Sensor-enabled RFID Tags Extend Wireless Data-logging Beyond Identification
ams (Unterpremstaetten, Austria) has announced next-generation sensor-enabled RFID tags offering breakthroughs for medical, automotive safety and other applications where temperature, physiological or environmental data is required. The new devices, the SL13A and SL900A enable a simple, low-cost implementation of a new class of wireless data-logging applications. The SL13A is an ISO15693-compliant tag for use with near field communications (NFC-V) and high-frequency radio-frequency identification (HF RFID) readers. The SL900A is an EPC Gen 2 Class 3 tag for use with RFID readers. Features include:
- On-board temperature sensor.
- Interface to an external sensor.
- Capability of operating in passive (batteryless) mode.
