Are prototyping a sensor solution using bmi160. However, it is out of stock of the major (main) distributors. Can BMX160 fully replace it, having similar characteristics and operation? (It is double as expensive and a recent release)
Yes, you can use BMX160 to replace BMI160, because BMX160 = BMI160 + BMM150 where BMM150 is connected to BMI160's secondary interface inside BMX160. So if you don't use BMM150 inside BMX160, then BMX160 becomes BMI160 with the same performance.
