It features an innovative energy harvesting function that enables batteryless designs.
It can be used in a wide variety of applications, including consumer electronics, computer peripherals, home appliances, industrial automation and healthcare products.

  • ISO 15693 and ISO 18000-3 mode 1 compatible
  • 400 kHz IC serial interface operating from 1.8 to 5.5 V
  • EEPROM memory density from 4 Kbits to 64 Kbits
  • Energy harvesting
  • 32-bit password protection
  • RF WIP/busy output pin
  • Speed operations (26,48Kb/s)
  • Simple antenna design, backward compatible with M24SR series

M24SRxx
The M24SR series provides an NFC forum tag type 4 RF interface and supports the NFC data exchange format (NDEF).
This enables NFC use cases such as simple Bluetooth pairing and other connection handovers, automatic links to URLs, storage of Vcard and other types of information.
It can be used in a wide variety of applications, including consumer electronics, computer peripherals, home appliances, industrial automation and healthcare products.

  • The RF protocol is compatible with ISO/IEC 14443 Type A and NFC Forum Type 4 Tag
  • 1 MHz IC serial interface operating from 2.7 to 5.5 V
  • EEPROM memory density from 2 Kbits to 64 Kbits with built-in NDEF message support
  • RF disable pin allowing the application to control RF access from NFC phones
  • 128-bit password protection
  • High speed operations (106Kb/s)
  • General-purpose output pin allowing flexibility for the applications (wake up on several types of events)
  • Simple antenna design, backward compatible with M24LR series

SRTAG-D

The SRTAG-D series provides an NFC forum tag type 4 RF interface and supports the NFC data exchange format (NDEF). This enables NFC use cases such as simple Bluetooth pairing and other connection handovers, automatic links to URLs, storage of Vcard and other types of information. It can be used in a wide variety of applications, including consumer electronics, computer peripherals, home appliances, industrial automation and healthcare products.
  • NFC forum tag type 4 based on ISO 14443 RF interface
  • EEPROM memory density from 2 Kbits to 16 Kbits with built-in NDEF message support
  • High-speed operation (106 Kbit/s)
  • 128-bit password protection
  • General-purpose output pin allowing flexibility for applications (microcontroller wake up)
  • Simple antenna design, backward compatible with all dynamic NFC/RFID tag series

M24LR-Discovery


The official page is here.

M24LR-DISCOVERY is a ready-to-use kit which features the M24LR04E-R Dual Interface EEPROM IC.
It addresses a wide range of applications such as industrial or medical equipment and consumer electronics.
This kit contains 2 different boards:

1) The M24LR board (the board with the LCD display) is battery-less and is powered by RFID readers or NFC-enabled phones supporting ISO/IEC 15693.
2) The RF transceiver board is an RFID reader demonstration board and is composed, among other parts, of a CR95HF (13.56 MHz multi-protocol contactless transceiver IC with SPI and UART serial access).
This board has to be plugged in to a PC and comes with a demonstration software.


The M24LR board also works with Android NFC phones supporting ISO/IEC 15693.
An application called NfcV-Reader is available on Google Play.
Performance may vary depending on NFC phone's RF management.


The M24LR board mount the:
M24LR04E-RMN6T/2 Dual Interface EEPROM with I2C and ISO/IEC 15693 RF interfaces, 4 Kbits of EEPROM and password protection in SO8N package

M24SR-Discovery


The official page is here.

The M24SR-DISCOVERY is a demonstration kit to evaluate the features and capabilities of the M24SR series and is based on the M24SR64 device.
Two versions of this kit are available: the Standard Edition and the Premium Edition.

The Premium Edition includes all of the Standard edition features, plus a headset and a Bluetooth module to demonstrate the convenience to pair it with a smartphone via NFC.

The M24SR64 device is a dynamic NFC/RFID tag IC with a dual interface.
It embeds a 64 Kbits EEPROM memory. It can be operated from an I2C interface or by a 13.56 MHz RFID reader or an NFC phone.

The I2C interface uses a two-wire serial interface, consisting of a bidirectional data line and a clock line. It behaves as a slave with respect to the I2C protocol.

The RF protocol is compatible with ISO/IEC 14443 Type A and NFC Forum Type 4 Tag.

The board is powered through the USB bus. It also includes a microcontroller STM32F103 to drive the EEPROM via I2C and the LCD screen via SPI bus.

X-NUCLEO-NFC01A1 for Nucleo boards


The X-NUCLEO-NFC01A1 is a Dynamic NFC tag evaluation board to allow expansion of the STM32 Nucleo boards.
It is compatible with the Arduino UNO R3 connector layout and it is designed around the M24SR64-Y.
The M24SR64-Y device is a dynamic NFC/RFID tag IC with a dual interface. It embeds a 64 Kbit EEPROM memory.
It can be operated from an I2C interface or by a 13.56 MHz RFID reader or a NFC phone.
The board is powered through the Arduino UNO R3 connectors. It also includes three LEDs for general purpose.

Matrix of multiple antenna for M24SR


The MATRIX-M24SR board features various antenna designs for M24SRXX-Y Dynamic NFC/RFID tag IC family combined on a single ready-to-use divisible PCB.
Each individual antenna features an M24SR64-Y Dynamic NFC/RFID tag IC connected to an RF antenna on one side, and to an I2C bus on the other side.
All antennas are populated with M24SR64-Y Dynamic NFC/RFID tag IC but are applicable to other densities.
The MATRIX-M24SR antenna matrix allows system designers to evaluate the M24SRXX-Y family performance and capabilities and to get started with their design.
