Atmel ATA6286-EK3 Active RFID Kit

A complete active RFID application system evaluation kit. Ideal for application where a larger operating distance or a larger data storage space is required.

  • Extended battery lifetime
  • Data transfer over larger distances
  • Multiple point response gathering
  • Anti collision scheme helps to avoid data corruption
  • RSSI triangulation for  tag tracking
ATMEL ATA6286-EK3 Active RFID Kit

Product Description

Active RFIDs are used for applications where larger distances or high data storage space are needed, for example:

  • Parking lot and garage entry using windshield tags
  • Animal identification and tracking over extended distances
  • Real-time location systems (RTLS)for Stock control & Warehousing
  • People tracking including wandering patient protection or baby tagging
  • Amusement park attraction activator

The Atmel ATA6286-EK3 is a complete system evaluation kit consisting of two main boards:

  • 125kHz LF trigger Control board
  • The UHF receiver unit to receive the message from the battery-powered tag (434MHz using ATA8202 UHF receiver IC)

Plus two battery-powered tag boards using the ATA6286C with:

  • Ultra-low power AVR 8-bit MCU (8kB Flash memory)
  • 434MHz integrated RF transmission peripheral
  • 125kHz LF receiver

The kit makes active use of a unique two frequency band system. A low frequency (LF) (125kHz) as the trigger and activation channel and for the data downlink path as well as an ultra-high frequency (UHF) (434MHz) for the return and uplink path. Meaning that the kit can maintain an amazing battery life with reception distances of 1-2m at LF and up to 10m at UHF (Distances dependent on size and shape of antennae).
In addition to the battery, you only need a crystal, LF RX antenna, and a couple of tuning components to be making use of a kit that allows you to configure the main parameters such as antenna ID and transmit power or  even design an anti-collision scheme.

Unique 2 Frequency Band System

Unique LF & UHF systems means battery life can potentially expanded to years while effective distances can be anything from 1m-10m

Everything You Need

2 mobile tags; LF trigger and transmitter board; plus 2 LF TX antennas; UHF receiver board with UHF antenna; 2 power supplies and Serial cable
