ANDY100 – RFID tag chips that supply and communicate with external sensors

ANDY100 - RFID tag chips

RFID tag chips for external sensors and actuators

ANDY100 RFID tag chips work as a passive RFID chip but are able to supply and communicate with external sensors without the need for batteries.

The device features a master SPI port for communication with external devices and power outputs for driving those external devices from the energy harvested from the UHF RF field.

The tag is compatible with EPC C1G2 RFID commercial readers. No custom hardware or custom commands are required.

The ANDY100 is ideal for developing battery-free devices such as sensors, actuators or displays. These devices will help in asset or process monitoring applications as they provide a unique identification number plus data from the associated sensor without the need for batteries.
