December 3, 2004—Auckland, New Zealand-based startup Sandtracker has edged closer to the successful production of 5-cent RFID tags. It has done so by keeping functionality to a minimum and cutting down on the use of silicon in the tag design. Currently available for just under 10 New Zealand cents, or about 7 US cents at press time, the RFID tag technology is being tested by five companies. While the technology is cheaper than many alternatives and functions well in environments that are typically challenging for RFID, its stripped-down engineering results in small storage capacity and other design particulars that are not EPC standard-compliant. The company reportedly has plans to work with EPCglobal to earn a compliance rating, but until that happens, the application for which cheap RFID tags are most demanded - supply chain management - will remain the purview of EPC-compliant tag producers.
