Driving Down the Total Cost for Embedding RFID in Handheld Devices and Consumables Authentication

Manufacturer: JADAK
ThingMagic Nova (UHF) RAIN

The ThingMagic Nova is an ultra-small, power-efficient, EPC Class 1 Gen 2 reader/writer module. A cutting edge ARM Cortex microcontroller and the latest RAIN UHF transceiver technology combined with the reader’s intelligent operating system make this a feature-rich module.

The ThingMagic Nova adheres to the PCI Express Mini half card form factor, a widely popular format, allowing the Nova to be used quickly and easily. Its small size allows this module to fit into almost any new or existing Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) design. ThingMagic Nova’s low power features, including software standby mode and sleep mode, wide-input voltage range, and highly efficient switching power design makes it well-suited for battery-powered and other power-sensitive applications.
