9-DOF Absolute Orientation IMU Fusion Breakout - BNO055

SKU 565673

Now available from PMD Way is this great value Great value 9-DOF Absolute Orientation IMU Fusion Breakout - BNO055.

Based on the Bosch BNO055, who have taken a MEMS accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope into one chip with an ARM Cortex-M0 based processor to do the maths with the dat and output quaternions, Euler angles or vectors.

The BNO055 offers the following data:

  • Absolute Orientation (Euler Vector, 100Hz) Three axis orientation data based on a 360° sphere
  • Absolute Orientation (Quaterion, 100Hz) Four point quaternion output for more accurate data manipulation
  • Angular Velocity Vector (100Hz) Three axis of 'rotation speed' in rad/s
  • Acceleration Vector (100Hz) Three axis of acceleration (gravity + linear motion) in m/s^2
  • Magnetic Field Strength Vector (20Hz) Three axis of magnetic field sensing in micro Tesla (uT)
  • Linear Acceleration Vector (100Hz) Three axis of linear acceleration data (acceleration minus gravity) in m/s^2
  • Gravity Vector (100Hz) Three axis of gravitational acceleration (minus any movement) in m/s^2
  • Temperature (1Hz) Ambient temperature in degrees celsius

Board can operate on 5V or 3.3V power and logic. A 32.768 kHz crystal and inline header pins are included but not soldered to the board. 

Setting up up your board:

The ATX pin is SDA, and the LRX pin SCL. Pin COM3/I2C needs to be connected to GND for standard I2C bus use.

The BNO055 has three communication modes:

  • Standard/Fast I2C interface (mode 00)
  • HID over I2C (mode 01)
  • UART interface (mode 10)

These modes are selected by bridging various solder pads. For mode 00, bridge the pads as such:

Or for HID mode, bridge S0 to centre and -, bridge S1 to centre and +; for UART mode do the opposite.
