    BMX160 internal BMM150 mag orientation

    BMX160 internal BMM150 mag orientation

    Hello,

    I understand that the BMX160 has a BMM150 packaged internally. Can someone verify the magnetometer orientation of the BMM150 inside the BMX160?   It sure seems like the y axis does not follow the orientation drawing for the BMM150.

    Assuming the BMX160 accel is oriented with pin 1/dot in the same location as the BMM150, I get the following mapping.

    accel x = mag x 
    accel y = mag -y
    accel z = mag -z

    Thanks for any help/clarification!

    Hi lukec,

    Please note that the product is in PDN (Product Discontinuation Notice) period and check with your corresponding distributers regarding the product availability.
    With respect to your question regarding magnetometer orientation, we will come back to you soon.

    Hi lukec,

    After we check, magnetometer has same axes orientation with IMU if you read magnetometer data from BMX160. You couldn't need extral axes remapping for magnetometer, and don't need to care about how the BMM150 is placed inside the BMX160.
