The MB89R112, chip for high-frequency RFID tags from Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia Pte Ltd includes 9KB of FRAM storage, the largest density available in an RFID chip operating in the HF band as defined in ISO/IEC15693. It also features a serial interface SPI that opens up new possibilities for RFID in the embedded and industrial sectors.

The FerVID Family uses ferro-electric memory, or FRAM, for fast write speeds, high-frequency rewritability, radiation tolerance, and low-power operation. The new chip will be available in sample quantities beginning August 2012.

Fujitsu Semiconductor's FRAM products serve as chips for high-functionality RFID tags operating in the HF band (13.56MHz) and UHF band (860 to 960MHz), which it has offered as the FerVID family since 2004.

These products serve a wide range of applications, including chips for data-carrier tags in the factory automation and maintenance sectors that take advantage of FRAM's fast write speeds and high memory capacity; chips for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors that withstand gamma radiation and electron beams and chips with serial interfaces for embedded applications.

A new need has arisen for larger memory capacities and the ability to connect RFIDs to sensors and microcontrollers to change product operating parameters wirelessly, or to wirelessly capture a log of environmental factors during distribution. These features benefit manufacturing control in automotive and electronics manufacturing, and maintenance applications in aircrafts, roadways, buildings and public works.

The MB89R112 chip for RFID tags respond to these needs and include a serial interface SPI and 9KB of memory capacity. The MB89R112 is designed as a near-field passive RFID that complies with the industry standard ISO/IEC 15693. The product will be available in sample quantities beginning in August 2012.

The addition of the MB89R112 to the FerVID Family means the product line now includes HF-band chips covering a range of capacities from 256B to 9KB, and UHF-band chips covering a range from 4KB to 64KB. For chips with serial interfaces for embedded applications, the line now includes a 4KB UHF-band chip and a 9KB HF-band chip.
