Atmel Next-Generation LF RFID Transponder Provides Maximum Flexibility for Consumer and Industrial Identification Applications

Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) today announced production availability of a low-frequency (LF) RFID transponder device, the Atmel ATA5577M1330C-PP. Ideal for applications in building access control systems, industrial automation, consumer and industrial segments, and as tokens, key fobs or transponders, this new device offers designers the ability to develop more flexible, high-performance tag devices. The Atmel ATA5577M1330C-PP enhances the Atmel LF RFID portfolio with a stand-alone, fully functional tag that includes an antenna coil trimmed to an operating frequency of 125kHz.

The new device provides the highest flexibility for universal use, which is a key market requirement. The new Atmel RFID device provides a broad range of data rates from RF/2 to RF/128 (64kBit/s to 1kBit/s at 125kHz), modulation and a variety of coding schemes including ASK, FSK, PSK, Manchester, Bi-phase and NRZ. The Atmel-patented digital Analog Frontend Register (AFE) enables the chip's analog front end circuitry to adapt to the transponder and reader system for maximum performance. The ATA5577M1330C-PP is the only device on the market where the analog behavior can be tuned in a closed and sealed transponder for increased performance. By eliminating the need to open the transponder for tuning, the on-chip AFE register helps simplify the design and production process significantly.

The new transponder is available in a standard lead-free zero-pin brick package, which is also used by other Atmel IDIC® family members. The package molding makes the transponder very robust so that it can be used in rugged environments that are challenging for competing RFID devices, including underwater, on metal or in dirt

The on-chip memory contains an Atmel-pre-programmed unique ID (UID) in two additional memory blocks. These locked blocks guarantee a unique, worldwide traceable Atmel number consisting of the Atmel lot number, wafer lot and sequential die number. This makes the device well suited for use in applications that only require a low, basic level of security, while at the same time ensuring compatibility with all kinds of existing RFID systems. The ISO11784/ ISO11785 code structure, along with the de-facto-standard-unique format, can be configured according to the requirements of specific 125kHz applications.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies
