MLX90129: 13.56MHZ SENSOR TAG / DATALOGGER IC
The MLX90129 combines a precise acquisition chain for external resistive sensors, with a wide range of interface possibilities. It can be accessed and controlled through its ISO15693 RFID front-end or via its SPI port.Without any other component than a 13,56MHz tuned antenna, it becomes a RFID thermometer.
For measuring others physical quantities, one or two resistive sensors can be connected to make batteryless sensing point. In this tag mode, the chip can supply a regulated voltage to the other components of the application.
Adding a battery will enable the use of the standalone data logging mode. The sensor output data is stored in the internal 3.5kbits user memory. One can extend the storage capacity by connecting an external E2PROM to the SPI port.
The SPI port can also connect the MLX90129 to a microcontroller which allows more specific applications, like adding actuating capability or RF transmission.
The MLX90129 has been optimized for low power, low voltage battery and battery-less applications.

The EVB90129 is an assembled printed circuit board that simplifies evaluation of the MLX90129 sensor tag IC and to facilitate the development of wireless sensor applications based on the MLX90129.
The EVB90129 was developed to demonstrate a wide range of applications, from fully passive sensor tag operation to complex data logging. Each of its elements can be reconfigured by means of jumpers.
The board can be powered either by an external voltage supply, the on-board battery or the electromagnetic field from a RFID reader.In addition to the internal temperature sensor of the MLX90129, the EVB90129 embeds 3 external sensors, light, temperature and potentiometer to demonstrate the flexibility for measurement of a variety of physical quantities. The custom prototyping area allows users to integrate their own sensor or circuit into this evaluation board.
The EVB90129 is capable of storing 128 Kbytes of datas in the SPI EEPROM memory connected to the MLX90129. The EVB90129 can be accessed and controlled through a contactless (RFID) or a contact (SPI) interface. The RFID access to the MLX90129 and the related commands are compliant with the ISO15693 standard. The SPI and other digital inputs/outputs from the MLX90129 are connected to an 8-pin connector of the EVB90129. This allows easy connection to a microcontroller.
