STMicroelectronics : New reference design demonstrates a wireless STEVAL-IDS002V1 sensor node powered by light


With the STEVAL-IDS002V1, STMicroelectronics has created a complete, fully configurable reference design for a wireless sensor node powered by a Photovoltaic (PV) module. The STEVAL-IDS002V1 is made up of a transmitter board which contains the SPIRIT1, an ST transceiver which operates at frequency ranges below 1GHz, and an STM32L151 low-power microcontroller which controls the configuration […]

STMicroelectronics : ST25TA02K-P – Tag IC with on-board memory provides NFC bridge to a host MCU


STMicroelectronics’ ST25TA02K-P is a dynamic NFC/RFID tag IC with an embedded 2kbit EEPROM which enables it to operate as an NFC or RFID bridge between a host MCU and an external device. The ST25TA02K-P, which supports the NFC Forum’s NDEF tag application for type 4 tags, conforms to the ISO/IEC 14443 Type A protocol for […]

STMicroelectronics : Complete proximity-sensing module VL6180X includes IR emitter and sensors in a single package


STMicroelectronics’ VL6180X is an innovative proximity and Ambient Light Sensing (ALS) module which takes an unusual approach to the measurement of distance from a reflective surface. It is based on ST’s patented FlightSense™ technology. This enables absolute distance to be measured independent of the target’s reflectance. Unlike conventional Infra-Red (IR) ALS systems, which estimate distance […]
