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

NXP GoldVIP: Integration Platform for Intelligent Connected Vehicles

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP Semiconductors

Today’s intelligent connected vehicle designs are smarter and safer than ever before and this has a lot to do with a rapidly increasing technological convergence of sensors, machine learning, over the air updates, in-vehicle high bandwidth networking and more. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Brian Carlson from NXP about NXP’s new GoldVIP Platform. They examine the benefits that this kind of software integration platform can bring to automotive designs and how you can take a test drive of the GoldVIP for yourself.
