With millions of ICs in the market, ICODE is a market leader for intelligent and high-frequency (HF) label technologies. Along with the original ICODE hardware, the ICODE family now includes ICODE DNA and ICODE Slix models, including increased protection and additional functionality.
The proximity RFID solution accompanies the NFC Forum Tag Type 5 specifications, ISO/IEC 15693 & ISO/IEC 18000-3 compatible. With long-range scanners, ICODE has an operating range of up to 1.5 m.
ICODE product variants have various useful features, such as EAS protection, Application Family Identifier protection, memory management, and confidentiality. They are predominantly used in library management, identification of consumables and accessories, brand security and anti-counterfeiting, supply chain management and visibility in inventory and control, and industrial facilities.
The ICODE SLIX model is a specialized chip for smart label applications like databases, material encryption in industries like pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and beverages, as well as quality control in different sectors. This IC is the third generation of a smart label IC product group based on ISO specifications ISO/IEC 15693 & ISO/IEC 18000-3.
Once attached to a very convenient and straightforward patch antenna, contactless power and data transmission are possible. The ICODE SLIX IC can be used without having a direct line of sight up to a distance of 1.5 m. (gate width). And another benefit is that you won’t need an extra battery or charger.
The ICODE SLIX-2 model is the most recent addition to NXP’s SLIX product line. The chip is completely compatible with SLIX and provides increasing customer memory size and new great features and efficiency. They’re also common in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
In a variety of industries, intelligent labels and packaging are assisting and supporting the company.
The ICODE DNA is a cutting-edge HF tag IC designed for brand security applications that involve a long-read distance and cryptography verification. First and foremost, this encryption is built on a 128-bit AES key safely stored on ICs. Information can be transferred at up to 53 kbit/s using the high-speed RF communications channel.
The ICODE DNA has an intelligent anti-collision feature that allows several tags to work in the field simultaneously. The security algorithm picks each tag at random and uses three 128-bit locks to guarantee AES Crypto-core for tag/mutual authorization. ICODE DNA tags are commonly used in inventory and supply chain management, as well as last-mile communications.
The ICODE DNA contains many protection and privacy features, including UID, Originality key, EAS, and AFI usability.
The ICODE ILT is a specialized chip that supports the ISO 18000-3 mode 3 RFID format for passive, intelligent tags and markings. It is particularly well-suited to systems that need accurate detection and high anti-collision levels.
The ICODE ILT is a member of NXP Semiconductors’ ICODE product range. It enables the widespread adoption of HF RFID technology for passive tags and labeling to be heavily marketed.
There is no need for an external power supply with an ICODE ILT-based label/tag.
The power source is produced by inductive power transfer from the reading device via the antenna circuit, and the device clock is derived from the magnetic field. Its technology is also used in toys and board games too.
