Read switch settings via RFID X32 is a battery-free RFID multiple switch monitor tag that allows for a fast and automated connected/disconnected check of up to 32 switches. It transmits a unique identifier and the status of up to 32 switches to a commercial EPC C1G2 reader without the need of a battery on the sensor tag. The X32 has a 96 bits EPC number, a 32 bit TID and a password-protected Kill command. The tag comes in a variety of antenna designs and sizes to adapt the performance to the required application in the 860-960 MHz band. The reading distance for the battery free switch monitor tag is around 1.5 meters and it can be embedded in a wide variety of materials such as plastics or concrete. They can be encapsulated in an IP67 or IP68 casing for usage in harsh environments. Farsens www.farsens.com Welcome to Planet e. The entire embedded universe at a single location!

Freescale claims that in contrast to some competing products that restrict customisation, its new offerings allow design innovation and enable the rapid development of differentiated wireless charging systems. Flexibility is provided through a programming interface that places control of the end-solution in the product developer’s hands. Freescale’s customisable automotive solution consists of a Qi-certified transmit controller IC and accompanying reference design. The programming interface allows systems designers to address critical, auto-specific issues such as avoiding key fob and car radio interference. The entry-level device, MWCT1001A, provides a comprehensive and costeffective multi-coil wireless charging transmit solution, while MWCT1003A is the premium option providing more feature-rich capabilities. Integrating technologies such as Near Field Communication (NFC), multi-standard support, or CAN technology is achieved using MWCT1003A. The auto-focused ICs meet AEC-Q100 requirements and support any 5W coil topology. Freescale www.freescale.com www.electronics-eetimes.com Electronic Engineering Times Europe October 2014 41
