Phase IV Engineering, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of Wireless Sensing Solutions with expertise in passive RFID sensing and ultra-miniature, battery-free wireless sensor integration, today announced that it has been chosen by CSIA as one of the most innovative technology companies in Colorado and will showcase its cutting edge innovations during the Colorado Technology Association’s (CSIA) DEMOgala on October 8, 2009, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Phase IV Engineering is one of only 20 Colorado companies nominated.
Phase IV Engineering developed a sophisticated Passive RFID Sensing ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) called the “SensIC” and, during the DEMOgala Showcase, will demonstrate its adapted use in a number of applications ranging from aerospace, agriculture and food processing. This tiny chip offers battery-less sensing and can wirelessly measure and communicate the ID, temperature and the value of an external MEMS sensor, such as pressure, shock, strain gauge, humidity, and more.
“Phase IV Engineering is very proud to have been chosen to be part of the CSIA DEMOgala. The company was selected from more than 140 nominees throughout Colorado, and we are very proud and honored to be one of the few selected from among the many truly innovative advanced technology companies from across this state," said Richard Pollack, CEO and Founder of Phase IV Engineering. "Phase IV has been at the forefront of innovation in Wireless Sensing for more than 17 years. As the inventors of Passive RFID Sensing (we developed the world’s first RFID sensing integrated circuit in the mid 1990’s), we have been providing turn-key solutions for the most harsh, challenging and diverse wireless sensing applications. Our SensIC technology opens up new possibilities for sensing in environments that were previously not possible.”
The theme of this year’s DEMOgala is “The Crossroads of Technology, Innovation & Growth”. RFID sensing and Phase IV Engineering’s products fit this theme perfectly.
The DEMOgala day long event features over 100 speakers on 15 different panels discussing the newest trends in technology. Topics include everything from cloud computing, software development, crowdsourcing, mobile applications, web commerce, open source, social networking, APIs, transparency, and much more.
