New performance levels in Retail and Supply-Chain applications
Designed especially for retail and supply-chain applications, Miniweb particularly benefits from the outstandingly high performance and resulting fast inventory capabilities of the Impinj M730 and M750 ICs. With its small form factor, the Impinj M700-powered Miniweb delivers on the promise of small, universal RAIN RFID inlays and tags that can be attached to, or embedded in, in nearly any item in any operating frequency worldwide.
Smartrac’s new Miniweb inlays and tags are available with Impinj M730 and M750 ICs. The Impinj M730 has 128-bit EPC memory and the Impinj M750 IC has 96-bit EPC memory plus 32-bit user memory. Both new Impinj ICs provide increased sensitivity, improved readability, and advanced features offering new solutions for loss prevention, with frictionless self-checkout and embedded tagging enabling seamless product returns. Both ICs are compatible with the GS1 UHF Gen2v2 protocol which ISO/IEC standardized as 18000-63.
New manufacturing processes for higher throughput and improved sustainability
Smartrac has adopted new manufacturing processes using state-of-the-art IC attachment technologies and equipment to fully leverage Impinj’s 300mm wafer design, which yields twice as many ICs per wafer as conventional 300mm wafers. By applying leading-edge IC attachment technologies that use fast-cure sealing silicone (ACP), Smartrac can rapidly and significantly expand its RFID inlay and tag manufacturing capacity and operating throughput to provide very fast product availability. At the same time, the company minimizes the use of resources with an inherently positive effect on sustainability, and ensures the superior product quality for which it is widely known.
“In a close collaborative effort with Impinj and our state-of-the-art RFID development centers we have managed to industrialize the new Impinj M730 and M750 ICs, adapt our manufacturing processes and incorporate new technologies in our successful Miniweb inlay design in a very short timeframe. This all underlines our innovation and technology leadership, and further strengthens the ties with our long-term supplier and strategic market partner, Impinj,” said Dr. Juha Virtanen, Vice President Research & Development at Smartrac.
Miniweb inlays and tags equipped with Impinj M730 and M750 ICs are available in sample quantities as of now, and in high volumes in early Q2 2020.
