At https://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/BMI270-remove-unnecessary-data-from-bmi2... there is mention of a "mini version of bmi270 configuration file, which only supports reading FIFO data and raw data without any algorithm". I have an application in which powerup time is critical, so I'd like access to the mini version.
I also read a post here: https://community.bosch-sensortec.com/t5/MEMS-sensors-forum/BMI270-Initialization/td-p/20035 that states I don't need to load a config file at all. There are conflicting posts, so I'd like to know if this is correct. If I'm only reading FIFO, accel, and gyro data, do I need to load a config file or not?
Yes, there was mini version of BMI270 configuration file, which only supports reading FIFO data and raw data without any algorithm. But it was not officially released, you could apply for it offline if you would like to design a project with BM270.
config file download is necessary if you only reading FIFO, accel, and gyro data.
