Enhanced data-storage tags

Responding to a demand for RFID tags that can store detailed product information for specialized applications, the co. has introduced two enhanced-functionality RFID chips: Monza(TM)/ID chips with secure, factory-programmed product identification numbers and Monaco(TM)/64, the first in a line of chips with user-programmable memory. Designed for anti-counterfeiting applications, Monza/ID chips are preprogrammed with unique identification numbers and are protected against erasure and overwriting. Monaco/64 chips provide 64 bits of user-rewritable memory and extend Gen 2 RFID tag data-storage capabilities beyond the standard EPC to include additional user-defined information. Monaco/64 chip memory can be programmed and read repeatedly to keep data timely and accurate, or data can be locked to prevent subsequent alteration. The Monaco family of chips targets industries and applications with specific data-storage requirements such as the airline, pharmaceutical, retail supply chain and sensor industries. Part of the co.'s GrandPrix(TM) Gen 2 solution, Monza/ID and Monaco/64 chips are based on the co.'s semiconductor technology and have the same footprint and performance characteristics as its Monza(TM) Gen 2 RFID chips that support basic EPC tracking.
