Sensor-enabled RFID tags extend wireless data-logging beyond ID

ams AG has introduced next-generation sensor-enabled RFID tags which claim to offer 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. The devices include an on-board temperature sensor, an Interface to an external sensor, and can operate in passive (batteryless) mode. In this mode, the tag harvests energy from a reader’s broadcast, using the power to read the temperature or data from an external sensor, and transmits the information back to ...
