AK1594 Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) Transmitter

AKM’s low-power transmitter only IC (beacon) requires no microcontroller

Image of AKM Semiconductor AK1594 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) TransmitterAKM’s AK1594 is a low-power transmitter only IC (beacon) supporting Bluetooth 4.2 that does not need a microcontroller. Beacons are often used in applications such as loss prevention, employee attendance, information guidance, and monitoring systems. Because this low-power IC requires no microcontroller, it provides longer battery life and can be easier to design-in versus a standard Bluetooth solution, creating Bluetooth beacon systems quickly.

  • No program development or microcontroller necessary
  • Security with AES-128 hardware encryptions
  • Ultra-low power consumption
  • Achieves 9.1 μA (typ.)
