ThingMagic® M2 HF Embedded RFID Module
The ThingMagic® M2 HF Embedded RFID Module is JADAK’s premium multi-protocol RFID module designed for OEMs who build for high privacy protection, anti-counterfeiting, and anti-tampering applications like the pharmaceutical and medical supplies industry, and require complete customizable control over how data is shared.
The M2 is powerful enough to read and write to any transponder based on ISO 14443 (parts 2, 3, and 4) and ISO 15693 communication standards; and securely encrypts and transmits using Data Encryption Standard (DES), Triple-DES, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA), MD5, and an internal Pseudo-Random Number Generator (PRNG).
Despite its powerful security features, the M2 has a minimal footprint and can fit into most new or existing OEM designs. It is outfitted with 7 General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) pins with other available interfaces including USB 2.0, and Common Blade Interface; software adjustable host interfaces UART (TTL), SPI and I2C; and the capability to attach an external antenna for greater read range.

CASE STUDY: RFID for a safer school environment
RFID tags were affixed to the childrens’ bicycles and each time they rode through the school gate, a special custom-designed RFID cabinet containing a fixed reader would log the arrival of that child.
CASE STUDY: RFID for train car location and tracking
Train cars were equipped with an RFID tag and JADAK IZAR RFID readers were placed at multiple locations along the tracks. Combined with smart user software, this allows RSN to quickly retrieve the correct location of a train car.

How RFID can improve supply chain and patient safety in the COVID era
Today’s custom RFID applications have found new and greater significance in the medical space. By enabling item-level visibility, health organizations can directly enhance human biosafety and make their supply chains more accurate and responsive. But these applications are far from the over-the-counter solutions that can be found online. To reap these RFID benefits, custom engineering shops leverage several technologies, like AI and blockchain, in tandem with RFID tags hardened against harsh environments, to make the tracking of small things possible and bringing the story of their data to life.
