About Ramtron's MaxArias Wireless Memory Solutions
Ramtron's family of MaxArias wireless memories combines up to 16-Kilobits of high-performance, nonvolatile F-RAM memory with the EPCglobal Class-1 Generation-2 UHF Air Interface Protocol Standard. When combined with an optimized antenna design, the MaxArias device powers up with energy harvested directly from the RF field. Mainstream RFID tags offer only a few kilobits of memory and exhibit inherently slow performance. Ramtron's introductory MaxArias wireless memory offers up to 1,000 16-bit words of data on the IC. End users can benefit from the high-performance, high-capacity MaxArias device by storing and retrieving their valuable information such as manufacturing data, production number and date, configuration status, malfunctioning history, repair history, and even firmware revisions.

Ramtron's MaxArias WM710xx family is ideal for applications spanning many industries including utilities, aircraft/industrial manufacturing, inventory control, maintenance tracking, building security, pharmaceutical tracking, and product authentication, among others.
