IDS Microchip has began shipping first production parts of its new EPC Gen2 compliant RFID sensory tag chip, the SL900A.
Available in 16-LD QFN or as dice on wafer, the SL900A enables applications such as supply and cold chain with dynamic shelf life monitoring, tracking history and condition of constructions, controlling and recording of medication, process control in factory automation, and remote metering and supervision.
This single-chip can automatically track, monitor, time-stamp and record sensory information, which typically include temperature, pressure, humidity and vibration. It also can be configured to automatically execute an alarm or notification when critical conditions occur.
This event-driven capability enables various applications in the cold chain, pharmaceutical, and food and health industries, as well as applications in the construction industry, and makes it possible to determine the conditions of materials used, in an economical, non-invasive and practical way.
