Oluf Alminde

Director of Sales and Marketing – IDS Microchip

Speaks at ID WORLD on Wireless Identification

An electronic engineer, Oluf Alminde continued to be promoted in international telecommunication and semiconductor companies from Design Engineer at Alcatel in Horsens, Denmark through Product Marketing at austriamicrosystems AG in Graz, Austria and at AMI in Dresden, Germany to Strategic Marketing Manager at ZMD AG in Dresden, Germany, Oluf Alminde was involved in the development of the first electronic feature telephones in Alcatel. Later as product marketing manager at austriamicrosystems, Oluf was responsible for developing the world’s first single-chip telephone products, which are still produced and sold worldwide today. In subsequent positions at AMI and ZMD, he was involved in defining product strategies including the development of wireless and RFID products.

In 2004, Oluf became member of the IDS team to initiate and execute the transition of IDS from a design house into a semiconductor company with its own-developed RFID product portfolio targeting the emerging RFID + sensor application markets. Oluf holds patents in communication and RFID.

“ENRICHING RFID WITH SENSORS OPENS NEW HORIZONS REVEALING VAST NEW APPLICATIONS SUCH AS PERPETUAL TRACKING AND MONITORING OF OBJECTS AND ENVIRONMENTS IN ANY LOCATION”

Sensory tags are RFID tags, which incorporate sensory functionality in addition to merely providing a unique ID. This allows validatiON of the origin of any object as well as verification of the environmental conditions to which the object has been exposed. In other words, sensory tags represent the Curriculum Vitae of Things.

The conditions of any goods during transportation or in any storage as well as environmental information can be watched and recorded by RFID sensory tags. Perishable items such as food, beverage and medicine are subject to a temperature-dependent chemical reaction, which determines their shelf life. The construction history and condition of buildings, bridges, roads and any other construction facility can be determined and stored locally in sensory tags for the lifetime of the construction. Collected sensory information typically includes temperature, humidity, pressure and vibration. Recording, especially elderly people’s medication consumption, is another helpful usage of sensory tags. Medication dispensers and blister packs with integrated sensory tags can record the consumption of pills and other medication with time stamps. This allows medical staff to monitor if patients keep to their prescription schemes. Such RFID systems may even remind the patient when it is time to take the medication.

IDS Microchip’s SL13A and SL900A are such sensory tags for HF and UHF respectively. The SL13A is based on ISO 15693 whereas the SL900A is EPC Gen2 compliant. These single-chip sensory tags/data loggers incorporate a temperature sensor and an interface for external sensors. The integrated real-time clock (RTC) provides time stamping of events. Collected and logged data are protected with passwords to preclude manipulation and unauthorized usage of the data.
