Sirit Inc., a provider of RFID technology, introduced the INfinity 196, a high-frequency 13.56MHz reader module designed for use in cashless payments, secure transactions, access control, identify or product verification and item level tracking in supply chain applications.

The multi-protocol embedded RFID reader has been designed in a compact form factor allowing for integration into handheld portable data terminals, mobile computers, cashless payment and fixed terminals, and other OEM devices. The product supports commonly used protocols including ISO 15693 and Philips I-Code while also supporting secure, encrypted applications using ISO 14443, Mifare Ultralight and Mifare Classic.

The product's design incorporates Philips' RC632 chip facilitating secure encrypted tag to reader communication used in many cashless payments. Support for multiple levels of the Mifare protocol is native to the first release of the product. The 196 has also been designed for field firmware upgradeability and has the ability to support Mifare DESFire, the Philips contactless tag and other applications.

The INfinity 196 is targeted at industrial mobile computers and fixed mount terminals in supply chain applications, robotics, point-of-sale terminals, vending machines and medical equipment. This device is available in both production board versions and as part of a system developer's kit that allows OEM and third party developers to exercise the capability of the module and integrate it into a variety of end user products.

Sirit's full range of INfinity series OEM modules support low (134.2/125kHz), high (13.56MHz) and ultra high (902MHz to 928MHz) frequencies and multiple protocols, including EPCglobal Class 0/0+/1 and Gen 2.
