Texas Instruments ($TXN) launched its first flexible, high-frequency sensor transponder for use either in fully passive (batteryless) devices or to extend battery life in semi-active modes in a wide range of medical devices, consumer wearables, industrial and asset-tracking applications. Some potential uses for the transponder include securely sharing data with healthcare providers through disposable patches that sense patient temperature and hydration. Release
