Amtech tag lets RFID ride the rails Teardown 7/24/2006 Post a comment
North of Austin is a piece of Old Texas where two railroad lines and a 120-year-old lime factory converge. During a recent train-spotting stop, I found a curious little box trackside and recognized it as an asset-tracking badge that had somehow gotten detached from a passing railcar. That meant electronics within--and a teardown waiting to happen.
