Atmel Corporation announced production availability of a next generation low frequency (LF) RFID transponder device, ideal for consumer and industrial identification applications.
The new Atmel ATA5577M1330C-PP supports applications including building access control systems, industrial automation, consumer and industrial segments, and as tokens, key fobs or transponders, this new device offers the ability to develop more flexible, high performance tag devices.
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. By eliminating the need to open the transponder for tuning, the on-chip AFE register helps simplify the design and production process significantly.
The transponder is available in a standard lead-free zero-pin 12mm x 5.9mm x 3mm brick package, which is also used by other Atmel IDIC family members. The package molding makes the transponder robust so that it can be used in rugged environments, including underwater, on metal or in dirt.
