STMicroelectronics Powers Creative NFC Applications with Dynamic Message Content and Anti-Tamper in New Type-5 Tags

Geneva, January 25, 2021 – Uniquely combining NFC Type-5 properties with augmented NDEF (NFC Data Exchange Format) and tamper detection, STMicroelectronics’ ST25TV512C and ST25TV02KC tags let developers leverage NFC contactless communication in new and imaginative ways for applications in consumer engagement, brand recognition, supply-chain management, and access control.

The ISO/IEC 15693-compliant NFC Type-5 tags[1] respond both to smartphones and 13.56MHz long-range RFID readers and allow native exchange of NDEF messages without a mobile app. Moreover, Augmented NDEF allows dynamically updated information such as tamper status or a personalized URL to be added to NDEF messages. Up to six different attributes can be configured to append to the message including a Unique Tap Code (UTC) that makes messages unique and dynamic at each tap of the tag.

With the added benefit of tamper detection in the ST25TV02KC-T variant, use cases that need to verify the integrity of assets can leverage the enhanced flexibility of Augmented NDEF communication. All devices feature state-of-the-art protection services, which include a 64-bit encrypted password with failed-attempt counter for data safety, TruST25™ digital-signature services to verify die authenticity, and untraceable and kill modes to protect user privacy.

Developers working with the ST25TV512C and ST25TV02KC tags can deliver high-quality solutions to market quickly, taking advantage of ST’s established ST25 ecosystem that includes extensive software libraries, example applications, and reference implementations.

Building on ST’s experience in NFC technology, the tags deliver advantages such as extended communication range with superior reliability. In addition, retaining the same chip capacitance as the previous product generation helps to simplify the design of the antenna. The tags operate from -40°C to 85°C and integrate a configurable EEPROM with 60-year data retention, which is the highest value available among major NFC suppliers.

The ST25TV512C (ST25TV512C-AFG3) and ST25TV02KC (ST25TV02KC-TFG3 & ST25TV02KC-AFG3) are available as sawn and bumped wafer or packaged in UFDFPN5. Pricing starts from $0.08 for the ST25TV02KC-AFG3, for orders of 1000 pieces.

Use Configurable Digital IO To Give Your Industrial Controller the Edge

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

As factories get bigger, centralized industrial process control has become difficult to manage. While there have been attempts to simplify the task, it remains unwieldy. In this design solution, we briefly review the centralized approach before looking at what potential changes edge computing will bring to the factory floor. We also show a digital IO IC that allows for smaller, more adaptable programmable logic controllers (PLCs) more suited to this developing architecture.

Thermocouple Temperature Sensor Solution

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

When it comes to temperature monitoring and management, industrial applications can be extremely demanding. With temperatures that can range from 270 to 3000 C, consumer-grade temperature probes just don’t cut it. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ezana Haile of Microchip technology about using thermocouples for temperature monitoring in industrial applications.
