Jumpstart IoT Application Designs with NFC Discovery Kit from STMicroelectronics

Geneva, February 13, 2014 – At Embedded World 2014, STMicroelectronics will unveil an easy-access development platform for its M24SR dynamic NFC tags that are now entering volume production in all memory densities and package options. Accelerating the design of IoT applications, ST’s M24SR Discovery Kit contains everything engineers need to start adding NFC connectivity to any kind of electrical device, from fitness watches and loudspeakers to washing machines and water meters.

Expanding ST’s NFC portfolio, ST’s M24SR dynamic tags combine industry-standard serial-bus (I2C) and contactless RF (NFC Forum Tag Type 4) interfaces. The devices support the NFC data exchange format (NDEF) and 128-bit password protection.  The M24SR series is available in EEPROM memory densities from 2 Kbit to 64 Kbit and three package types: SO8, TSSOP8, and UFDFPN8.

Jumpstarting the development of connected Consumer, Domestic, and Industrial equipment, the M24SR Discovery Kit illustrates NFC use cases such as “tap and pair,” URL connection, send an SMS or an email, and business-card download. The kit integrates a Dynamic NFC/RFID tag (M24SR64-Y), an STM32F1 microcontroller, a 13.56 MHz antenna, an LCD color screen, a USB connector, a JTAG connector, and a joystick for menu selection. The Premium version adds a Bluetooth module with audio outputs and a headset to demonstrate convenient Bluetooth pairing of a smartphone and an audio device with the M24SR.

In addition to the Discovery Kit, the comprehensive M24SR development ecosystem also includes antenna reference designs, application notes, e2e community, eDesignSuite, reference MCU drivers, and an NFC Android App.

STMicroelectronics will distribute a limited number of free M24SR Discovery Kits at the ST Booth at Embedded World Hall 4-160. To qualify for a free kit, subject to availability, please pre-register at http://www.st.com/web/en/support/m24sr_ew14_registration.html

Choose a high CMTI gate driver that cuts your SiC switch dead-time

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

As GaN and SiC FETs begin to replace MOSFET and IGBT technologies in power switching applications, this Maxim paper discusses the key considerations when selecting an isolated gate driver. The paper explains the importance of CMTI and propagation delay skew and presents an isolated gate driver IC ideal for use with these new power transistors.

Flexible Power for a Smart World

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and CUI Inc.

Safety, EMC compliance, your project schedule, and your BOM cost are all important factors when you are considering what power supply you will need for your next design. You also need to think about form factor, which capacitor will work best, and more. But if you’re not a power supply expert, this can get overwhelming in a hurry. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ron Stull from CUI Inc. about CUI PBO Single Output Board Mount AC-DC Power Supplies, what this ??ac/dc core brings to the table in terms of form factor, reliability and performance, and why this kind of solution may give you the flexibility you need to optimize your next design.
