关于 Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation 查看所有产品
Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation is a leading manufacturer of advanced sensing devices and analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs). Established in 1980, the firm is a subsidiary of the Asahi Kasei Group. Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, the company serves its clients with offices in China, Taiwan, South Korea, Germany, Sweden, and the United States.
AKM designs, develops, and produces products for the automotive, audio, renewable energy, telecom, industrial, personal electronics, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart home markets.
The firm’s portfolio features audio ICs, rotary encoders, power management devices, electronic compasses, video decoders, and clock generators. The company also offers a robust selection of gas, current, human, and tri-axis magnetic sensors.
Over the course of 40 years, AKM became a player in the worldwide semiconductor industry because it is always looking forward. Upon its founding as Miyazaki Electronics Co., Ltd., the firm initially specialized in Hall-effect sensors. But it quickly branched out by focusing its research and development efforts on the wider IC field.
The company’s passion for innovation enabled it to build up a large international customer base and a global footprint. Today, AKM makes cutting-edge components that power nascent technologies like connected infrastructure, smart cars, and millimeter wave-based data transmission.
Recently, the firm expanded its lineup with the groundbreaking AP4405AEN current consumption voltage detector. The IC features a build-in voltage detection circuit, N-MOSFET, P-MOSFET, and on/off functionality in a tiny 16-pin HWQFN package. In addition, the component typically only requires 10nA of power.
Available in six different voltage detection varieties, the AP4405AEN is an ideal charging monitor for electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) and lithium-ion capacitors (LICs). The line's size, versatility, and capability also make it an excellent power controller for energy harvesting devices.
Whatever technological advances manufacturers devise in the future, AKM will be there to supply them with first-rate components.
