SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 10, 2006— Intelleflex Corporation, the Intelligent RFID Platform Company, today announced the availability of its InfoSure(TM) single-chip tags and I-Beam(TM) multi-protocol readers. Intelleflex's battery-assisted passive technology offers the best of both worlds between passive and active RFID technology, with a breakthrough performance and a price of five-dollars a tag in production volumes - five-to-ten times lower than competitive active tags.
Intelleflex's InfoSure tags and the I-Beam reader are
multi-protocol, ensuring global interoperability using EPC standards.
InfoSure tags can be used as passive C1G2 tags with any other C1G2
reader or used in the battery-assisted passive mode at long ranges
with the I-Beam reader. InfoSure tags offer up to 100-meter read/write
range in free space, which translates to 100 percent read/write
reliability at standard working ranges in industrial environments.
They also offer 64 kb user memory, which is segmented into 1 kb blocks
so they can be independently protected for read/write access through
The I-Beam reader can read any EPC C1G2 tag as well as the Class 3
InfoSure tag. Initial product shipments of both the tags and readers
are targeted for asset management, yard management, manufacturing and
zonal access control applications.
"We have had the chance to work with the pre-production version of
the InfoSure tags and the I-Beam reader, and were impressed with the
range of additional value that they bring," said Baldev Nair, RFID
practice manager for Tata Consultancy Services. "We believe
Intelleflex products can meet the needs of many of our global
customers in retail and manufacturing by filling the huge
price-performance gap between active and passive technologies."
"We are excited to start shipping products to our customers," said
Ashish Asthana, vice president of marketing and product strategy for
Intelleflex. "Customers benefit from the compelling business value
that we bring to address their needs. For example, customers in
logistics and manufacturing will utilize the long-range capabilities
in battery-assisted mode for real-time inventory of assemblies in
their warehouses, and the ability to automatically generate a proof of
shipment when they are shipped. Other customers in manufacturing and
maintenance operations will utilize Intelleflex ICs in passive mode
and realize significant benefits from having actionable manufacturing
and repair history data in the 64Kb user memory at the point of use."
Intelleflex's InfoSure single-chip tags and I-Beam 500
multi-protocol readers will be available for preview and demonstration
at EPCglobal next week in Los Angeles. Pre-production shipments will
start in October. General availability will be in approximately eight
