What makes AKM different?
AKM's Bluetooth® Low Energy transmission ICs are selected for applications requiring large volumes of beacon tags, such as Bluetooth® asset tracking tags due to the following reasons
Bluetooth® Low Energy transmission IC
Three reasons what makes AKM different?
Its low power consumption enables long-term operation of batteries and the creation of a battery-free system
Contributes to battery life especially in applications with long transmission intervals/small battery capacity.
In applications with advertising transmissions periodically, such as Bluetooth® beacons, the standby power during non-transmission significantly affects the overall power consumption. The AK1595A is equipped with a low-power consumption timer that operates in 0.5 uA to reduce power consumption, enabling the use of small, thin batteries and the construction of battery-free systems.

Its ultra-low power consumption from power-on to advertising transmission makes it suitable for energy harvesting applications.
A typical Bluetooth® SoC (System on a chip) consumes a lot of power to load the program memory at startup and takes longer to boot. AK1595A realizes its unique protocol stacks with hardware without installing any memory, thereby achieving low power consumption/high-speed startup for the applications of frequent power ON/OFF.
Reduced total cost of products including peripheral parts
Compact and low-cost due to its specialization in the transmission function only.
Easy PCB designing with fewer external elements.
Easy to use with no programming required
Bluetooth® Beacon transmission enabled in only 2 steps.
STEP2: Register setting via UART or I²C interface.
