Alien Technology Unveils Next Generation High-Memory UHF RFID IC and Tags

Alien Technology, an industry leader in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Ultra High Frequency (UHF) products and services, has introduced the Higgs-9 IC, the first release of its next-generation of Higgs RFID semiconductor integrated circuits. The company also announced its newest high-memory inlays. 

The new Higgs-9 enables enterprise-critical applications to run faster, smarter and with quicker ROI in RFID deployments. Incorporating the Higgs Sentinel™ Memory platform, the Higgs-9 offers superior write accuracy, memory retention and read reliability under the most extreme conditions. Higgs-9 provides a base 96-bit EPC field and 688-bit User Memory field which is relocatable to the EPC field for applications requiring an expanded EPC. No special software or commands are required.

The improved sensitivity of the Higgs-9 chip, coupled with its expanded memory capacity, makes it a great fit for asset-tagging customers. This chip is consistently encountering challenges from OEM customers looking for greater read range in a smaller footprint tag, as well as encoding capability beyond the standard 96 or 128 bit EPC memory allocation.
