We, Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) offer a variety of advanced sensing devices based on compound semiconductor technology and sophisticated IC products featuring analog/digital mixed-signal technology.
Current Sensor ICs
"Currentier" is magnetic open-type coreless current sensor IC with a built-in high-sensitivity Hall element. They can detect both DC and AC currents with high accuracy and fast response. Despite their small size, they generate less heat and have high isolation. Currentiers are safe, high performance products that are available in many models and which can be used for current detection in a variety of applications.
Intelligent Wakeup for Voice Products
AKM's ultra low-power AK5706 listens for specific types of audio activity, performing analog acoustic analysis for onlyafew micro-amps of current while the rest of your system sleeps. Onece it's heard something that fits your criteria, it begins recording to its integrated audio buffer and wakes the rest of your system - you've saved aton of battery and captured the entire audio event.
The AK5706 combines intelligent wake-up with a high-quality ADC and support for both analog and digital microphones.
