EM Microelectronic receives Connect+ Event Award

EM Microelectronic received the Award of the “Best technological innovation"

On 8 December 2016, EM Microelectronic received the Award of the “Best technological innovation for connected objects” for its em|echo circuit at the Connect+ Event in Paris, an exhibition dedicated to innovative identification solutions and smart objects.

em|echo represents the latest generation of EM Microelectronic 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.

With a common memory area and a common unique ID are accessible through both protocols, EM- ECHO allows businesses and consumers to integrate an infinite number of everyday items into the Internet of Things (IoT).
