Ramtron Announces New Wireless Memory Development Kit
Ramtron International Corporation (Nasdaq: RMTR), the leading developer and supplier of nonvolatile ferroelectric random access memory (F-RAM) and integrated semiconductor products, today announced availability of its MaxReader Development Kit. Designed by Ramtron, the MaxReader Development Kit is a complete system for engineers to quickly evaluate, thoroughly test, and rapidly prototype Ramtron’s MaxArias™ wireless memory for a broad range of RF-enabled applications.
The MaxReader Development Kit features Ramtron’s MaxArias WM72016 16-Kilobit wireless F-RAM memory on a small-footprint, EPC Gen2 radio frequency reader board (interrogator) along with wireless memory transponders (also available separately) and other hardware to enable engineers to fully test and develop designs using the robust features of the MaxArias wireless memory. The kit offers a graphical user interface (GUI) and command line interface for ease-of-use as well as step-by-step, out-of-box application information and documentation to accelerate evaluation and prototyping.
“Ramtron’s MaxReader Development Kit offers an affordable and compact 1-watt Gen2 reader design that demonstrates the unique performance characteristics of our MaxArias wireless memory,” states Duncan Bennett, Ramtron wireless memory product manager. “The kit is a compelling demonstration vehicle and development platform that allows the wireless capture, transmission, and storage of data — up to six times faster than comparable EEPROM devices. In addition, MaxArias wireless F-RAM memory products, like the WM72016 included with the kit, are capable of capturing large block writes — up to 127 words— without loss of data integrity or compromising read/write speed and distance.”
MaxArias Wireless Memory Solutions: Increasing the Speed of WriteThe Ramtron WM72016 wireless memory excels in applications that require swift transaction of data-rich information over a low power, wireless RF connection. By dramatically reducing the time to write data, Ramtron MaxArias products enable innovative wireless applications. From consumable product authentication and passive wireless data logging, to increasing manufacturing throughput and enabling wireless in-field firmware updates, Ramtron MaxArias wireless memory offers customers cost-saving and efficiency-driven performance. Applications that can directly benefit from Ramtron wireless products include smart utility metering, medical devices, manufacturing, inventory management systems, and maintenance/repair/operations (MRO). Unlike mainstream RFID tags that offer limited memory and exhibit inherently low performance, Ramtron MaxArias wireless memory offers expanded memory as well as fast data storage and retrieval enabled by proven, high-performance, nonvolatile F-RAM memory technology. MaxArias devices are also gamma radiation tolerant, immune to magnetic fields, and conform to the EPCglobal Class-1 Generation-2 UHF air interface protocol.
