COLORADO SPRINGS, ColoradoEM Microelectronic introduced the EM4094, an analog front-end integrated circuit for 13.56MHz RFID readers. This IC was designed to accommodate a wide range of microcontrollers and multiple communication protocols. It is well suited for use in low-cost or handheld reader solutions. In addition to the IC, EM Microelectronic also introduced the EMDB408 13.56MHz RFID Demonstration Reader as a reference design and development tool kit.
The EM4094 can be operated between +3.0 to +5.0VDC supply voltage with output power up to 200mW. It integrates an 848kHz BPSK decoder which allows the reader manufacturer to select a cost effective microcontroller. The IC can be used in a range of reader systems with sub-carrier frequencies between 212 and 848kHz. It covers the ISO14443 A and B, Sony FeliCa or ISO15693 standards and operates with NFC devices.
The EM4094 RFID Demonstration Reader reference design is a 13.56MHz RFID reader that is compliant with the ISO14443 type A and B, Sony FeliCa and the ISO15693 standards supporting all mandatory commands. The demo reader also supports mandatory, optional, custom and proprietary commands of EM Microelectronic's transponder ICs: the EM4034, EM4035, EM4135, and the EM4006 read-only IC. The development tool kit serves as a reference design for reader manufacturers; it comes with a fully functional reader, +7.5V AC/DC power supply, EM4034 and EM4035 tags in credit card format, a SIM card with cryptographic functions, USB cable and CD ROM.
Both the EM4094 IC and EMDB408 RFID demo reader are available now. Pricing for the EM4094 starts at $2.65 each in quantities of 1000 pieces. Click here for the data sheet.
