P><P>2. I then tried Bosch's development kit and used the same gyro settings. The spikes are still there (raw_Bosch_230Hz).</P><P>3. I then tried 523Hz LPF on Bosch's development kit. The spikes were gone.</P><P>So, where can these spikes be from?</P><P>Besides, choosing a lower cutoff frequency (230Hz vs. 523Hz) not only lowers PSD at high frequency but also reduces energy at low frequency (please also refer to figure below), which is strange.

<P>I also checked the RMS noise. According to your equation, for 523Hz bandwidth, the RMS is 0.014*sqrt(1.22*230) = 0.23dps. However, my data shows a much larger value than this. Please see the time series plot below. The range I am using is 2000dps.

<P>Hi Silva,</P>
<P>If your MCU timer interrupt has precise 10ms interval for example for 100Hz sampling rate, then you can set BMI088 gyro to 200Hz ODR/23Hz BW. When timer interrupt happens you can read gyro 6 byte data registers in one SPI or I2C transaction as burst read. Then you can plot your gyro data for standard deviation or PSD.</P>
<P>Thanks.</P>Mon, 16 Nov 2020 15:59:57 GMThttps://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/Why-the-power-spectral-density-PSD-of-BMI088-Gyro-x-y-z-have/m-p/18145#M4867FAE_CA12020-11-16T15:59:57ZRe: Why the power spectral density(PSD) of BMI088 Gyro(x/y/z) have strange peak point?

<P>Hi dxglaw,</P>
<P>Thanks for your inquiry.</P>
<P>BMI088 gyro is the same as BMG160 at <A href="https://www.mouser.com/datasheet/2/783/BST-BMG160-DS000-09-1221199.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.mouser.com/datasheet/2/783/BST-BMG160-DS000-09-1221199.pdf</A>. Please refer to page 44 that shows 523Hz BW at 2000Hz ODR is unfiltered data. However, when BMI088 is stationary the x/y/z raw data still should be within typical +/-1dps or +/-3dps min/max. It should not go to +/-15dps range like your plot. Maybe the noise comes from your PCB soldering. Please try our BMI088 shuttle board for testing.</P>
<P>Thanks.</P>Mon, 16 Nov 2020 16:04:40 GMThttps://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/Why-the-power-spectral-density-PSD-of-BMI088-Gyro-x-y-z-have/m-p/18146#M4868FAE_CA12020-11-16T16:04:40ZRe: Why the power spectral density(PSD) of BMI088 Gyro(x/y/z) have strange peak point?

<P>Hi dxglaw,</P>
<P>The gyro zero rate level or offset is not related to the full scale range. This means that the typical +/-1dps and min/max of +/-3dps apply to all full scale ranges.</P>
<P>Yes, you can use BMI055 shuttle board for testing because the gyro part is the same in both BMI055 and BMI088.</P>
<P>Please share the gyro raw data when you plot the PSD at 2000Hz ODR/230Hz BW.</P>

<P>Hi Vincint,</P><P>Using 230Hz LPF does provide a lower noise level. However, as we talked before, the data from 230Hz has spikes in the low frequency part in the PSD plot while data from 523Hz does not. So I would like to use 523Hz LPF and aply my own filter.</P><P>However, the 523Hz data has a much higher noise level. According to the datasheet, the noise density is 0.014dps/sqrt(Hz). For 230Hz bandwidth, the RMS should be 0.014*sqrt(1.22 * 230) = 0.23dps, where 1.22 is from the equation FAE_CA1 provided. For 523Hz bandwith, the RMS should be 0.014*sqrt(1.22*523) = 0.35dps. Actually, the RMS of 523Hz data is much larger than that. What I can see is that the 230Hz LPF not only reduce energy beyond 230Hz but also attenuates frequency from 0 to 230Hz, which is weird. Please refer to the red and yellow lines in the figure below. I zoomed in the plot to show only the low frequency.</P><P>Thank you.</P><P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="dxglaw_0-1605842495801.png" style="width: 655px;"><img src="https://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/6095i849BDAAF20F7279E/image-dimensions/655x491?v=v2" width="655" height="491" role="button" title="dxglaw_0-1605842495801.png" alt="dxglaw_0-1605842495801.png" /></span></P><P> </P>Fri, 20 Nov 2020 03:23:02 GMThttps://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/Why-the-power-spectral-density-PSD-of-BMI088-Gyro-x-y-z-have/m-p/18393#M4955dxglaw2020-11-20T03:23:02ZRe: Why the power spectral density(PSD) of BMI088 Gyro(x/y/z) have strange peak point?

<P>Thank you for the detail plotter.</P>
<P>as my colleague point out to you previously, 523Hz is almost raw data from MEMS unit, no filter applyed at all. We called it unfilter data. </P>
<P>This means the noise density calculation is not fit for those datas. the noise density shows the signal after filter result. </P>
<P>So the unfilter data with high noise is expected from sensor output. </P>
<P>In order to bring down the noise level, we add low pass filter with cut off frequency 230Hz. but it also introduce digitnal noise on PSD plotter. it is coming from digital front end design and confirmed by our engineer team. </P>Fri, 20 Nov 2020 06:29:46 GMThttps://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/Why-the-power-spectral-density-PSD-of-BMI088-Gyro-x-y-z-have/m-p/18397#M4959Vincent2020-11-20T06:29:46ZRe: Why the power spectral density(PSD) of BMI088 Gyro(x/y/z) have strange peak point?
