NXP Semiconductors announced heavy demand for its EPCglobal Inc.-certified Generation 2 (Gen 2) UHF ICs from companies in China.

According to the press release, UCODE EPC G2, which supports both EPC and ISO/IEC 18000 6c, is widely supported by manufacturers within the RFID industry, enabling continued global deployment of RFID technology. With broad deployment of the EPC Gen2 standard, different RFID labels and readers are fully interoperable in different global regulatory environments. As a result, suppliers and manufacturers throughout the supply chain can realize significant improvements in performance, cost and reliability, as well as easy migration to future EPC classes.

NXP has received significant orders from Asian inlet and label manufacturers, including Invengo Information Technology Co. Ltd. China (formerly known as YWGIT), which has placed an initial order for 'double-digit' million UCODE EPC Gen2 ICs, the company said. Invengo was the first company to offer RFID solutions in China and it is now a leader in China's RFID market. Invengo's adoption of NXP EPC Gen2 and ISO/IEC 18000 6c compliant ICs will ensure widespread use throughout China, as well as other Asian countries.

"NXP RFID ICs, compliant to EPC Gen2 and ISO/IEC 18000 6c, are reliable and high-performance solutions," said Yusuo Xu, chairman, Invengo. "We selected NXP technology following Wal-Mart's RFID mandate, which has adopted Gen2 technology to take advantage of its high performance and added security features."
