They are targeted at market segments such as food and beverage, personal and home care, pharmaceutical and healthcare. They also support the introduction of digital interactivity into physical toys and games.

Developed using PragmatIC’s unique platform of patented technologies, ConnectICs deliver connectivity solutions at the lowest cost point in the market, claims the manufacturer, delivering an ultra-thin and flexible solution that can be embedded into a wide range of substrates, including paper and plastic.

The devices reduce the complexity of inlays by using single layer antennas, delivering a further step down in cost to brand owners and retailers. These ConnectICs are extremely attractive for high-volume fast-moving consumer goods (FMCGs) and other mass market applications, with electronic connectivity no longer limited to high value, luxury items.

The PR1100 product series facilitates rapid detection of objects when one or more low-cost custom readers are integrated into the system. Designed for proximity identification applications, these FlexICs are suitable for applications including hierarchical inventory management, item identification and tracking, supply chain assurance and brand authentication.
