  Overview   Libraries strive to provide great service and to ensure easy access to media products. With thousands of visitors choosing from copious books, CDs, videos, and computer games, storing and controlling inventory poses huge challenges. To reduce the waiting time for visitors and to relieve staff, most libraries that use RFID rely on RFID-powered self-service media checkout stations. This approach reduces labor, ensures that books are returned to shelves quickly, shortens wait times and encourages more people to visit the library. Taking inventory with the aid of RFID takes only a fraction of the time required with traditional systems. With RFID labels easily applied to all types of media, library staff can use handheld RFID readers to quickly, conveniently and reliably locate misplaced books or other items. New systems such as Smart Shelves enable real-time location of all media within the library.

Overview   RFID enhances theft protection by giving each animal a unique, encrypted identification. Meat industry stakeholders can improve disease control by storing and updating vaccination and movement data directly into each animal’s chip, or by correlating the identification number with this information in the backend system. Such traceability ensures consumers healthy and tasty meat, with clear proof of origin. The ability to track livestock and their movements allows governments to trace what occurs in the supply chain, and to tax each player appropriately. In the case of disease outbreaks, the technology makes it possible to identify which flocks have been affected, which helps to avoid unnecessary waste. Application Benefits of RFID Livestock Management   Provides proof of origin Verifies age and supports disease control Automates handling at farm and auction house Provides theft protection Supports storage and updating of vaccination and movement data   RFID Features Beneficial to Application Permanent identification No line-of-sight requirement Simultaneous multiple identification Robust and suitable for harsh environments Compliance with government mandates   Recommended Products   RFID Link HITAG 2 transponder IC HT2x | NXP  HITAG µ / Advanced / Advanced+ HTMS1x01 HTMS8x01 | NXP

Overview The FAA now requires drone owners to register any device weighing more than 0.55 lbs. (250 g). For drones currently in the field, enforcing this new law might be problematic, as it relies on the honor system to some extent. But for new devices, NXP offers an easy enforcement method. How it Works NXP’s drone registration solution uses low-cost NFC technology to easily enforce compliance. Manufacturers could include an NFC reader within the drone housing. NXP makes this step straightforward by providing reference designs for drop-into-place design ease. Upon registration, consumers could receive an official government-issued registration certificate that comprises an NXP encrypted NFC tag in adhesive label form. Upon adhesion to the drone housing, the drone control electronics would wirelessly read the certificate. If valid, the drone microcontroller enables functionality. If not, the drone will not power up. Benefits Electronic registration provides more than just ease to government regulatory bodies, it also facilitates regulation of that drone to ensure the safety of all citizens. Upon application of the registration certificate sticker, the NFC chip inside the sticker could convey identification information to the drone microcontroller, such as the registration number, model/serial number of the drone, and its zoning classification. Because this information would now be housed with the drone, drone manufacturers could choose to broadcast select details, such as the classification information, via appropriate long-range wireless communication while in flight. If the drone flew within restricted airspace (near airports, sensitive government sites, stadiums, large public events, etc.), flight controllers could obtain the classification information (something virtually impossible to obtain visually) from the drone and thereby verify its authority (or lack thereof) to travel within a particular space, in order to help prevent potential catastrophes.   Block Diagram   Recommended Products Category Products Features RFID MIFARE DESFire EV2 | NXP  Contactless interface compliant with ISO/IEC 14443-2/3 A Fast data transfer: 106 kbit/s, 212 kbit/s, 424 kbit/s, 848 kbit/s   CLRC663 plus family | High-performance NFC frontends | NXP  Supports NFC Cockpit and NFC Reader Library RF standard compliance: ISO/IEC 14443A and MIFARE, NTAG ®   and SmartMX ®   families Drone PX4 Robotic Drone FMU | RDDRONE-FMUK66  Proven business-friendly open source software with available enterprise support: PX4, QGroundControl Supports all airframes: Use it for Quadcopters, Hexacopter, VTOL, planes, rovers, cars, and other robots Rapid-IOT to Drone adapter board Rapid-IOT to Drone adapter board  Adapter board fully designed for Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit UAVCAN communication between drone and Rapid IOT Works with PX4 flight controllers such as RDDRONE-FMUK66 or Pixhawk NXP Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit  Expandable to most IoT end-node use cases with 400+ Click boards™ Multiple sensors (Gyroscope, Acc/Mag., Barometer/Temp., Air Quality, Ambient light and capacitive touch)

