ultralowpowe

by Hanne Degans @ phys.org:

At this week’s IEDM 2014, held in San Francisco, California, nanoelectronics research center imec demonstrated an ultra-low power RFID transponder chip. Operating at sub 1V voltage and realized in thin-film transistor technology (TFTs) on plastic film, the chip paves the way for universal sensing applications, such as item level RFID tagging, body area networks (BAN) and environmental monitoring, that require prolonged remote autonomy, and ultimate thinness, flexibility and robustness.

One of the major drivers of the semiconductor industry is the Internet of Things (IoT). Market studies envision a society where billions of autonomous sensor nodes are seamlessly integrated into objects, in the environment and on human bodies, operating independently for months, interacting with each other and connecting to the internet. This IoT is expected to improve and enhance daily-lives through smart houses and smart cars, personal health monitoring and much more.

mit_gas_detecting_sensor

by Nick Lavars:

While the stench of rotting food would cause you to stop from chowing down, chances are it became unfit for consumption some time before those funky aromas wafted through your nostrils. Chemists at MIT have been working on a wireless, inexpensive sensor that, among other things, identifies spoiled food early by detecting gases in the air. It then shares its data with a smartphone, potentially alerting users to that soon-to-be moldy fruit in the bottom of the fridge.

RFID keyboard emulators are able to significantly simplify tracking of goods.

“Replacement” of a keyboard in a form of an RFID module connected to a USB port works very simply – UID of every tag, which will appear in its range will send to a computer – the same way as if we typed it in by a keyboard. SL040A also enables to choose, whether we want the reader to send only data, or also a „CR“ character after every UID (as if an Enter key was hit). It means, that if we already have a software to type in open (for example Excel), the reader itself will fill the cell with data and move the cursor to another cell. SL040A is even able to read data (not only UID) from Mifare tags.

SL040A is also interesting by one feature – on a request from our company SOS electronic, the producer started to produce also the black version SL040A black. Thanks to the above-standard close relationship with the producers, we´re able to supply you even various special customized versions.
Detailed information will provide you the SL040A user manual.

accesscontrol

An Arduino-based RFID access control to open garage door using RFID by Jason Hamilton:

This is my Arduino-based project that allows you to use RFID for access control to open a door. The door can be anything that can be controlled by a relay. In my case it will be a garage door opener.
This is the initial prototype. Next I plan to build it on a prototype shield and then if put it on a PCB. The top section of components (Arduino and breadboard) will be placed inside the garage and the bottom section of components (LED, buzzer, NFC/RFID reader) will be placed outside (in a project box).

New version of a favorite RFID module ID12LA will enable you to implement RFID into your device even more easily thanks to a wide range of supply voltage.

Literally “globally known” with an integrated antenna – ID12 and its familiar like for example ID2 or ID20 have earned a big popularity thanks to a flawless usage and reliability. Perhaps the only disadvantage of this module was narrow range of operating supply voltage, what in praxis enabled only usage of 5V DC. New version – ID12LA solves also this small drawback and the new module works in a range of 2.8-5VDC. This also enable their usage even with a 3.3V logic and for example in battery operated devices (3-4x NiMH, or 1x Lithium cell, …) without necessity of DC converters or a precise voltage regulation.

The module ID12LA (range approx. 12cm), as well as ID20LA (range approx.16cm) are in our stable stock offer, similarly also the Mifare version (13,56 MHz) – ID20MFIA. In case, that you prefer the maximum range, it´s possible to use module ID2 supplied with an external antenna (range up to 30 cm).

Detailed information will provide you datasheets at particular types below the article.

Admittance control, movement of goods, tickets for various cultural events and sport matches, travel tickets, parking,… thanks to a permanently lower price and bigger possibilities of RFID cards (tags) the Mifare system (13,56 Mhz) in various variations runs forward even to segment where an older 125 kHz system didn´t suite. Complete RFID solution for a very affordable price, it is a short summary of RFID modules features from company Stronglink, which we already introduced to you in several articles.

Group of modules SL03x – SL030, SL031 and SL032 represents complete OEM RFID modules with antenna integrated on a PCB, intended to be built into an end device. All these three modules support Mifare Mini, Mifare 1k, Mifare 4k, Mifare Plus and Mifare Ultralight. SL032 further supports also the DESFire protocol. SL030 has an I2C communication interface, while the SL031 and SL032 have a UART. Modules are controlled by a set of simple commands, thus an integration into a device should cause no troubles even to less-experienced developers.

Closer information will provide you the SL030, SL031 and SL032 user manuals, as well as AN100721, AN101203 and AN110221 application notes.

Thanks to a close cooperation with a producer, we aim to keep a sufficient amount of STRONGLINK RFID modules in stock.

SL030 module communicates through favorite I2C interface and supports a wide scale of secure RFID technologies on the frequency of 13.56 MHz. 

RFID modules Stronglink provide an excellent quality for an unbeatable price, that´s why from now you can find in our store another member of readers/ writers SL0xx module SL030. In many ways is the SL030 similar to other readers of the SL0xx family (especially SL031), which were introduced to you in the article „Stronglink modules will provide you a highly secure RFID”.

SL 030 supports the most of known RFID protocols on the frequency of 13.56 MHz like MIFARE 1k, MIFARE 4k, MIFARE Ultralight as well as NFC NTAG203. Built-in antenna and automatic detection of tags significantly simplify usage of the module. Also positive is the fact, that despite a 3V power supply, the outputs are 5V tolerant, thus combination with a 5V logic should be trouble free. SL030 contain besides an I2C communication interface also a direct output (OUT pin) indicating presence of RFID tag in a reach.   SL030 can be set up to 4 different I2C addresses (1010000-1010011) by means jumpers JP1 and JP2. The communication itself runs in a standard form usual for an I2C bus. Commands (from a  Host microcontroller of your application) are sent in a form of „Start+Address+Data_Length+Command+Data+Stop“. Overview of available commands is displayed in a Table no. 3. Result of operation is sent back from SL030 through I2C in a form of Command+Status+Data. Byte „Status“ indicates result of operation (Success/Fail,…) – table no. 4. Overview of possible statuses is summarized in section 4-3.

Detailed information will provide you the SL030 datasheet and examples of source codes ARM, AVR, MCS51, MSP430 a PIC.
Upon request we´re able to provide you any other Stronglink type within few days. In case of interest please contact us at info@soselectronic.com.

SL030 recognizes Mifare and NFC too – [Link]
