Internet of Things — From Vision to Reality

HSINCHU, Taiwan , April 14 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Connecting everyday items
to the internet through embedding short-range mobile transceivers enables a
new medium of communication between people and objects and between objects
themselves. Novel EPCglobal C1G2 RFID products, including USB Dongle UHF RFID
reader and Gen2 Tag with advanced capabilities, are presented allowing large-
scale integration of ubiquitous computing in a way triggering innovative ideas
of high value applications for the everyday life. Easy to install, one-click
downloadable software makes the technology utilizable for experts and novices
alike in a simple and fast way to access the Internet of Things.

MTI's game changing RFID USB Dongle (RU-888-100) based on
austriamicrosystems AS3992 high-performance, completely integrated silicon
solution provides a global, affordable, mobile and enabling EPCglobal C1G2
integrated UHF reader complete with embedded antenna. RF-iT Solution's
innovative detego(R) EXPRESS provides a powerful software module catalogue. A
variety of predefined interfaces to backend ERP or database systems can be
downloaded easily. The internet link module directly feeds product code
information into internet search engines. NXP's newly announced UCODE G2iL+
tag silicon provides advanced features for EPCglobal C1G2 tags, including the
industry's first tag level I/O signaling interfaces, enabling low cost passive
UHF RFID to be used in applications never before possible.

Come see our Internet of Things — from Vision to Reality demonstration at
MTI's booth (#355) during RFID Journal Live! 2010 in Orlando, Florida on April
14-16, 2010
and witness UHF passive RFID in a different, new and exciting way:

Smart Interfacing

Plug MTI's RFID USB Dongle (RU-888-100) with austriamicrosystems inside to
a USB port of your PC, download the detego(R) EXPRESS soft ware from RF-iT's
homepage and feed EPC data to any IT-Backend system of your choice. Through a
series of interfaces defined data (ID, timestamp, location) is provided to
seamlessly integrate into your IT backend systems like SAP, Navision, Sage and
numerous others.

Smart Advertising

Download the Internet link option from RF-iT's home page and optionally
feed EPC data to search engines like Google. Find out valuable information
about products and services by just presenting a tagged item to MTI's RFID USB
Dongle reader powered by austriamicrosystems with RF-iT's software application
seamlessly connecting EPC data to the World Wide Web.

Smart Theft Protection

The recently announced NXP Semiconductors UCODE G2iL+ presents many
exciting new features never be fore available from EPCglobal C1G2 compliant
UHF tag silicon. One application that the partners have leveraged from the
UCODE G2iL+ and demonstrate is the activation and deactivation of electronic
devices over the RFID link. By integrating NXP's tiny G2iL+ silicon into a
tag, and then embedding this within an object or item, or even a printed
circuit board (PCB) of a device such as a mobile phone, MP3 player or printer,
the product can be stored on the sales floor in a deactivated state minimizing
its value to potential shoplifters. Activation and downloading of relevant
software or firmware of the device can be done at home after proper
registration on the vendor's homepage, or alternatively at the POS, whichever
is most convenient.
