Smallest RFID enables cutting-edge identification and tracking technology for passive systems that support mission-critical operations.
The XS series tags are all standard passive UHF (Ultra High Frequency) tags that comply with EPCglobal Gen2v2 and ISO 18000-63 standards, also referred to as RAIN RFID.
A wide range of fixed and handheld RFID readers is available, with frequencies and antenna polarization matching the tags’ to ensure compatibility and optimal performance.
One of the best-known and smallest UHF RFID chips is the μ-chip (mu-chip), developed by Hitachi, and functions with a radio frequency of 2.4 GHz.
The μ-chip measures only 0.4 mm x 0.4 mm, which is about the size of a grain of sand. Its tiny size limits the read distances to only a few millimeters.
