STMicroelectronics has signed an agreement with Alien Technology Corp. to collaborate on the development and manufacturing of ICs for RFID tags.

As part of the cooperation, Alien will make available to STMicro its RFID IC and system design experience, and ST will provide RF engineering and IC development expertise, process technology and manufacturing capability. The goal of the collaboration is to design and produce a low-cost RFID IC that will reportedly cost less than a penny.

The cooperation also includes a multi-year volume supply agreement between the companies. The first product associated with this agreement is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2004.
