Application Note
Bosch Sensortec
BlueBox Demo-Board for the digital sensors
AN18002
SMB365 (acceleration) and SMD500 (pressure)
Installation and use of the BOSCH Sensortec
multi sensor, wireless Demo-Board
BlueBox V1.0
ABSTRACT
Based on the experience of 500 million MEMS sensors and testing to highest quality
standards, BOSCH Sensortec has developed a sensor family, consisting out of
pressure- and acceleration sensors with best-of-the-market performance and out-
standing reliability. Both the SMB365 acceleration sensor and the SMD500 pressure
sensor are specifically designed for digital low-power applications to enhance
functionality in consumer electronic devices as well as in health, logistics and security
systems. These sensors are available in small and thin standard packages
(QFN 4x4 mm² for acceleration and LCC8 5x5 mm² for pressure) to fit even into the
smallest, state-of-the-art devices.
This application note shows how to set up and how to install the SensorDesktop
software and the BlueBox hardware for functionality demonstration and some minor
evaluation purposes or application examples of the SMB365 and the SMD500 sensor.
The proper use and some general functions, e.g. wireless operation of the BlueBox
Demo-Board, are also described. For specific product evaluation refer to the BOSCH
Sensortec Evaluation Board which is especially designed for application engineering or
extensive testing purposes.
