Universal low-power RAIN RFID chip

May 10, 2017 // By Julien Happich
NXP Semiconductors' UCODE 8 RAIN RFID chip platform is a universal RAIN RFID chip designed to ensure high inventory accuracy on all retail product categories through best-in-class read sensitivity.

The auto adjust feature ensures a consistently high performance read-rate across different product materials and global deployments. The feature lowers cost by reducing the need for dedicated regional antenna designs. The automated error correction for memory data also improves data accuracy and ensures that memory data content will remain unchanged over the entire product lifecycle. Its dual-axis glue spacer design and large area gold contact pads can reduce failure rates caused by mechanical stress at the antenna contacts and thereby eliminate performance degradation. Additionally the unique brand identifier feature validates product authentication and helps identify fakes to combat grey market activities.
