TagStar Launches UHF Inlay with Three-Dimensional Readability for Industrial and Logistics Applications

SAUERLACH, Germany, August 9, 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 its new "Quadro" UHF
(ultra high frequency) RFID inlay, which offers three-dimensional readability
for industrial and logistics applications. 

Many RFID transponders only function reliably along one (height from surface)
dimension. TagStar´s new "Quadro" design provides full three-dimensional
readability, which offers greater flexibility for logistics and industrial
applications where materials may be placed or stacked at differing heights or
depths. TagStar´s unique and patent-pending technology combines the benefits of
long-range readability with support for all UHF chips and their specific
features, making it compatible with the multiple different frequencies and
standards used in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

"Sales of transponder inlays and inlay-based products are a very important part
of our business. The new Quadro inlay demonstrates our ability to develop and
produce high-quality products for our customers that support emerging
applications such as automotive parts tagging or pharmaceutical tracking,"
stated Michael Kober, Managing Director of Transponders for Identive Group. 

Transponder inlays are small electronic devices consisting of a microchip bonded
to an antenna, and function as the heart of an RFID credential such as a smart
tag, label, sticker or card. RFID is rapidly replacing traditional
machine-readable identification technologies in applications such as production
process control and traceability, counterfeit protection, and logistics and
supply chain management. 

In the past, the expansion of inlay readability along additional dimensions
could only be achieved by using multiple antenna and chip configurations.
TagStar´s new Quadro inlay overcomes this limitation and allows the use of any
chip with a single radio frequency configuration. It also enables readers to
reduce their UHF emissions by up to 50%, making it easier and less costly to
meet FCC regulatory requirements. The Quadro inlay further offers high
resistance against detuning due to its large bandwidth but still allows
excellent far-field performance due to its lower power consumption. The product
is approximately 80x80 mm and can be supplied on-reel as inlay or a ready-to-use
label with customized artwork such as logos or text.
