According to embedded RFID reader technology provider SkyeTek Inc., its M9 SkyeModule will support a full command set of EM4122 and EM4444 UHF ICs from EM Microelectronic (EM). In cooperation with EM, SkyeTek has completed deep reader/tag integration to support the full lines of commands of the EM ICs.

"EM Microelectronic is another example of an innovative organization we have cooperated with that further enhances our high performance and low-cost RFID reader technology," said Rob Balgley, CEO of SkyeTek. "By integrating with EM, we are better able to deploy RFID in applications such as anti-counterfeiting, asset tracking, and item-level inventory. This enables organizations of all kinds to benefit from RFID as more than just barcode, but rather as a networked technology."

EM offers a complete portfolio of read-only UHF RFID ICs that enable transponders for any application requiring long range and high speed identification. According to the company, the ICs are suitable for applications such as access control, airline baggage, anti-counterfeiting, handheld reading, item-level inventory, and supply chain management. The EM4122 and EM4444 UHF RFID ICs feature a factory programmed 64bit serial unique ID number, high reading data rates, user programmable and lockable memory, low voltage operation, easy antenna development and operate at temperatures between -40 to +85C.

Meanwhile, SkyeModule M9 says SkyeTek is the world's smallest, least expensive, globally compliant UHF RFID reader module. Approximately half the size of a business card, the M9 was designed for embedded UHF applications.
