NXP UHF Solutions for Fashion, Retail and Electronics Markets

NXP Semiconductors, a RFID chips giant, has recently launched its newest UHF solutions for the electronics, retail, and fashion markets.


The UCODE G2iL+ and G2iL chips facilitate advanced read ranges that are based on a cost-effective, simple single antenna solution.

These chips also provide a range of industry-best features, such as password-safeguarded digital switch or data transfer, several privacy mode options, and tag tamper alarm. Due to its special features and outstanding performance, the UCODE G2iL series offers high cost-performance ratios, ultimate flexibility, and high read rates for authentication and item-level tagging for sophisticated RFID systems.

These chips provide port sensitivity of -18 dBm for a single antenna, needing only 50% of the RF power for activating the chip in comparison to earlier UCODE devices. This feature produces long read ranges for matching dual antenna port systems using equal-sized antennas. The UCODE G2iL+ additionally enhances READ and WRITE performance, resulting in a staggering -23 dBm when a power supply is connected to the chip.

These chips are based on the expertise of NXP Semiconductors in high-performance mixed signal technology, resulting in very low power consumption. The UCODE G2iL+ and UCODE G2iL features include Product Status Flag for use as an electronic article surveillance (EAS) alarm, and Read Protect to allow authorized access only. The UCODE G2iL+ also incorporates real read range reduction features. .

NXP Semiconductors’ General Manager, tagging and authentication, Chris Feige, informed that RFID tags and labels incorporated in consumer goods require long lead ranges that avoid the expense on a second serial system, along with an effective privacy safeguard and a tag tamper alarm.

Avery Dennison RFID’s Global Director of sales and marketing, Maggie Bidlingmaier, elaborated that the UCODE G2iL+ chips with versatile features are useful for electronics,  fashion and other markets like airline tags,  product authentication, and electronic vehicle tagging.

UPM Raflatac’s Vice President of marketing, RFID, Samuli Strömberg, added that the high performing UCODE G2iL+ and G2iL devices offer enhanced read rates with smaller inlays, resulting in better and more RFID solutions for a wide range of multiple end-use industries.
