Atmel Launches Small LF RF IDIC With Unique ID for Access Control Applications

    Heilbronn, Germany (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Optimized for Next-Generation ISO Cards and Key Fobs

    Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), a global leader in the development  and fabrication of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced today the  availability of its ATA5567 small-sized 330-bit read/write transponder  IDIC(R) with unique ID, which is optimized for next-generation access-control  ISO cards and key fobs as used in access control systems (hotel rooms,  engineering departments and offices, time recording systems, parking lots)  and as membership cards. Since the device uses low frequency (LF), it can be  used worldwide; it is insensitive to rugged environments and can also be used  in less-than-ideal conditions (wet, dirty, shielded by metal, out of sight,  or worn on the body) which normally complicate the use of RFID devices.

    The ATA5567 is extremely small. Including an optional 75-pF on-chip capacitor, it measures less than 1 square millimeter, smaller than most of the available read/write products on the market, allowing it to be used in almost any transponder package.

    As the ATA5567's reset behavior fits perfectly to the reader devices available on the access control market, the IC is well-suited for next-generation ISO cards and key fobs. Furthermore, the IDIC provides a manufacturer-programmed unique ID that guarantees the end customer the singularity of this product, to prevent unauthorized access to secured areas. Also, the unique ID enables the retraceability of the product in case of problems with illegal duplicates or counterfeiting.

    The transponder IC is designed for passive identification systems with a 120-kHz to 150-kHz magnetic field. It supports different modulations/codings and has an on-chip binary bit-rate generator. These features, plus the implemented 64-bit unique TagID (also called traceability data), enable the customer to address the well-known ISO11784/11785 FDX-B standard. In spite of being an animal-ID standard, this standard is used by a broad range of access control systems.

    The ATA5567 IDIC is backward compatible and can replace Atmel's well-known T5557 in several applications.

    Samples are available now in wafer, micromodule form, or SO8 package. Pricing for the ATA5567 as wafer shipment with quantities of 15k pieces starts at US $ 0.34. To support the system designer, Atmel provides the design kit ATAK2270 with evaluation software.

      ID = IDentification
      IDIC = IDentification IC (Atmel patented term)
      LF = Low Frequency
