YPRES, France, March 10, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Melexis, an early and innovative semiconductor player in the RFID market, and ProximaRF, a provider of versatile HF reader solutions, join their forces to enable fast and easy development of Data Logging applications. The RFID Sensor Kit (DVK90129) will help implementation of RFID technology in applications such as cold chain management, industrial data logger or medical monitoring devices. The product will be presented at HDMA 2010, in Baltimore on Monday March 15 at the ProximaRF booth (217).
The RFID sensor kit (DVK90129) demonstrates the MLX90129, a contactless sensing system on a chip which embeds a versatile sensor interface, internal temperature sensor, data storage memory and an ISO/IEC15693 RFID tag front end. The MLX90129 was previously introduced during the Sensor + Test exhibition in Nuremberg last May. The RFID Sensor Kit is composed of an evaluation board featuring the MLX90129, the plug and play Proxima RF desktop reader (FCC certified), its interface software and API together with the related licenses.
"For many years, we focus on providing RFID turnkey solutions for high end application, like readers for anti counterfeiting and module for handheld computers" said Terry Rachwalski, VP, Business Development of Proxima RF. "The Melexis Sensor Tag IC embeds the majority of the requested features and functions used in cold chain monitoring applications. With the RFID sensor kit, we will enable integrators to quickly develop and propose effective solutions for temperature monitoring to the supply chain actors."
Gilles Cerede, Product Line Manager at Melexis comments: "When we started to introduce the MLX90129 on the market, we anticipated two questions from our customers: What about the reader? What about the system integration? With the Proxima RF reader, we give the developers the insurance that beside the compatibility of the MLX90129 with the ISO15692 international RFID standard, it is supported by certified readers available "off the shelves". The user friendly software and flexible API allows a fast and easy interface to an existing implementation."
The RFID Sensor Kit (DVK90129) is available now through both Melexis and Proxima RF sales channels
