We are using the BMI085 in synced mode with the output rate set to 2KHz. The actual output rate seems to be more like 1980Hz. Is this within the expected range or is there a possibility that we are using the device wrong? What is the expected tolerance on the data rate in synced mode?

Thanks for the detailed reply. We measured the rate directly on the device consuming the IMU data. After further investigation we narrowed the problem down to occasionally missed interrupts on the host device. Without missed interrupts the rate is closer to 2000Hz (+- 3Hz).
