Industry's first dual-frequency single-IC RFID labels presented at RFID Journal LIVE! 2015

A Confidex Smart Label including EM Microelectronic's new EPC/NFC dual-frequency IC, was presented at RFID Journal LIVE! 2015, in San Diego, California.

The new EM4423 IC allows new tagging solutions e.g. for logistics and retail as the data stored on the IC can be read not only by the EPC UHF RFID readers but also by NFC-enabled smartphones and tablets. While the EPC functionality provides fast data collection and long read ranges needed for automatized logistics, the NFC access can be used for adding further services to the solution, like marketing and advertising, providing access to product information on a manufacturer's website and ensuring product authenticity. The newly launched technology makes such solutions also cost-efficient for small retail businesses as no investment is needed for specialized RFID equipment and software. 

More information on the new EM4423 IC is available at EM Microelectronic website and RFID Journal:
