Checkpoint Systems' UNO Labels Combine RF EAS and Ucode 7 RFID Chip
Checkpoint Systems has announced dual RF-RFID labels that incorporate Ucode 7 chips from NXP Semiconductors. Unveiled in 2013 (see NXP Releases Ucode 7, a Faster and More Sensitive Chip), the Ucode 7 is an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID integrated circuit that increases read and write sensitivity (meaning the chip requires less power to be interrogated or encoded than previous NXP chips), and greater backscatter strength (to improve read performance).
The UNO series with the Ucode 7 chip requires less power for increased read and write sensitivity, Checkpoint says, providing faster performance in reading and encoding. It also provides greater broadband width, according to the company, enabling improved functionality internationally, where the UHF band used by a reader varies from region to region. Checkpoint reports that the Ucode 7 will perform reliably regardless of an RFID-tagged item's point of manufacture or destination location.
The UNO series is available now in both rectangle and square form factors. The labels work with a variety of pedestals and the Evolve RFID EAS Overhead Solution.
