EM4123
Read-only UHF RFID IC
Features
Description
The chip is used in passive UHF read-only transponder
applications. It is powered up by an RF beam transmitted
by the reader, which is received and rectified to generate a
supply voltage for the chip. A pre-programmed code is
transmitted to the reader by varying the amount of energy
that is reflected back to the reader. It implements a robust
and fast anti-collision protocol. The chip is frequency
independent and can be used for RF coupled applications
where reading ranges in excess of 10 m and reading rates
of 120 tags per second at 256 kbit/s can be attained.
The chip is backscattering data using load modulation.
Therefore the reader should be able to detect ASK and
PSK modulated carrier.
