A subset of RFID, near-field communication (NFC) appears poised to expand beyond mobile phones to automotive applications.
Researchers have found a way to give RFID tags the ability to sense their environment, in a huge step towards mass-manufacturing smart devices that do not use batteries or require charging.
STMicroelectronics' ST25 near-field communication (NFC) tags have been certified by the NFC Forum, a key industry and standardisation body.
NFC (near-field communication) is all about enabling the vision of connecting the IoT in an easy, cost-effective manner.
Richardson RFPD has received an award from DAIHEN Corporation at the company's annual supplier meeting — the first time the company has ever presented an award to a distributor.
The NFC Ferrite Tag, from Securitag Assembly Group (SAG), uses STMicroelectronics' ST25 NFC tag IC for IoT (Internet of Things) data transmission applications.
Researchers at Texas Instruments and MIT have developed a new type of RFID chip that is "virtually impossible to hack".
Libelium has added long-range wireless coverage to its Waspmote sensor nodes by integrating Semtech's LoRa RF technology in a module-on-a-chip embedded radio design for smart cities and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments.
Technology disrupters or paradigm shifts often pose serious threats to existing technology, but also open entirely new opportunities to those that recognise and espouse them. Bob Hult examines the drivers and the results when wireless connectivity cuts the cord.
The HARTING Ha-VIS RFID VT 86 (HT) transponder was designed for the aviation industry, meaning it can be deployed worldwide. Product features include robustness, temperature resistance, high protection class and performance in difficult environments.
Turck announces the Q80L800 HF read/write head, the latest addition to the company's RFID portfolio. With a sensing range of 800 mm, the product is suitable for close and medium HF applications such as conveyor applications.
The Ha-VIS RF-R200 RFID reader has been added to HARTING’s auto-ID solution range. The RFID reader is a mid-range reader, ie, it has been optimised for read ranges up to 2 m.
Step Global has available a range of embedded RFID readers from ThingMagic.
Many IT administrators are unaware of the current use levels of their server racks and IT infrastructure. This article explains how RFID technology can improve the security and efficiency of data centres.
IEI’s advanced ultra-high frequency reader, the MODAT-335, features an optional ultra-high frequency read, a technology that is becoming increasingly popular for solving difficult RFID problems and meeting business needs across industries.
