Product overview


The ST25TB02K is a contactless memory, powered by an externally transmitted radio wave. It contains a 2048-bit user EEPROM. The memory is organized as 64 blocks of 32 bits. The ST25TB02K is accessed via the 13.56 MHz carrier. Incoming data are demodulated and decoded from the received amplitude shift keying (ASK) modulation signal and outgoing data are generated by load variation using bit phase shift keying (BPSK) coding of a 847 kHz sub-carrier. The received ASK wave is 10% modulated. The data transfer rate between the ST25TB02K and the reader is 106 kbit/s in both reception and emission modes.

The ST25TB02K follows the ISO 14443 - 2 Type B recommendation for the radio-frequency power and signal interface.

The ST25TB02K is specifically designed for short range applications that need re-usable products. The ST25TB02K includes an anticollision mechanism that allows it to detect and select tags present at the same time within range of the reader. The anticollision is based on a probabilistic scanning method using slot markers.

The ST25TB02K contact-less EEPROM can be randomly read and written in block mode (each block containing 32 bits). The instruction set includes the following nine commands:

The ST25TB02K memory is organized in three areas, as described in . The first area is a resettable OTP (one time programmable) area in which bits can only be switched from 1 to 0. Using a special command, it is possible to erase all bits of this area to 1. The second area provides two 32-bit binary counters which can only be decremented. The last area is the EEPROM memory. It is accessible by block of 32 bits and includes an auto-erase cycle during each Write_block command.

Die floor plan and physical options related to the die assembly are described in Figure 2.

For the option 1 of the die assembly, the CTUN (referenced in Table 2) can increase from 0.5pF to 1pF. The option 2 of the die assembly is showing a tripod which can be used for physical stability, having no impact on CTUN parameter.
