Ramtron have revealed availability of its MaxReader Development Kit. 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 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. 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.

“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.”
