Raising the standard in half duplex (HDX) transponder technology, Texas Instruments has announced what the company claims to be the world's smallest half-duplex radio frequency identification (RFID) mini-transponders that enable customers to embed tags into smaller objects across a broader range of applications.
The 12mm TRPGR30TGC and TRPGP40TGC glass encapsulated mini-transponders are ready-to-use and 100 percent backwards compatible with all of TI's RFID software and readers including power modules, control modules and micro readers. The TRPGP40TGC is programmable according to ISO 11784/11785 global livestock ID standards so customers can create compatible products that can be read by 134.2-kHz ISO-compliant receivers/infrastructure worldwide.
The mini-transponders are durable enough for use in applications including tool, medical instrument, package and inventory tracking and safe enough for use in fish and livestock tracking and pet identification and are expected to work for up to 30 years.
