ThingMagic Micro LTE Carrier Board



ThingMagic Micro LTE Carrier Board

ThingMagic Micro LTE module (M6E-Micro) soldered to a carrier board with M6E form factor. The Micro-LTE is designed to meet the demands of high performance RFID handheld, mobile, and stationary readers and is optimized for applications that require reading small tag populations. This embedded UHF RFID Reader offers two antenna ports and supports the ability to transmit up to +30 dBm for demanding applications. The edge connections for signals, power, and RF allow the module to be soldered directly to a motherboard as a standard component. The on-board connectors allow the module to be mated to a motherboard as an add-on option.

NOTE: This product is a carrier board – NOT a finished RFID reader – and is meant for OEM and developers to embed into products or to be used in the creation of a new finished reader. If you are interested in an existing finished reader product, check out our line of finished ThingMagic readers.
