IoT Sensor Nodes

Bluetooth® Low Energy transmission IC

The AK1595A and AK1595B Bluetooth® transmission IC of Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) can transmit sensor data with low power consumption, making it suitable for environmental monitoring such as temperature, humidity, air quality, etc. in IoT sensor nodes, which are required to be compact and lightweight.

Furthermore, by combining with AKM's energy harvesting IC, which features ultra-low power consumption, the IoT sensor node can be used to construct an environmental monitoring system that can operate without batteries by utilizing minute amounts of power from indoor photovoltaics and thermal power generation.

Module board for service study combining sensors

AKM offers a module board with the AK1595A / AK1595B and its peripheral circuits such as matching circuits, crystal oscillator, and antenna. By mounting the module on a main board equipped with a familiar microcontroller or any sensors, you can start PoC using Bluetooth® without having to adjust the wireless section.

AKM sells this module board as a sample for evaluation. For customers who wish to receive this product in mass-supply, please contact us for introduction of third-party products.
