New integrated NFC tag/sensor devices: How low-cost, low-power RF technology enables new applications

AMS's NFC sensor white paperThis seven-page technical paper explains how NFC-enabled sensors can be used to deliver service improvements in “hundreds of applications in many market sectors.”

NFC-enabled sensors are small, cheap and easy to use, the paper explains, and are available with no external power source required.

Potential use cases range from a blood sugar monitor that can be implanted under a diabetic’s skin and then read at any time by holding an NFC phone or tablet next to the implant through to a variety of building and supply chain management, remote metering and process control applications.

Download this technical paper and you will learn how NFC-enabled sensors work, understand the operational options available and discover the reasons why, for relatively low data-rate and short-range applications, NFC is a very attractive technology.
