The K-ID2 chip is designed expressly for dedicated beacon or CW identifier applications. It is very flexible and has the advantage of a very large message storage bank (512 bytes) which is non-volatile. Embedded delays and key down events are supported along with QRSS operation.
It is implemented in a 12F629 flash based PIC which supports ultra low power operation. We offer a PC board and parts kit that will help you get a beacon going with minimal effort. Note the PC board is designed to support both the 8 pin KID2 and also the 14 pin KID3 which will be available December 2017.
