Fujitsu Ltd has developed the world's first 64Kbyte UHF-band RFID tag with high-capacity FRAM, featuring memory capacity sufficient to store large volumes of aircraft part and maintenance history data, while supporting different radio frequencies to enable traceability worldwide. Fujitsu anticipates that this 64Kbyte UHF-RFID tag will transform global aircraft maintenance operations. Frequency supported by the device ranges from 860- to 960MHz.

Equipped with 64Kbytes of FRAM, said to be the world's highest capacity today, the Fujitsu RFID tag will enable highly efficient global aircraft maintenance operations by ensuring precise and rapid management of each aircraft part. The tag complies with the EPC global Class 1 Generation 2 standard supporting different radio frequencies, which vary by region, and thus provides for global traceability. Furthermore, the tag can be mounted on metal surfaces and meets fire retardancy standards by satisfying the testing requirements for SAE AS5678 specifications, which are required for high-quality aviation parts.

Fujitsu's UHF-RFID tags deliver high-speed data writing capability and high durability, while also offering state-of-the-art security functions such as password management for each part of the memory area.

The device measures 2-inch x 1-inch (50.8mm x 25.4mm x 6.22mm) and weighs 13.6 g.

Sales of the RFID tag will begin in Q1 08 (between April and June).
