HID Global

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that its Identification Technologies division is shipping the IN Tag™ 300 8KB RFID transponder, which is ideal for memory intensive applications. IN Tag™ 300 8KB incorporates ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) technology from Fujitsu Semiconductor. This accelerates data access close to the maximum high frequency (HF) speed; endures billions of read and write cycles; and withstands gamma radiation up to 50 KGray to survive e.g. medical sterilisation processes.

 “The new IN Tag 300 8KB delivers the optimum in speed and memory size for the ISO/IEC 15693 protocol,” said Richard Aufreiter, director of product management, Identification Technologies with HID Global. “This and the radiation resistance make the tag ideal for demanding automation, medical or nuclear applications.”

With FRAM – providing write cycles up to 33,000-times faster than conventional EEPROM memories – the latest IN Tag transponder enables much faster accesses than EEPROM memory-based tags. The FRAM technology also allows approximately 1,000,000 times more write cycles than EEPROM, making it ideal for applications with fast moving targets and frequent write accesses like sensoring or data logging.

The proven IN Tag housings protect the integrated chips from exposure to high-temperature and high-pressure conditions, and the FRAM configuration shields contents from irradiation that would wipe the contents of other chips.

“We are excited that HID Global is integrating our new high-memory HF FRAM chip into the IN Tag 300 8KB,” said Jozsef Miho, product marketing manager for Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe. “The new 8KB chip is ideal for memory-hungry applications and we are pleased to see HID Global among the first vendors to produce industrial strength RFID tags utilising our chip.”

The IN Tag 300 8KB transponder is ideal for tagging medical supplies and equipment subject to sterilisation via autoclave, gamma ray and X-ray irradiation. Temperature and pressure resistance also makes the tag a perfect fit for industrial applications in harsh environments like manufacturing lines.

As with all IN Tag passive contactless RFID transponders, the IN Tag 300 8KB is highly water, chemical and shock resistant, ATEX certified for use in explosive environments, they withstand peak temperatures up to 285° F (140° C) and are UL94-HB flame resistant while they are still food contact compatible. Alternatively, FRAM products with 2KB memory are available from HID Global in IN Tag or Piccolino e-unit form-factors for less memory-intense applications.
