NXP has announced the UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL, its next-generation smart label ICs featuring high performance over the entire UHF frequency range. The new UCODE RFID chips offer reliable operation across very long read ranges and in dense reader environments.

The UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL provide scalable EPC numbers up to 240bit, promising flexibility when using RFID in multiple applications requiring different EPC codes and storing additional application data. In addition, the UCODE G2XM provides 512bit user memory, by far the largest dedicated user memory on the market today.

"Our newest UCODE devices are best-in-class for passive smart tags and labels, incorporating advanced capabilities requested by our customers, and have been fully optimized at the NXP RFID Reference Design Center in Austria," said Jan-Willem Reynaerts, general manager, RFID, NXP Semiconductors. "The UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL demonstrate unsurpassed UHF performance in real-world scenarios for supply chain management and logistics. Our latest smart label ICs provide reliable operation on different materials, across long distances in environments where multiple tags and labels are read simultaneously."

The NXP UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL are specifically designed for ease of inlay assembly and high volume/yield assembly lines. The sensitivity of the ICs allows for broadband antenna designs allowing inlets to cover the complete UHF band from 840- to 960MHz. Both the UCODE G2XM and the UCODE G2XL are EPCglobal Class 1 Generation 2 (C1 G2) 1.2.0 compliant. NXP offers these ICs as wafers, on straps and in surface-mount devices to its customers.

Orders for production volumes of the UCODE G2XM and UCODE G2XL are now being accepted.
