Recently NFC tag chips have become available that exhibit functionality beyond pure identification or NDEF Messages: Integrated sensors, GPIOs, I2C Master capabilities or even full-blown microcontrollers.
Printed electronics is a perfect match for enabling mass-production of novel NFC sensor tags.
Especially printed resistors, batteries, sensors and indicators help Identiv build solutions based on next generation NFC tags for the logistics, industrial, pharmaceutical and medical area.
