Identiv Expands Partnership with STMicroelectronics to Boost NFC Solutions

Identiv | February 15, 2023 | Read time : 01:54 min


Identiv, Inc., a leader in digital security and identification in the Internet of Things (IoT), has recently announced that it expanded its partnership with STMicroelectronics to offer new near-field communication (NFC) inlays for wine and spirits, healthcare, luxury goods, medical devices, pharmaceutical, apparel, consumer packaged goods, and smart packaging applications for any industry.

NFC technology has evolved to a level where people rely on NFC-equipped smartphones and wearables to navigate the world daily. Identiv now provides specialist NFC and high frequency (HF) designs with ST's cost-effective ST25TN Type 2 NFC chips, bolstering Identiv's standing as a global leader in RFID/NFC technology.

The ST25TN conforms with ISO/IEC14443 Type A and NFC Forum Type 2 tag specifications, works at a fast baud rate of 106kbits/s, and incorporates the TruST25 digital signature, which guarantees tag authenticity and protects brands from counterfeiting. All ST25TN chips are Type 2 Tags and adhere to the NFC Forum's NFC-A Technology specification.

The information stored on NFC tags is sent to NFC smartphones or professional NFC/RFID HF readers that work with the NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF). The ST25TN series provides tags with user memory ranging from 512 bits to 1.6 kilobytes and an automatic contextual NDEF messaging service. This Augmented NDEF technology enables tags to react with dynamically generated content following a simple "tap" from NFC-enabled mobile devices.

Identiv's new bitse.io connected IoT platform enables customers to develop direct-to-consumer branded communications using its new ST25TN-enabled NFC solutions. Experiences can be designed to produce unique personalization and greater end-user engagement.

indie Semiconductor and SiLC Technologies Form Strategic Technology Partnership to Deliver World-Class FMCW LiDAR Solution

businesswire | August 08, 2023

indie Semiconductor (Nasdaq: INDI), an Autotech solutions innovator, and SiLC Technologies, Inc (SiLC), a leader in silicon photonics innovation, have entered into a light detection and ranging (LiDAR) partnership that enables coherent detection-based LiDAR platforms for next-generation sensing applications, including driver assistance, autonomous mobility, robotics and industrial automation. This partnership will deliver fully integrated vision system platforms deploying frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) detection, redefining benchmarks for rapidly emerging LiDAR applications. FMCW-based LiDAR delivers multiple real-world benefits compared to direct detection-based Time of Flight (TOF) solutions, including long-range with high precision, interference immunity, per-point instantaneous velocity and motion measurement. This ground-breaking partnership combines award-winning products from indie and SiLC into reference platforms that enable an order of magnitude improvement in sensing performance, manufacturability, power consumption, form factor and cost relative to competing systems. “indie is excited to partner with SiLC to bring the processing innovation from Surya to FMCW LiDAR, offering a breakthrough reference design,” said Chet Babla, senior vice president, strategic marketing at indie Semiconductor. “By combining the software-defined high-performance - but low power - analog and digital processing and system control capabilities of Surya™, coupled with SiLC’s Eyeonic™ vision solution, system integrators and OEMs are enabled with 4D FMCW imaging for mass market deployment into multiple applications.” Ralf Muenster, vice president, business development and marketing at SiLC added, “We are excited to partner with indie to bring industry-leading FMCW-based LiDAR platforms to market. Our state-of-the-art FMCW LiDAR sensor features the highest integration, resolution, precision, and longest range of any other competing approach, while remaining the only commercially available solution to offer polarization information.” Driven by strong market demand, reference platforms featuring Surya™ and Eyeonic™ have already been deployed and are being evaluated by select lead automotive, tier one and industrial OEMs, and both indie and SiLC are actively developing new reference platforms to showcase the scalability and flexibility of their combined technologies. About indie indie is empowering the Autotech revolution with next generation automotive semiconductors and software platforms. We focus on developing innovative, high-performance and energy-efficient technology for ADAS, user experience and electrification applications. Our mixed-signal SoCs enable edge sensors spanning Radar, LiDAR, Ultrasound, and Computer Vision, while our embedded system control, power management and interfacing solutions transform the in-cabin experience and accelerate increasingly automated and electrified vehicles. We are an approved vendor to Tier 1 partners and our solutions can be found in marquee automotive OEMs worldwide. Headquartered in Aliso Viejo, CA, indie has design centers and regional support offices across the United States, Canada, Argentina, Scotland, England, Germany, Hungary, Morocco, Israel, Japan, South Korea and China.

Consumer Technology Association Joins White House to Support Cybersecurity Labeling Program to Protect Consumers from IoT Attacks

prnewswire | July 20, 2023

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) today joined officials from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the National Security Council (NSC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the launch of the U.S. Cyber Trust Mark program to give consumers more information about the cybersecurity of the Internet of Things (IoT)-connected products they buy. "While walking CES this year, I saw IoT products that improve healthcare, transportation and energy efficiency. While IoT makes our world better, it also tempts bad actors to exploit consumers' connected devices," said CTA president and CEO Gary Shapiro. "Research shows consumers want more information on the safety and security of their connected devices, and we agree." Today's announcement is a prime example of what can be accomplished through public-private cooperation. This announcement was informed by recommendations that CTA made over the past five years. The program relies on a voluntary, dynamic product certification program that requires manufacturers to use specific security measures. That certification will help educate consumers and businesses about new connected products they're evaluating or purchasing. CTA has a proven track record seeding and leading public-private collaborations, as evidenced by its recent work with industry and the FDA to bring over-the-counter hearing aids to tens of millions of Americans. In the coming days, the FCC will launch the rulemaking process to support the Cyber Trust program. Consumers can expect to see certification-ready products at CES 2024. In the interim, CTA will continue to convene manufacturers, alliances, universities, consumer advocates, and CTA's own ANSI accredited standards body to work with federal officials as they craft final rules governing the program. As the FCC works to stand up the Cyber Trust Mark program, CTA, as the voice of the tech industry, will show that government and industry can work together to strengthen incentives for participation, and ensure manufacturers and retailers embrace this critical program. "CTA's work created the foundation for the U.S. Cyber Trust Mark to help consumers identify secure products," said Michael Bergman, Vice President, Technology and Standards, CTA. "This program will minimize label footprint on packaging, while allowing for flexibility in displaying web pages for specific security parameters to consumers for participating devices." Today's announcement was held at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and included a trade-show-style exhibition showcasing the latest technology in internet-connected consumer products, including TVs, washing machines, and a range of consumer appliances. About Consumer Technology Association As North America's largest technology trade association, CTA® is the tech sector. Our members are the world's leading innovators – from startups to global brands – helping support more than 18 million American jobs. CTA owns and produces CES® – the most influential tech event in the world.
