Skyetek - M7

The SkyeModule™ M7 is the world’s smallest, globally compliant UHF module. Its one of-a-kind combination of high performance, security, and cost/space/power efficiency makes it the industry’s price per performance leader, delivering the following beneits:

Ease of integration through SkyeAPI, a single library that abstracts, simplifies, and automates tag and protocol-specific functions for the programmer.

Investment protection through SkyeOS, permitting upgrading of modules in the field to grow with the evolution and cost savings in tag and reader technologies.

Tagnostic® support for more EPC Class 1 Gen 2 tags than any other comparable reader, allowing customers to fully optimize their application.

TagIQ™ that recognizes the unique characteristics of each tag so that read/write performance is maximized for each individual tag type.

Global SKU that provides regulatory pre-scan certification for major markets including FCC, ETSI (302 208), Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, Australia/New Zealand, Singapore & Hong Kong.

Unparalleled size that is less than a standard matchbook.

Performance optimization achieved through best-in-class power control (10 – 24dBm), noise reduction technology, and power management – essential for embedded applications.

Enhanced reliability through anti-collision and dense reader mode capability.

Unprecedented price-performance and TCO, best exempliied by ReaderDNA firmware and design licensing options which allows customers to manufacture modules at cost.
