Panasonic – MN63Y-Family – NFC Tag ICs
Panasonic’s NFC (Near Field Communication) Tag LSIs, the MN63Y-family, achieves high reliable data communication, because the LSIs use FeRAM (Ferroelectric RAM) which has the features of high-speed writing, low-power consumption and high endurance.
The Tag ICs are RF interface compliant with JISX6319-4 (FeliCa), ISO/IEC14443 Type B and ISO/IEC14443 Type A of the 13.56 MHz frequency band. This enables stable communication with NFC terminals all over the world.
The NFC Tags can be mounted anywhere, because battery-off mode (powered by field) enables battery-less RF communication. You can check the information in the NFC Tag of the Equipment also in the case of failure.
One of the most important advantages of the MN63Y-family, compared to similar solutions from other suppliers, is that they are capable of three different communication modes. The RF, the serial and the tunnel communication mode. The Tunnel mode allows communication between reader/writer and host MCU via the LSIs. It enables the transfer of large data which would exceed the FeRAM capacity.
Following variants of the NFC Tag ICs are already released and are or will be shortly available at Rutronik.
- WiFi- and Bluetooth Pairing
- Smart Posters, etc.
