UPM RFID UHF products with the NXP UCODE G2iM chip are immediately available in sampling volumes. Volume deliveries start during Q2/ 2012 from UPM RFID's converting and distribution partners worldwide.

These new UCODE G2iL and G2iM based products will be presented at UPM RFID booth #512 during RFID Journal Live! in Orlando, FL, USA, on April 3-5, 2012.

"With seven new UCODE based inlays, UPM RFID's customers can be sure to find the right tag for their application. The highlights are the new UPM Stamp(TM) and UPM Jewel(TM), which are perfect for space-constrained products such as electronic devices or small form-factor fashion and jewellery items," says Chris Feige, general manager, tags and labels, NXP Semiconductors. "Furthermore, NXP's advanced UCODE G2iM chips with additional memory enable UPM RFID to offer higher read range tags with a flexible memory structure for markets including automotive or industrial. These applications are characterized by a need for more memory to store product, manufacturing or brand-owner related information."
