RFMicron Launches Magnus™-S Sensor IC enabling Smart Passive Sensors to Expand the IOT Ecosystem

RFMicron today introduced the Magnus™-S Sensor IC to enable the development of ubiquitous smart passive sensors to accelerate the Internet of Things deployment

Online PR News – 27-May-2014 – Austin, Texas – “RFMicron’s Magnus™- S sensing IC solution is changing the sensor landscape by providing fully passive, microcontroller free, battery free, small form factor, wireless sensors to enable embedded applications”, said Shahriar Rokhsaz, CEO and President of RFMicron. “Existing sensor solutions require AC or battery power, local data processing, and the need for skilled deployment resulting in an order of magnitude higher sensor, maintenance, and installation costs.”

“Customers now have an alternative to traditional wired, active, or semi-active sensors,” said Hal Steele, RFMicron’s VP of Global Sales. “The Magnus™-S Sensor IC enables a new class of intelligent, low cost, scalable, and easily deployable sensor solutions to dramatically expand the world of the Internet of Things.”

To support the assessment and development of new sensor applications; RFMicron is offering a Smart passive Wireless Sensor Evaluation System. This system provides a turn-key tool to enable customers to evaluate the Magnus™-S Sensor IC. The system can be ordered on RFMicron’s website at:
