Accelerating RFID Usage

RF-Loop Tag is a manufacturing process of UHF transponders based on a modified UHF clip module from NXP and company's high-speed manufacturing solution. Concept enables smart label/ticket converters to work directly with semiconductor industry to manufacture their own UHF inlays. System comprises a p-s mini-transponder placed on top of a die-cut aluminum antenna. Combination of these two components results in a functioning UHF transponder. Main goal is to accelerate widespread use of RFID in the industry.

Create an Economical Label Printer

The PM-300 label transport/printing mechanism, when combined with a commercially available printhead, becomes a fast, economical roll-to-roll printer, company says. Suited for printing or overprinting labels, especially with variable data. With the appropriate ink, user can print on the back of the labels. Offered in two versions: The PM-300-LS can print a 28-cm-dia roll of labels in less than 7 min; the PM-300-HS can print the same roll in less than 5 min. Company says most inkjet systems normally used on production lines interface easily to the PM-300 through a nine-pin connector.
