This 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.
The K-ID2 replaces the K-ID part, we changed the design over to a 12F1510 flash based PIC which supports ultra low power operation.
