Adeunis-RF and Avnet Memec Introduce a NFC “reader-writer” smart module
Poing, Germany, 2 April 2012 – Avnet Memec, a leading technology, marketing, distribution and services company, has partnered with Adeunis-RF, to launch a new range of compact, reliable, modular and affordable Near Field Communications (NFC) solutions to address the growing need for eCommerce applications.
The new NFC “Reader-Writer” module will streamline the design and development of devices dedicated to contactless payment, ticketing, couponing and access control. Operating as an NFC gateway, the module provides a secure carrier field through ID and protocol recognition. The modular concept allows for multiple designs with the module mounted inside or outside the antenna.
"In the booming market of contactless devices, designers who need to integrate NFC functionalities into their application often need quick market access. By providing a robust, reliable, multi-format modular solution we are able to reduce their time to market as well as their cost of design," said Hervé Vincent, CEO of Adeunis-RF. “Our partnership with Avnet Memec enables us to combine technical support with commercial coverage for customers across Europe."
Based on a dedicated Renesas MCU, the Adeunis-RF module operates at 13.56MHz. The “Reader-Writer” module incorporates Type A, B, F and RFID modes at rates ranging from 1.65 to 26.48 kbits/s (RFID) and 106 to 847 kbits/s (type A, B, F tags).
