    BMI160 unused magnetometer interface pins (ASDx/ASCx)

    BMI160 datasheets states that when the magnetometer isn’t connected, ASDx and ASCx pins are in high impedance state and can be left unconnected (floating). However, in our application, we need to connect pins either to Vio (1V8) or GND.

    Which one is recommended way in BMI160 case?

    Hi, Thank you for your message. You are free to connect BMI160 ASDX pin and ASCX pin to either to Vio (1V8) or GND when the secondary I2C interface is not used.
