TI's industry-leading HDX technology, hermetically encapsulated in the world's first 12mm glass transponder, gives customers the upper hand in creating RFID applications. The read range extends up to 20 inches (50 centimeters) and allows for easier tag spotting for fish tracking in fresh water and even in salt water environments where FDX technology completely fails. TI's HDX technology has high resistance to noise through frequency-shift keying (FSK) modulation and consistent performance through parametric testing and electronic resonance tuning performed on each mini-transponder throughout the production cycle.
Features and benefits of TI's 12mm mini-transponder
- Passive mini-transponder tags are 12mm x 2.12mm, enabling customers to introduce battery-free RFID tagging in smaller applications (e.g. tagging smaller fish).
- Each TRPGR30TGC mini-transponder is pre-programmed with a unique code for industrial applications and asset tracking. TRPGP40TGC mini-transponders can be programmed by users for livestock-, pet-ID and fish tracking.
- The TRPGR30TGC mini-transponder can be fully encapsulated in carbon fiber (bicycle frames, aerospace, automotive applications), environments with high noise levels (industrial applications, assembly lines) and in salt water.
- TI's complementary portfolio and software support help customers get their tagging products to the global market faster.
Pricing and availability
The TRPGR30TGC and TRPGP40TGC mini-transponders are immediately available for order and are priced at USD $2.90 for 1k units. The MRD2EVM USB evaluation kit will support all functions of TI's RFID tags such as reading/writing, as well as programming the TRPGP40TGC mini-transponders, and will be available for order after the launch.
