Bosch Sensortec BMC150 6-Axis MEMS eCompass Reverse Costing Analysis

DUBLIN, Ireland, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4z4lzz/bosch_sensortec) has announced the addition of the "Bosch Sensortec BMC150 6-Axis MEMS eCompass Reverse Costing Analysis" report to their offering.

The BMC150 combines a 12-bit 3-Axis accelerometer and a wide-range 3-Axis geomagnetic sensor in a 2.2x2.2mm LGA package (the smallest footprint at its introduction). All the functionalities are developed and manufactured by Bosch.

Compared to its predecessor BMC050, the BMC150 achieve almost 50% footprint reduction. This reduction has been made possible by the integration of the second generation of Bosch geomagnetic sensor where the 3-Axis are integrated on a single die compared to 3 separates dies for the previous generation.

The magnetic sensor still uses Bosch FlipCore technology for X/Y-Axis sensing and Hall element for Z-Axis sensing. The MEMS accelerometer is also an evolution of the one found in BMC050.

The BMC150 is a very low power (190µA) and high resolution (0.3µT) 6-axis digital compass targeted for consumer mobile applications.

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small,...
In 2014, the market witnessed a massive migration to the cloud as enterprises finally overcame their fears of the cloud’s viability, security, etc. Over the past 18 months, AWS, Google and Microsoft have waged an ongoing battle through a wave of price cuts and new features. For IT executives, sorting through all the noise to make the best cloud investment decisions has become daunting. Enterprises can and are moving away from a "one size fits all" cloud approach. The new competitive field has ...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products.
