BOSCH SENSORTEC BMA456 hearable accelerometer provides optimized hearable features integrated in one sensor and complements firm’s existing variant. Manufacturers can now design smaller and more accurate hearables with lower power consumption while increasing their performance. Variant integrates hearable-specific gestures for intuitive user interactions such as tap, double-tap and triple-tap. Thereby, the user can, for example, conveniently control playback, manage the volume, or accept and decline calls. All of these functions are carried out within the device itself, thus eliminating the need to wake up a power-hungry application processor. These features and its extremely low height of 0.65 mm make device suitable fit for Truly Wireless Stereo (TWS) headsets and midrange hearables used for entertainment and in everyday life.
