RFID Chips provide scalable EPC numbers up to 240 bit.

Press Release Summary:



With ability to operate across long read ranges and in dense reader environments, UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL offer flexibility when using RFID in multiple applications requiring different EPC codes and storing additional application data. Sensitivity of ICs enable broadband antenna designs allowing inlets to cover complete UHF band from 840-960 MHz. Designed for inlay assembly and high volume/yield assembly lines, chips are EPCglobal Class 1 Generation 2 (C1 G2) 1.2.0 compliant.

NXP Unleashes Advanced UHF Smart Label ICs



UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL RFID chips deliver unsurpassed ultra-high frequency performance

Eindhoven, Netherlands, September 25, 2007 - NXP, the independent semiconductor company founded by Philips, today announced the UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL, its next-generation smart label ICs featuring breakthrough performance over the entire UHF frequency range. The new UCODE RFID chips offer reliable operation across very long read ranges and in dense reader environments.

The UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL provide scalable EPC numbers up to 240 bit, offering unparalleled flexibility when using RFID in multiple applications requiring different EPC codes and storing additional application data. In addition, the UCODE G2XM provides 512-bit user memory, by far the largest dedicated user memory on the market today.

"Our newest UCODE devices are best in class for passive smart tags and labels, incorporating advanced capabilities requested by our customers, and have been fully optimized at the NXP RFID Reference Design Center in Austria," said Jan-Willem Reynaerts, general manager, RFID, NXP Semiconductors. "The UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL demonstrate unsurpassed UHF performance in real-world scenarios for supply chain management and logistics. Our latest smart label ICs provide reliable operation on different materials, across long distances in environments where multiple tags and labels are read simultaneously."

Established tag and label manufacturers such as LSIS, KSW Microtec, RF IDentics, RSI ID Technologies, Tagsys and UPM Raflatac have thoroughly tested the new G2X chips, with consistent positive feedback. Furthermore, some companies are already actively working on RFID implementations with end users based on the new NXP UCODE range in applications such as footwear, recorded media, apparel, and the manufacturing and tracking of electronic goods through global supply chains and into retail locations.

The NXP UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL are specifically designed for ease of inlay assembly and high volume/yield assembly lines. The sensitivity of the ICs allows for broadband antenna designs allowing inlets to cover the complete UHF band from 840 to 960MHz. Both the UCODE G2XM and the UCODE G2XL are EPCglobal Class 1 Generation 2 (C1 G2) 1.2.0 compliant. NXP offers these ICs as wafers, on straps and in surface-mount devices to its customers.

Availability
Orders for production volumes of the UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL are now being accepted.
