Press release date: April 28, 2008

Dresden, Germany, April 28, 2008 - KSW Microtec AG, one of the world's leading suppliers of RFID components, announces that it has developed an RFID-enabled UHF Gen2 transponder for magnetic tape cartridges using the UCODE G2X ICs from NXP Semiconductors. Converted into a label, it can easily be interfaced with data security, data tracking and tape management systems.

"In our data oriented business environment, reliable tape management is becoming indispensable," says Niels Bauer, Business Segment Manager at KSW Microtec. "In fact, track and trace of data can be essential for the success of a company."

KSW Microtec designed the Gen2 RFID transponder to meet the increasing demand from tape manufacturers and data storage companies for efficient and reliable identification and tracking of storage media such as magnetic tape cartridges. The 512-bit user memory of the NXP UCODE G2XM IC allows users to store more information on the IC than on any other Gen2 chip available on the market and ensures reliable operation across very long read ranges. The inlay is designed for a 10-year lifetime once converted into a media barcode label.

The new Gen2 media transponder is the latest addition to KSW Microtec's extensive range of HF and UHF RFID component portfolios.
