Sauerlach, Germany, August 2, 2011 (euro adhoc) - TagStar Systems, an innovative
manufacturer of high quality RFID smart inlays and a business unit of Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE, Frankfurt: INV), today announced that it has expanded
its TOM™ (TagOnMetal) product line with several new tags that combine various
shielding elements and tag surfaces for use with emerging NFC (near field
communication) applications. 

TOM™ is a unique, patented magnetic shielding technology developed by TagStar
that allows a tag´s RFID signal to be read directly on metallic surfaces and
objects, overcoming the weakening effect of metal on RFID signals. The shielding
is available in various grades and in a wide array of form, size and tag
configurations. Due to their extreme flexibility and workability, the tags can
be used for automatic reading on metallic surfaces and objects without the need
for special configuring or tuning on a wide variety of NFC and other application
areas such as mobile payment, production process control and traceability,
counterfeit protection, and logistics and supply chain management. 

The new TOM™ tags are available in several versions and can include
customer-specific logos, images or text. The tags are available in glossy or
matte finish, and have a high degree of resistance to mechanical impact as well
as significant mechanical flexibility. They can be used for performance-critical
applications and in situations that require a combination of the highest
reliability, durability and print quality. Specially adapted combinations of
chips, antennae and sticker-thickness are available to meet customer

"Previously, our TOM™ tags consisted of a thin and smooth material compound
combined with different layouts or chips. To address expanding market
requirements, we have developed a variety  of different TOM™ tags that can be
used for an increased number of applications, such as e-payment on mobile
devices or the identification of metal parts and machines," stated Michael
Kober, Managing Director of Transponders for Identive Group.
The new chip-performance optimized shielding material pushes the tag to a
maximum reading performance without raising its price. TagStar holds basic IP
for on-metal applications, protected by granted and pending patents and the
registered brand name TOM™.
