Identiv & NXP Unveil Ultra-Low-Cost NFC Tag for IoT Applications

Identiv has introduced a new ultra-low-cost RFID inlay - Dry Inlay NXP NTAG210µ - in collaboration with NXP Semiconductors. Using NXP’s near field communication (NFC) IC NTAG 210µ, Identiv’s Dry Inlay (25 mm diameter) has launched at an unrivaled price of $0.05 a tag for a minimum order of 20K Unites. Compatible with any Android or Apple iOS 11 and up NFC-enabled device, the inlay is ideal for enabling NFC use cases including Internet of Things (IoT) and customer engagement applications. With over two billion NFC reader-enabled devices deployed globally, NXP’s easy-to-use inlay is designed to facilitate the adoption of NFC technology across markets in which contactless technology has typically been cost-prohibitive.

Identiv’s Dry Inlay design (chip + antenna + epoxy glue + [PET] film) or wet (adhesive backing) inlays can be directly embedded in or converted into finished products. Ideal applications for Identiv’s inlay portfolio include the Internet of Things (IoT), NFC smart posters and billboards, libraries, event and transportation ticketing, automotive and chemical industries, logistics and supply chain, asset management, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, fast-moving consumer goods, beauty care, spirits, device authentication and counterfeit protection, electronic games, event management, wearable technology, and customer loyalty programs.

Identiv’s portfolio of 13.56 MHz high-frequency and ultra-high-frequency (HF and UHF) RFID Inlays are completely customizable, are available as dry or wet, and come in various shapes and sizes. Available in different form factors, including labels (printed or not), dry inlays, wet inlays (with backing adhesive), and paper tickets, Identiv’s tags are uniquely positioned to deliver RFID connectivity to any object in the IoT market.
