EM Microelectronic receives Connect+ Event Award for EM-echo

Marin, Switzerland --- EM Microelectronic’s EM-echo circuit was awarded Best Technological Innovation for Connected Objects at the Connect+ 2016 in Paris, an annual event for innovative identification solutions and smart objects. EM-echo represents the latest generation of EM Microelectronic’s contactless devices, bringing innovative features to the Rain RFID and NFC worlds. The chip combines two communication protocols in one single device:
• Rain RFID (also known as EPC Gen2) capable of high-speed, long range, multi-item reading operations common in today’s demanding logistics applications from production to the point of sale.
• Near Field Communication (NFC) privileged for single item, proximity range, customer related operation at the point of sale and beyond.

The circuit features a common memory area and a common unique ID accessible through both protocols.

The received award highlights EM’s ability to provide a unified RFID solution for logistics and marketing departments that simplifies the lives of both small retailers and product manufacturers looking to differentiate their products.
