Bluetooth® Low Energy Transmitter IC


Bluetooth® Low Energy transmission ICs from Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation (AKM) help lower the cost of tags in applications such as Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) and IoT sensor nodes that require large numbers of beacon tags, thereby promoting IoT solutions. Bluetooth® beacons can be easily realized by using UART or I2C to write IC settings and write transmitted data to registers.

Real-time tracking of beacon tags with the highly accurate direction finding function (AoA Demo)

The direction finding function (AoA) that was added in Bluetooth® 5.1 is expected to be used for indoor positioning and Real-Time Location System (RTLS) applications. Refer to an example of actual human movement detection in an office using the AK1595A Bluetooth® transmission IC with this function.

Bluetooth® transmission IC with Direction Finding

The AK1595A and AK1595B is a transmission-only IC developed for applications that require only transmission without the receiving function, and can easily realize Bluetooth® beacons without complicated programming by simply writing the AK1595A and AK1595B settings and transmission data to registers using UART or I2C.

What makes AKM different?

Low power consumption, Low cost, and No programming required

Challenges for the widespread use of Bluetooth® asset-tracking tags are the labor required for periodically replacing the batteries and the cost of the tags. The Bluetooth® Low Energy transmission ICs from Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation (AKM) enable low-power consumption and a low-cost by restricting the functions to transmission only, thereby helping to solve those problems. Because they are easy to use with no programming required , the requirements needed for introduction are also very low.
