IoT-ready RFID inlays
29 November 2018
Offering the world’s smallest inlay, extended read range and better usability, Smartrac’s new Ucode 8-based Miniweb, Dogbone and Belt Rain RFID inlays are IoT-ready.
Ucode 8 is the latest generation of NXP’s Ucode family of Rain RFID products and enables superior read distances and faster inventory counts for high volumes of items. Inlays with NXP Ucode 8 also benefit from the capabilities of Smart Cosmos, Smartrac’s Internet of Things platform
The IC features a ‘self adjust’ function that optimizes its sensitivity to achieve maximum performance in different environments. This optimisation is performed at startup and is enabled in the default IC configuration as delivered by NXP. Furthermore, Ucode 8 has an integrated Brand Identifier function to prove product authenticity, and a memory safeguard system to protect business data.
The new Belt, Dogbone and Miniweb inlays fully leverage the features that make the Ucode platform stand out, offering optimum performance for their size and exceptional suitability for a wide range of applications. The new inlays and tags in the ETSI bandwidth offer optimum performance particularly in areas such as brand protection, inventory accuracy, loss prevention or enhanced customer experiences.
Smartrac’s latest inlays with NXP Ucode 8 also benefit from the capabilities of Smart Cosmos, Smartrac’s Internet of Things platform, which records and manages a complete set of unique transponder data at production level in a controlled and secure way. As the backbone of Smartrac’s IoT solutions, Smart Cosmos enables full traceability of delivered RFID products and provides fully reliable quality assurance.
