RFID transponder uses 8kB FRAM technology for memory-intensive applications

HID Global : 13 August, 2014  (New Product)
HID Global's Identification Technologies division is shipping the IN Tag 300 8kB RFID transponder, which is ideal for memory intensive applications. The device incorporates ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) technology from Fujitsu Semiconductor. This accelerates data access close to the maximum high frequency (HF) speed; endures billions of read and write cycles; and withstands gamma radiation up to 50kGray to survive medical sterilization processes.

With FRAM – providing write cycles up to 33,000-times faster than conventional EEPROM memories – the latest IN Tag transponder enables much faster accesses than EEPROM memory-based tags. The FRAM technology also allows approximately a million times more write cycles than EEPROM, making it ideal for applications with fast moving targets and frequent write accesses, such as sensoring or data logging.


 


The proven IN Tag housings protect the integrated chips from exposure to high-temperature and high-pressure conditions, and the FRAM configuration shields contents from irradiation that would wipe the contents of other chips.


 


The IN Tag 300 8KB transponder is ideal for tagging medical supplies and equipment subject to sterilization via autoclave, gamma ray and X-ray irradiation. Temperature and pressure resistance also makes the tag a perfect fit for industrial applications such as manufacturing lines operating in harsh environments.


 


As with all IN Tag passive contactless RFID transponders, the IN Tag 300 8KB is highly water, chemical and shock resistant, ATEX certified for use in explosive environments, they withstand peak temperatures up to 140C and are UL94-HB flame resistant, as well as compatible with food contact. FRAM products with 2kB memory are available from HID Global in IN Tag or Piccolino e-unit form-factors for less memory-intense applications.


 


 “The new IN Tag 300 8KB delivers the optimum in speed and memory size for the ISO/IEC 15693 protocol,” said Richard Aufreiter, director of product management, Identification Technologies with HID Global. “This and the radiation resistance make the tag ideal for demanding automation, medical or nuclear applications.”


 


“We are excited that HID Global is integrating our new high-memory HF FRAM chip into the IN Tag 300 8KB,” said Jozsef Miho, product marketing manager for Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe. “The new  8kB chip is ideal for memory-hungry applications and we are pleased to see HID Global among the first vendors to produce industrial strength RFID tags utilizing our chip.”
