Elatec RFID Systems, a specialist in developing RFID reader and writer systems, has introduced a new compact module: TWN4 MultiTech Nano.
The RFID/NFC reader unit supports all of the common RFID technologies for 125 kHz, 134.2 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequencies and measures a mere 31 x 17.8 x 2.5 mm. With the components mounted to one side, it facilitates easy placement on the main circuit board. A version with pins already soldered is also offered for quicker implementation.
Due to its minimal size, variety of external antennae options and expanded temperature range, TWN4 MultiTech Nano is particularly well suited for industrial and mobile applications. Elatec can provide reference plans for the antenna design and design kits upon request. This RFID reader is NFC capable, making it a strong choice for applications that involve communication with smartphones. An EMVCo certification for payment applications can be obtained optionally. TWN4 MultiTech Nano is the latest addition to the TWN4 MultiTech range of multi-frequency/multi-standard RFID modules.
