Wireless technologies offer an impressive spectrum of features many applications will benefit from.
The Bluetooth wireless standard, now available in Release 5.0, offers attractive features to implement wireless data transmission with remarkably low effort. It features high market penetration and interoperability.
Whether it's about collecting sensor data, locating beacons, enabling location-based services, or replacing a legacy serial interface: Bluetooth does it all.
SCHMID mme is a Bluetooth SIG member in order to adopt new features into customers' applications as early as possible.
Ease of market entry and certification being most important, ZigBee might be the solution of choice. This radio protocol can be implemented easily and offers innovative features for sensing and lighting, among others.
Near-Field Communication (NFC)
Being a variant of RFID, NFC is the solution of choice when it comes to data transmission over a few centimeters only, using passive nodes ("tags") without energy source.
NFC comest in handy whenever identification, authentication, or configuration data needs to be transferred from or to a mobile device.
Due to stringent standardization, interoperability of NFC is best-of-class.
SCHMID mme has been implementing applications based on radio-frequency identification (RFID) for more than 10 years.
This technology to communicate over distances ranging from a few centimeters to several meters is the technological basis for NFC discussed above. It is being widely used for logistics, asset tracking, access control, micropayment and many more.
SCHMID mme designs RFID applications using LF (125 kHz), HF (13,56 MHz) or UHF (868 MHz).
