Difference Between BNO055 With STEMMA QT and Without

by VFYZ on Tue Jun 30, 2020 4:28 am

Hi,

I was browsing through IMUs and noticed that there 2 different types of the BNO055 fusion breakout with a price difference of about $15. I looked into both of them but couldn't find what was different for the regular version except for an external 32.768KHz crystal and obviously no STEMMA QT connectors to explain the $15 increase in price. It says in the description of the STEMMA version that both use the same library and can run the same software. The specs for both are the exact same too. Does anyone know the difference between the two versions and why the regular version is $15 more expensive?

Here's the link to both BNO055 Fusion Breakouts:

Regular Version: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2472
STEMMA QT Version: https://www.adafruit.com/product/4646


Thanks!

As you say,here isn't any real difference other than the STEMMA-QT connectors. They both have an external xtal, BTW.

I have no idea why the prices differ so much, but my thought is that the older board cost more at the time to manufacture. IMO the only reason to get the non-STEMMA version is if you need to mount it flush against a surface. The 3.3v regulator chip is different as well.

Do you expect availability of # 4646 anytime soon? I like the connectorized version better.
TY!
