The demo shows the NXP Beacon implementation running on Kinetis KW40 Wireless SoC. 
At the start-up the FRDM-KW40Z board starts sending advertisements packets each ~2 seconds and the BLE beacons are captured from the NXP Smartphone app that implements Bluetooth Beacons profile.

A Beacon is a non-connectable device that uses Bluetooth Smart technology to broadcast packets that include identifying information and each packet receives the name of Advertising Packet:
Enabling the next generation of proximity tags and indoor positioning.

Multiple use cases: localization, navigation information, indoor tracking, mobile marketing.

FEATURES
  • Ultra-low-power single-chip solution that enabled Bluetooth Smart/ Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) v4.1
  • Integrated security modules such as AES-128 Accelerator (AESA) and True Random Number Generator (TRNG)
  • Fast encryption/decryption for network commissioning and transmissions of supported protocols
  • Integrated buck-boost DC/DC converter, supporting a wide range of operating voltages from 0.9 V to 4.2 V, significantly reducing the peak current in the receive mode down to 6.5 mA and transmit down to 8.4 mA.
