    BMI160 default gyroscope angular range rate

    Hi, 

    gyroscope in BMI160: what is the default setting for the angular range rate ?

    Is is right if I divide the rawdata with 16,4?

    I know that I get a range fom +/- 2000°/s, but are those the real degree per second values? seem to be really high.

    Are those values showing the dps(acceleration) of my movements, which I did while holding the sensor?

    I just move my arm.

    Please confirm or correct statement.

    kind regards

    See page 60 of the datasheet and the GYR_RANGE register. The default is 2000dps. Yes, 2000dps is 2000 degrees per second. Gyro samples show rate of rotation, not acceleration.