  Overview For companies working on package drone delivery solutions, NXP technology provides a way to confirm that drones are operating within authorized airspace corridors, and then to secure an electronic signature before the drone sets down on the ground. The NXP electronic signature solution uses NXP Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to obtain a valid signature for delivery: The consumer would receive an electronic package notification via BLE to their mobile device The drone hovers over the delivery zone until it obtains the electronic signature After receiving the signature, the drone releases the package and returns to the point of origin, or it could travel to a nearby location for a package return Benefits For consumers: Drone delivery equals rapid, as well as reduced cost delivery, however, for both businesses and consumers need a way to verify parcel receipt. NXP’s electronic signature solution is efficient and non-invasive For businesses: Wireless signature confirmation ensures a level of protection of a valuable piece of commercial equipment (the drone), and reduces potential liability for loss due to theft or inaccurate parcel delivery For regulatory bodies: The electronic identification traveling with the drone helps ensure compliance with flight corridor restrictions, especially if those corridors require dynamic mapping   Block Diagram   Recommended Products Category Products Features BLE SoC K32W061/41 MCUs for Zigbee®, Thread, and Bluetooth® Low Energy 5.0 |NXP Multiprotocol RF | NXP  Powered by an Arm® Cortex®-M4 MCU and with 640 KB on-board flash and 152 KB SRAM.   KW39/38/37 32-bit Bluetooth 5.0 Long-Range MCUs|NXP | NXP  Bluetooth Low Energy version 5.0 and generic FSK radio.   QN9090/30(T) Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy MCU with NFC | NXP  Low energy devices that achieve ultra-low-power consumption and integrate an Arm®Cortex®-M4 CPU Up to 640KB onboard flash and 152 KB SRAM Drone PX4 Robotic Drone FMU | RDDRONE-FMUK66 Proven business-friendly open source software with available enterprise support: PX4, QGroundControl Supports all airframes: Use it for Quadcopters, Hexacopter, VTOL, planes, rovers, cars, and other robots Rapid-IOT to Drone adapter board Rapid-IOT to Drone adapter board Adapter board fully designed for Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit UAVCAN communication between drone and Rapid IOT Works with PX4 flight controllers such as RDDRONE-FMUK66 or Pixhawk NXP Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit Rapid IoT Prototyping Kit Expandable to most IoT end-node use cases with 400+ Click boards Multiple sensors (Gyroscope, Acc/Mag., Barometer/Temp., Air Quality, Ambient light and capacitive touch)

  Overview   Since 1996 in EU and since 2000 in Europe, the OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) is mandatory for all the cars manufactured. This protocol is used to verify the smoke emissions and check if any car is between the parameters stablished in every country. Also detect engine failures without need to check the engine manually, identifying accurately the problems reducing the repairing time and cost. OBD-II is a sort of computer which monitors emissions, mileage, speed, and other useful data. OBD-II is connected to the check engine light, which illuminates when the system detects a problem. Scan tools can be used to make sense of the diagnostic trouble codes and collect data on other aspects of vehicle’s performance.   Use Cases Hotspot in the CAR Geofences and speed limits Driving habits tracking Insurance and Rental Entertainment   Block Diagram   Products Category Name MCU Product URL 1 MIMXRT1050-EVK: i.MX RT1050 Evaluation Kit Product Description 1 The i.MX RT1050 EVK is a 4-layer through-hole USB-powered PCB.
