Original Press Release
MAINtag Introduces FLYchip64, the Highest-Performing RFID Memory Chip Meeting ATA Spec 2000 Standards
Press release date: February 12, 2014
FLYchip64, MAINtag's new UHF high-memory chip is fully compliant with ATA Spec 2000 and ISO18000-6C specifications for reliable and accurate aircraft parts marking and inventory. Retrofitting to create "smart" flyable parts is part of MAINtag's vision.
Impressive High-Memory Performance
Performance tests have shown that FLYchip64 operates with up to 7m read range (compared to maximum 2m with existing available options), outperforming the industry competition in high-memory range, with sensitivity that allows for up to four times the distance and reliability when using standard readers. All potential tag designs, including low profile metal compliant, dedicated to ATA spec 2000 high-memory, are now possible.
FLYchip64 Key Features
Ideally suited to ATA Spec 2000 Chap9.5 V4.0 latest version
Aerospace Extended Specification (-55°C + 150°C / -66°F + 302°F Atmospheric radiation)
UHF RFID C1-Gen2 - ISO/IEC 18000-6C protocol for communications at 860 - 960 MHz
GS1 EPC tag data standard Tds 1.7
65,536 bits user memory
496-bits EPC & 208-bits tag identifier (TID)
32-bits access password + 32-bits kill password to permanently disable the tag
BlockWrite, BlockErase and BlockPermalock function on 16 bits boundaries
Minimum operating power (in reading): -15dBm; 4x better sensitivity than existing available high-memory chips makes it easy to design performing low- profile metal compliant tags.
