PragmatIC Introduces Ultra-Low Cost Flexible RFID ICs

PragmatIC have introduced the first products in their ConnectIC family of flexible integrated circuits (FlexICs), designed for use in closed HF RFID systems. Developed using PragmatIC’s unique platform of patented technologies, ConnectICs deliver connectivity solutions at the lowest cost point in the market. These revolutionary FlexICs are ultra-thin and flexible; suitable for embedding into a wide range of substrates, including paper and plastic; and reduce the complexity of inlays by using single layer antennas, delivering a further step down in cost to brand owners and retailers. These ConnectICs are extremely attractive for high-volume fast moving consumer goods (FMCGs) and other mass-market applications, with electronic connectivity no longer limited to high value, luxury items.

The PR1100 product series (PR1101 and PR1102) facilitates rapid detection of objects when one or more low-cost custom readers are integrated into the system. Designed for proximity identification applications, these FlexICs are ideal for applications including hierarchical inventory management, item identification, and tracking, supply chain assurance and brand authentication. They are targeted at market segments such as food and beverage, personal and home care, pharmaceutical, and healthcare. They also support the introduction of digital interactivity into physical toys and games. Click here to learn more about PR1100 Products.
