Zebra Technologies Corp. announced that it has licensed Magellan Technology's phase jitter modulation (PJM) RFID technology. Under the license agreement, Zebra has the right to develop and commercialize RFID reader modules and tags that incorporate Magellan's PJM technology. Zebra said it plans on embedding the reader modules in its printer/encoder products this year.

"We have been collaborating with Magellan for many years, and their PJM technology has demonstrated performance advantages in meeting customer requirements in demanding applications like item level tagging," said Bob Cornick, vice president and general manager of RFID for Zebra. "Incorporating PJM capabilities into our high-frequency (HF) RFID line will provide customers with the products they need to achieve the high read accuracy and data transfer rates required in these applications."

Ratified in 2004, PJM is an HF RFID system specified in the ISO/IEC 18000-3 mode 2, RFID for Item Management standard. The technology is suitable for pharmaceutical e-Pedigree, document control, gaming and other applications.
