RFID Journal Live! 2010, RALEIGH, USA: Connecting everyday items to the internet through embedding short-range mobile transceivers enables a new medium of communication between people and objects and between objects themselves.
Novel EPCglobal C1G2 RFID products, including USB Dongle UHF RFID reader and Gen2 Tag with advanced capabilities, are presented allowing large scale integration of ubiquitous computing in a way triggering innovative ideas of high value applications for the everyday life. Easy to install, one-click downloadable software makes the technology utilizable for experts and novices alike in a simple and fast way to access the Internet of Things.
MTI’s game changing RFID USB Dongle (RU-888-100) based on austriamicrosystems AS3992 high-performance, completely-integrated silicon solution provides a global, affordable, mobile and enabling EPCglobal C1G2 integrated UHF reader complete with embedded antenna. RF-iT Solution’s innovative detego EXPRESS provides a powerful software module catalogue. A variety of predefined interfaces to backend ERP or database systems can be downloaded easily.
The Internet link module directly feeds product code information into internet search engines. NXP’s newly announced UCODE G2iL+ tag silicon provides advanced features for EPCglobal C1G2 tags, including the industry’s first tag level I/O signaling interfaces, enabling low cost passive UHF RFID to be used in applications never before possible.
Plug MTI’s RFID USB Dongle (RU-888-100) with austriamicrosystems inside to a USB port of your PC, download the detego EXPRESS software from RF-iT’s homepage and feed EPC data to any IT-Backend system of your choice. Through a series of interfaces defined data (ID, timestamp, location) is provided to seamlessly integrate into your IT backend systems like SAP, Navision, Sage and numerous others.

Find out valuable information about products and services by just presenting a tagged item to MTI’s RFID USB Dongle reader powered by austriamicrosystems with RF-iT’s software application seamlessly connecting EPC data to the world wide web.
Smart theft protection
The recently announced NXP Semiconductors UCODE G2iL+ presents many exciting new features never before available from EPCglobal C1G2 compliant UHF tag silicon. One application that the partners have leveraged from the UCODE G2iL+ and demonstrate is the activation and deactivation of electronic devices over the RFID link.
By integrating NXP’s tiny G2iL+ silicon into a tag, and then embedding this within an object or item, or even a printed circuit board (PCB) of a device such as a mobile phone, MP3 player or printer, the product can be stored on the sales floor in a deactivated state minimizing its value to potential shoplifters. Activation and downloading of relevant software or firmware of the device can be done at home after proper registration on the vendor’s homepage, or alternatively at the POS, whichever is most convenient.
