AKM IFBPF Technology (AK2364,AK2365A,AK2400)

AKM unique analog filter design technology enables integrated narrowband channel filter with high selectivity.

FeatureEliminates external IF ceramic filter

⇒ "minimize PCB area" and "improve drop impact resistance"

Two-way Radio ICs

FeatureSelectable filter bandwidth by register control

⇒ BPF_BW=±10kHz/±7.5kHz/±6kHz/±4.5kHz (AK2364)
±7.5kHz/±6kHz/±4.5kHz/±3kHz/±2kHz (AK2365A)

Two-way Radio ICs

FeatureVery small temperature drift and device variation of frequency response

Two-way Radio ICs

Digital Frequendy Modulation (AK2400,AK2401)

Frequency offset function

AK2400 and AK2401 have the frequency offset function, which enables glitch free frequency transition by register setting.
This function enables Digital Frequency Modulation for FM/FSK applications and Auto Frequency Correction.
AK2400 and AK2401 contributes to minimize PCB area and lower cost by replacing conventional modulation system in which variable-capacitors and other discrete components are used.
