Tego and Smartrac have teamed up to develop RFID solutions that leverage Tego’s portfolio of ultrahighfrequency (UHF) chips and software to enhance Smartrac’s offering for the industrial sector. In addition, Smartrac will provide a selection of inlays and tags based on Tego’s rugged, high-memory UHF TegoChip to its global network of customers and partners.
Smartrac announced the immediate availability of a TegoChip version of its SmartracDipole inlay that, according to the two companies, is highly resistant to extreme temperatures, survives gamma radiation and electron beam sterilization, and can be tightly embedded into materials used for finished goods. While the TegoChip is available in four different versions, each with a different amount memory (2 kilobits, 1 kilobyte, 8 kilobytes or 24 kilobytes), the companies have not yet announced which versions of the TegoChip will be used for the new Smartrac Dipole tags.
By leveraging TegoChip technology, the companies report, Dipole inlays will enable digital data to survive on physical assets at the beginning of the product manufacturing process, allowing additional data storage throughout the product’s lifecycle—even spanning many decades. Smartrac inlays based on the TegoChip also lay the foundation for an array of solutions that will be developed using Smartrac’s Internet of Things platform, Smart Cosmos.
