Rutronik Presents Dual-Interface EEPROM from STMicroelectronics


Rutronik at electronica: Hall A5, booth 159 & 260

The new dual-interface EEPROM from STMicroelectronics provides the flexibility to remotely program or update electronic products, anytime during their lifetime, and anywhere in the supply chain. It enables manufacturers to update parameters, regionalize or activate software without a programmer or opening the retail packaging. The EEPROM is available at distributor Rutronik now. The M24LR64 is an EEPROM memory with a standard I2C serial interface, and a standard ISO15693 RF (radio frequency) interface. No power is required to operate the M24LR64 in RF mode, which enables on-board energy savings and provides easy and convenient remote access to electronic product parameters. The EEPROM is compatible with existing RFID equipment, thereby delivering a wide range of solutions and an accessible technology to product manufacturers. The M24LR64 has a 64-Kbit capacity for storage of program code, product parameters, serial numbers, calibration data, or event-log data. Its RF ISO15693 interface can be accessed by a wide range of RF readers, covering hand-held devices, pad antennas, gate systems and tunnel readers.
