Demonstration board for M24LR16E-R, Documentation purpose only

The ROBOT-M24LR16E-A is a ready-to-use PCB that features an M24LR16-R dual interface EEPROM IC connected to an I²C bus and a 20 mm x 40 mm 13.56 MHz etched RF antenna. It also features two LEDs, powered by the M24LR16E-R VOUTpin and an output connector.

The ROBOT-M24LR16E-A has three functions:

Switch in the “LED” position: the robot demonstrates energy harvesting by powering the LED when a sufficient magnetic field is captured.

Switch in the “VOUT” position: the energy captured from the electromagnetic field is used to power an external application through the VOUTpin.

RF WIP/BUSY function: for the RF WIP/BUSY pin of M24LR16E-R, please refer to the M24LR16E-R datasheet for further details.

To demonstrate the energy harvesting function, the ROBOT-M24LR16E-A can be used in conjunction with ST DEMO-CR95HF-A demonstration board.

Key Features

  • 20 mm x 40 mm 13.56 MHz inductive antenna etched on PCB
  • M24LR16E-R dual interface EEPROM
  • I²C connector
  • Energy harvesting output (VOUT ) with a capacitance filtering circuit
  • RF WIP/BUSY output with 20 kΩ pull-up resistor, to indicate that an RF operation is ongoing
