IXYS Intros Cylindrical LF Half-Duplex Read-Only RFID Tag

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division (ICD), a wholly owned subsidiary of IXYS, has announced the availability of the NCD1015ZP, a low-frequency (LF) half duplex, read-only RFID transponder. The 134.2 kHz transponder is suitable for applications including inventory management, ingress or egress discovery, real-time container tracking, manufacturing production flow control, vehicle identification, security access administration and high-value asset monitoring, according to the company.

The NCD1015ZP, which measures 50 millimeters (2 inches) in length and 17 millimeters (0.7 inch) in diameter, has 64 bits of pre-programmed or custom-programmed identification data storage and uses a 16-bit CRC error checking code generator to ensure data integrity. It supports the ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 standards.

IXYS' NCD1015ZP transponder
The passive transponder's integrated ferrite antenna enhances the tag's reading distance over what is obtained by non-ferrite antenna designs, IXYS reports, while the polyurethane encapsulating material boosts the mechanical robustness, making the tag suitable for deployment in harsh environmental conditions.

According to Nathan Zommer, IXYS' founder and CEO, the new product was designed and produced by IXYS San Sebastian, the company's European ASIC and RFID division. The transponder contains IXYS's proprietary RFID SOC IC and is sold through the firm's Integrated IC division and sales channels worldwide.
