HID Global

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that its Identification Technologies division is introducing two miniaturised high frequency transponders to its Glass Tag family of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. Each tiny Glass Tag Vigo™ HF (13.56 MHz) bio-glass cylinder measures approximately 0.1 inch in diameter (2 mm to 3 mm), and just one-half inch long (12 mm to 13 mm), and provides 1,664 bit user memory capacities.

Glass Tag Vigo units are the latest RFID tags to contain HID Global’s Vigo technology, which delivers HF performance in an extremely compact chip and antenna assembly. Each Vigo unit is manufactured with patented HID Global direct bonding technology, allowing the secure attachment of antennas to chips without the bulk of added modules. This process enables Vigo units to deliver uncompromised HF performance in the smallest formats available.

“The potential for greater memory capacities and near-field readability is turning attention to HF solutions,” said Richard Aufreiter, director of product management for Identification Technologies with HID Global. “Vigo technology enables HID Global’s customers to take advantage of small form factor industrial Glass Tags that deliver performance and large memory capacities.”

By enabling the precise connection of ultra-thin copper wire RFID antennas to micro-sized chips, the company’s direct bonding process ensures Vigo units are thinner and smaller than comparable chip-and-antenna combos, providing excellent reliability and performance. By eliminating requirements for bulky module housings or additional soldering material, direct bonding also produces finished units that are more cost effective.

Glass Tag Vigo transponder features:

  • ISO/IEC 15693 and ISO/IEC 18000-3 compliant at 13.56 MHz
  • available in bio-glass cylinders of 0.08 inch diameter by 0.47 inch long (approximately 2 mm by 12 mm), and 0.12 inch by 0.51 inch (3 mm by 13 mm)
  • Deliver 1,664-bit user memory with 32 bits password protection option
  • Include a privacy mode option: When activated, that the tag will remain silent until a login command is received
