Bosch launches longevity program for industrial and IoT applications

Bosch Sensortec is launching a longevity program and expanding its product portfolio to meet the specific needs of industrial applications. By ensuring products will be available for ten years , this new program will give customers peace of mind, as well as access to high-performance, robust sensors, and increased purchasing flexibility due to smaller reel sizes.

 

In industrial and IoT applications, customers often require components to be available for a prolonged time period, typically ten years. This is due to long design cycles often lasting two years or more, where the cost and risk of new development, and the cost of re-qualification are substantial factors. Applications with long-lifecycle products that may require this extended longevity include for example industrial IoT (IIoT), industrial robots, logistics, factory and building automation, agricultural equipment, smart homes and home appliances as well as white goods.

 

To respond to this growing market demand, Bosch Sensortec is offering three products under the longevity program: BMI090L Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), BMA490L accelerometer, and BMP390L barometric pressure sensor.

 

  • The BMI090L is a high-performance longevity IMU designed for IIoT, robots, agricultural equipment, drones as well as white goods and home appliances. Thanks to its excellent vibration robustness and temperature stability, the BMI090L reliably enables use cases such as navigation, motion- and asset tracking. The sensor’s gyroscope offers a bias instability of less than 2 °/h which is unique among the IMUs available in the market.

 

  • The BMA490L is a high-performance longevity acceleration sensor targeting IIoT and logistics applications, agricultural and industrial robots, white goods and home appliances, as well as power tools. The sensor’s excellent temperature stability, low noise and low offset make it ideal for numerous use cases such as predictive maintenance, asset tracking and vibration monitoring. In the low-power operation mode, current consumption is reduced to 14 µA, thereby fulfilling the requirements for always-on applications.

 

  • The BMP390L is a high-performance longevity barometric pressure sensor. It is ideally suited for demanding industrial and IoT applications such as logistics, white goods and home appliances, precision agricultural machinery, robots and drones. The sensor offers an excellent temperature stability of typically ±0.6 Pa/K and a typical relative accuracy of ±0.03 hPa, which is superior to any other comparable product on the market today. Hence, the BMP390L reliably enables demanding use cases such as water level detection, asset tracking and navigation.

 

The BMI090L, BMA490L and BMP390L are available via Bosch Sensortec’s distributors. Minimum order quantity is 2,500 pieces.

Hello FPGA

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Getting started on an FPGA-based embedded vision project can be tricky. Locating all the components you need, getting them to talk to each other, and just getting your system to the video equivalent of “Hello World” is a pretty daunting task. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Avery Williams of Microchip Technology about the Hello FPGA kit - a low-cost, low-touch embedded vision kit for engineers new to FPGAs.
