Product Description

The BNO080 is a 9-axis System in Package (SiP) which enables rapid development of sensor-enabled Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Robotics and IoT devices. Co-developed by Bosch and Hillcrest Labs, it features a high-performance accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope with a low-power 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ MCU in a small package. Hillcrest’s Freespace® sensor hub software pre-integrated on the BNO080 provides exceptional 9-Axis and 6-Axis motion tracking to enable exciting sensor applications in diverse consumer and IoT products.

The BNO080 provides application specific configurations, features, and performance in a small turn-key component that benefits OEMs through faster time-to-market, reductions in development time and BOM cost, and delivering the highest precision and quality.

With sensors and software pre-integrated, the BNO080 eases system integration, provides faster time to market and reduces development costs.


The BNO080 provides both a head-tracking solution and a 3DoF controller solution for AR and VR products. Low power consumption and compact size (5.2mm x 3.8mm x 1.1mm) make the BNO080 ideal for head worn devices, where both power and space are limited. The BNO080 provides low latency, high sample rate, exceptional tracking accuracy and smooth orientation updates, yielding superior head tracking performance.


 The BNO080 is optimized for service robots such as cleaners that employ Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) or other ‘intelligent’ navigation solutions. The combination of Hillcrest’s proprietary software and 9-axis sensors delivers superior heading performance even when the surface is not level.
