Applications like these usually happen to either RAIN RFID (UHF) or NFC technology respectively. NFC is for proximity use with a smartphone while RAIN RFID technology features long reading distance, making it ideally adopted in inventory and supply chain management. By using NFC technology, the brand owner can manage their products with an ID number to match the data in the backend system. Taking advantage of this, users can easily tell if they are paying for what they get – the authentic goods. On the contrary, RAIN RFID technology features long reading distance, making it commonly adopted in inventory and supply chain management.
Now, SAG develops a new dual frequency label which can operate on both NFC and RAIN RFID (UHF) technologies. Powered by em|echo-V chip (EM4425) by em microelectronic, this label provides an application crossover and opens the possibility to apply just one label to fit all use cases. In other words, your applications are no more limited and can expand in multiple venues such as retail, healthcare, consumer electronics, automotive, logistics and so on.
