What is the definition of bandwidth?

The maximum input frequency to which a motion sensor can respond and provide a reliable angular velocity or linear acceleration value. Inputs outside of the rated frequency are typically attenuated. Bandwidth is also related to the sampling rate (see sampling rate). Higher bandwidth sensors offering better performance by reacting more rapidly to an input.
