eAgile Launches the World's Smallest High Performance UHF Inlay for Item-Level Intelligence
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. and ZURICH – eAgile Inc., a global leader in radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies, announced today the release of their new UHF EPC compliant MicroWing™ inlay. The MicroWing is the size of a paper clip which makes it the smallest RFID inlay available on the market to achieve a greater than 2 meter read range.
"Our healthcare clients asked us to develop a small tag with robust performance and our results have been so favorable that the MicroWing appears to be a game changer for the entire RFID marketplace," stated Gary Burns, CEO of eAgile Inc. "This tag provides a new option for item level intelligence and we look forward to using the MicroWing to overcome many challenging applications worldwide."
MicroWing tag customers can expect to gain the following benefits:
Performance. MicroWing tags produce longer read ranges and faster read/write cycles when compared to other small form antenna designs while reducing the detuning effects caused by challenging RFID environments.
Versatility. The small 8mm x 22mm footprint of the MicroWing tag allows for conversion into the smallest tags, labels and packaging solutions without compromising performance or product design.
Durability. The smaller and more rugged design of the MicroWing tag significantly reduces the occurrence of damaged tags due to rough handling or harsh environments.
"Combining our small form antenna design with the improved read/write sensitivity and automatic tuning features produces a highly responsive and versatile tag," stated Peter Phaneuf, President of eAgile Inc. "This versatility allows us to use the MicroWing in applications which previously required larger format tags."
Although the MicroWing was designed for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare products its features and performance characteristics make it ideal for jewelry, cosmetics, apparel, footwear and many other intelligent packaging applications. The MicroWing is available through eAgile's service bureau in converted formats and can also be sequentially printed and encoded to customer specifications.
