Murata and Beta LAYOUT announced a joint venture to launch an RFID starter kit aimed at printed circuit board (PCB) engineers and developers aspiring to incorporate RFID into their electronics design.
Based on Murata MAGICSTRAP ultra-high frequency passive RFID technology, the starter kit comprises a reader/writer board, communication software, two reader antennas and four distinguishable MAGICSTRAP RFID tag modules.
A loop antenna is provided for use in hidden applications such as for anti-counterfeiting and brand protection. The solution supports communication over short distances for individual tag connections as well as bulk reading of MAGICSTRAP based PCB tags in logistics operations.
Typical applications for MAGICSTRAP RFID include any type of electronics application such as mobile phones, industrial control, consumer electronics and test & measure equipment.
