NXP Semiconductors has announced that the Max Planck Institute for European History of Law Library has chosen the Longlife RFID labels from Bibliotheca RFID Library Systems, based on the recently launched ICODE SLI-SY chip. This latest ICODE product offers a guaranteed 40-year data lifespan to produce a robust solution that offers long-term data integrity.

The German research institute will begin the rollout of the new RFID library solution for its archive of 320,000 assets.

"The Max Planck Institute Library in Frankfurt houses one of the most important collections of historic primary resources and secondary literature about the development of European Law," said Sigrid Amedick, library director of the Max-Planck-Institute for European History of Law. "It is therefore essential that we maintain the collection for future generations. This is why it's essential that the library's stock maintenance system should have longevity and be based on trusted technology that is secure and easy to use."

Designed specifically for use within library and archive environments, the ICODE SLI-SY plays a central role in Bibliotheca's new Archive and Longlife Labels, which are suitable for academic libraries, government, legal and medical archives.

"Bibliotheca has created a solution which fully complements the benefits of the ICODE SLI-SY," said Rainer Lutz, RFID marketing manager, NXP. "Both the Archive and Longlife labels are perfect packaging solutions for our new RFID IC. While standard library labels have been proven and reliable on 500 million books and media worldwide, ICODE SLI-SY based labels are ideal for academic libraries, government, legal and medical archives requiring a guaranteed data integrity of at least 40 years. Having the Max-Planck Institute for European History of Law choose the solution clearly demonstrates the senior position NXP and Bibliotheca hold within the Library RFID solutions market place."

Bibliotheca RFID Library Systems has initiated the development of a solution that respond to the needs of contemporary libraries. "By the end of last year, we determined that the chip technology and production has been enhanced to enable a solution with improved data retention. To get our product idea realized we successfully committed our leading partners in label production with NXP," stated Uwe Brandenburg, Bibliotheca's chief operating officer.
