NXP offers leading edge RFID chip technology designed to fulfill the requirements of a wide range of applications across numerous vertical markets:
Systems for Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) have been around for many years. Inductive loops, image recognition solutions and active RFID have all been tried and deployed. However, in an application where reliable, cost effective and secure identification of vehicles in various traffic situations is essential, secure passive UHF proves to be absolute choice number one
NXP introduces an easy registration and authorization enforcement method for electronic-controlled equipment— a process that requires little human interaction, uses low cost electronic parts, and benefits regulatory bodies, businesses and consumers.
The unique capability of RFID technology to identify individual items opens up a wealth of opportunities in inventory and supply chain management including: greater visibility to item location, increased ability to track and trace, improved inventory accuracy, better consumer protection, and decreased shrinkage.
The term ‘Industry 4.0’ refers to the 4th industrial revolution and the implementation of the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) in factories. CPS refers to creating a virtual copy of the monitored physical processes to automate and control the production, via the means provided by the Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Services (IoS).
Brand owners are facing more challenges than ever in trying to protect their intellectual property given widespread counterfeiting. Counterfeit products not only dilute corporate profits and government taxation revenue, they also increase the possibility of harming consumers and damaging the brand’s reputation. RFID technology offers increased protection against copying and tampering by providing a means to uniquely identify products in a tamper-resistant way.
Because passive RFID tags do not require a power source and can be embedded just about anywhere, NXP’s Near Field Communication (NFC) RFID technology opens up new and innovative ways to interact with consumers, encourage their curiosity, and create marketing buzz. For example, interactive print (with NFC tags embedded in a page) creates a print to digital bridge, and NFC tags embedded in toys bridge the physical and online gaming worlds.
By embedding an RFID chip and antenna into the printed circuit board (PCB), manufacturers of consumer and industrial electronic devices can RFID-enable their products very early in the production cycle. The convergence of RFID and electronics supports unique identification of every product, providing additional benefits throughout the product’s life, such as wireless configuration management, brand protection via easy product authenticity verification, and more efficient returns logistics and service, which result in increased consumer satisfaction while protecting a company’s bottom line.
Introducing RFID into animal identification boosts efficiency by helping to automate farms and facilities. Giving you full control of your livestock, RFID is also very important in cases of disease outbreaks—one of many reasons governments are mandating RFID solutions for livestock.
