If you have purchased the EM Microelectronic EMBC02 proximity sensor, Component Distributors wants to pass on to you that EM Microelectronic is officially announcing the End of Life (EOL) for the EMBC02 (full part number EMBC02-F403-H1000) from its product offering.
Component Distributors currently has about 250 pcs in stock, and the last time to purchase the product will be June 15, 2018. After this date the EMBC02 will only be sold until all inventory is gone.
However, the replacement part is the next generation Proximity Beacon from EM Microelectronic, which is the EMBC22-F001-H1000 and is similar to the previous generation. The EMBC22 comes in a simple, easy to use coin shape housing, but is now powered by the EM9304, which is the world’s lowest power Bluetooth IC.
Other Key Features Are:
• More than 2x longer life from a CR2032 battery
• More than 2x longer range (up to 250m LOS)
• Over-the-air configurability
• Modular RF certification
• Optional connector for additional sensors or an alternate power source
The new device will not be available unit Mid-July of 2018.
