Intelligent System Wakeup Solution

Acoustic Activity Analyzer (AAA) block listens for relevant audio – consuming only 32 uA – while the rest of the device (and system) remains powered off. The AAA provides more than just level-triggered audio detection – it constantly analyzes incoming content against customized criteria.

Simplifying wireless communication in your products


Bluetooth® Low Energy transmission can be achieved by setting a few register bits (for transmission power, data, and transmission start trigger) via UART or I2C. This simplicity makes it easy to add wireless connectivity to an existing system with the AK1595 – no need to develop complicated, proprietary micro controller code. The AK1595 is leading the way to smaller, more secure and longer-lasting sensor modules for the connected home.

Ultra-Low Power Hi-Fi D/A Converter


The power consumption of a Hi-Fi D/A converter has typically been too large for a battery-powered product, presenting the challenge of balancing excellent sound quality against the battery capacity required for a compelling listening experience. The AK4331 has answered that challenge: it is a 32-bit stereo D/A converter with built-in headphone amplifier that consumes only 4.4mW of power while still providing THD+N = -100dB and SNR = 109dB.

Wireless charging solution for AR glasses

Charging AR or smart glasses is not a trivial task. The unique form factor of these products often prohibits the use of a standard charging port, necessitating an obtrusive proprietary cable connector. AKM has partnered with Humavox and developed two new devices to implement RF power transmission and reception, enabling efficient power transfer and a much more convenient user experience.

Motion tracking demo for the enterprise market


AKM’s newest high-precision magnetic sensor is making waves across the industry, from magnetic position tracking (VR/AR/MR), non-destructive flaw detection (MFL), wearables, and IoT to the connected home. The AK09940 features ultra-low noise (40nT/rms) and ultra-low power consumption (40uA @ 100Hz). High speed ODR is achieved at 400Hz (continuous mode) and 1kHz (single- measurement mode), with each axis capable of +/- 1200uT.

Creating a Digital Crown for a Smartwatch using One Magnetic Sensor


The rapidly increasing popularity of smart watches has made the digital crown an essential part of user interface design. AKM, the world’s number one supplier of eCompasses, is proposing the AK09970D as a new Digital Crown Sensor which promises to be smaller and less expensive than the optical-based solutions currently on the market.

High Accuracy Angle sensors


AKM has developed a 14-bit, better than ±0.1° angle accuracy, absolute Magnetic Rotation Angle Sensor that supports Off-Axis configuration for easy adoption into your current systems or complex designs where motor shaft end detection is not possible.
