    BMI160 succsessor

     

    Currently we're using the BMI160. Since the production is being stopped, I searched for an alternative and found the BMI260. Is this device fully compatible to the BMI160 regarding the software (registers, commands, ...)? I also discovered that the BMI263 and BMI270 have similar data sheets. Are these devices also compatible with the BMI160? What differences exist? Do you have created an overview showing these differences on a single page? At last, is it possible to receive samples in order to test the BMI260 and possibly the other two devices if they are compatible with our design?

    Hello, 

     

    BMI160 successor is BMI270, it is pin to pin compatible. 

    https://www.bosch-sensortec.com/products/motion-sensors/imus/bmi270/

    In more details, I uploaded the comparison chart between BMI160 and BMI270. 

    You need to buy it thru mouser or digikey. 

    Thanks,

    Thank you very much for your fast response!

    What about the BMI260 and BMI263, can you please create also a comparison chart?!  

    Since every device seems to be "out of stock", would it at least be possible to receive a few samples for creating prototype devices.

    We are focusing on BMI270, so BMI270 is the successor for BMI160. 

    In terms of sample, please visit https://www.bosch-sensortec.com/about-us/contact/contact-form, use the contact form to submit your request and please make sure you refer to the question posed in the community.
