SS0808 – UHF EPC Gen. 2 Sensor Node

SS0808 – UHF EPC Gen. 2 Sensor Node


SS0808 is a UHF EPC Gen2 RFID device featuring temperature-sensing functionality, data logging and real-time data processing. Thanks to the large supply voltage, the device can be powered with a single-cell paper or thin battery, making SS0808 an ideal device for advanced battery-assisted labels.
The chip has an integrated temperature sensor and can be interfaced to an additional capacitive sensor (for measurement of RH, gas concentration, etc.).
SS0808 is suited for long-time monitoring thanks to the 8-kB internal memory. The embedded data-processing capability allows real-time calculation of parameters such as the remaining shelf-life of tagged item. The quality of the storage of the item in the supply chain must be readily and precisely assessed. The download of the complete data-log (up to 8kB) may thus be performed off-line when a fault in the supply chain (affecting the shelf-life of the item) is detected
