The World’s Smallest Bluetooth Chip from EM Microelectronic
Now Available from CDI


EM Microelectronic introduces the EM9304 a tiny, low-power, integrated circuit (IC) optimized for Bluetooth® v4.2 low energy enabled products. The flexible architecture of the EM9304 allows it to act as a companion IC to any ASIC or MCU-based product, or as a complete System-on-Chip (SoC).

Custom applications can execute from one-time-programmable (OTP) memory and digital peripherals (SPI or I2C) can be used to interface with external devices such as sensors, memory, display, or touch drivers. A floating-point unit can be exploited to implement advanced algorithms such as sensor fusion.
EM9304 Features Include:
  • The smallest Bluetooth chip on the market. The ultra-miniaturization of electronic components is crucial for the densification of functions in portable electronic devices and for the Internet of Things.
  • It has the lowest energy consumption – compared to its competitors – for different scenarios of use, thus increasing the autonomy of connected objects, an essential factor in this field.
  • Its high-speed start-up capability is unparalleled, which makes it possible to improve the reactivity and the lifetime of, for example, electronic beacons.
Typical Applications:
• Beacons • Wearables • Sports Equipment • Remote Sensing
• Home Automation • Toys • Healthcare Monitoring
• Motion and Tracking Devices • Light Control Applications
• Wireless Mice and Keyboards • Alarms and Security System
