Smart Nanobattery Optimized for Active RFID ApplicationsFebruary 9, 2007
mPhase is developing an architecture for its energy source that can accommodate various configurations and deliver a shelf life of decades.
LITTLE FALLS, NJ /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- mPhase Technologies announced that it is creating a version of its Smart Nanobattery optimized for use in active RFID (radio frequency identification) applications. mPhase is working with an East Coast–headquartered company that specializes in complete RFID security solutions for diverse commercial applications.
RFID is a radio-transmitter sensor technology used for security and tracking systems. Active tags are used to keep track of high-value inventory items and capital assets, such as shipping containers, medical equipment, and automobiles.
"Active RFID tags require a small footprint with reliable portable power," said Ronald A. Durando, CEO of mPhase Technologies. "We are working with an active RFID vendor who is placing specific requirements on the nanobattery designs in order to extend the life of the active RFID tag. The inherent reserve capability of our nano battery architecture is ideal for powering active RFID tags."
The new Smart Nanobattery architecture promises an energy source that can be packaged in various configurations, with shelf life lasting decades, yet still able to be activated almost instantaneously on demand. Various battery designs based on this technology may deliver a new and unique component for system design across many fields, including defense, industrial, and consumer electronics.
