Zelenograd factory "Micron" set a new view of its products — high-frequency contactless chip with self-adhesive labels — for RFID-aided system of accounting and control of library collections of the Siberian State Medical University in Tomsk.
Tag with a unique code to be pasted on books or CDs, and play the role of the library of forms — for them it will be possible to track the movement of each book, writing and reading the desired information from the chip. As explained Zelenograd.ru to "Micron", such labels are designed for marking various media in archives, libraries and museums — they develop a line of RFID-products companies that have so far been submitted transport cards, tickets or passes to the contactless chip.
In addition to RFID-tags in the composition of such automated library system also includes tags readers, smart shelves, software registration system and library cards with RFID-chips. Such systems are used for the optimization of the work of more than 150 libraries in the world — it can significantly reduce the cost and time cost of search and delivery of materials to monitor the location and security of funds and improve service to visitors, including through self-service counters.
Technology to build self-adhesive RFID-tags "Micron" mastered in 2010. While the volume of their deliveries at small businesses and is denominated in thousands of pieces, but experts "Micron" estimate this market is very promising and expect to increase sales. In addition, "Micron" is ready to produce labels with a chip, operating at a higher frequency and allows you to read information from a greater distance. Such tags can be used in different logistics systems. Test batches of these tags have already been tested customers. "In the near future, the only" library "tags may be 50 million. In addition, potential areas of use of RFID-tags and labels are the pharmaceutical market, the market of jewelry, marking mailings, archive and museum collections, "- says sales manager" Micron "Andrew Golushko.
At the beginning of January 2011 the company earned a laboratory for the development and measurement of RFID-products in all operating ranges of frequencies LF, HF, UHF — it is possible to model the antenna characteristics, test the consistency of the antenna and the chip, change the parameters of the product for a specific environment. Today, "Micron" has a complete production cycle of manufacturing RFID-products, from design to the finished chip card or tag that provides security and individual approach to each customer. Among the implemented since 2007, RFID-projects, which involved "Micron" — Muscovite social card, tickets Moscow Metro and State Unitary Enterprise "Mosgortrans", tickets for the UEFA Champions League and the concert of "Sunday".
In the future, RFID-tags "Micron" expect a large-scale application — in the technology of the future store (Future Store), the introduction of which recently stated "RUSNANO" Anatoly Chubais. In his view, the retail trade should soon become one of the most successful sources of mass demand for domestic microelectronics, which he needs the industry. "It is in this area, as in our opinion and in the opinion of many experts, RFID-technologies produce a massive coup. RFID-cards — this is, in fact, the technology that allows you to "know without seeing or approaching" that is, to manage modern shops online, where you can see the details of the movement of goods from warehouses to store shelves, the shelves — on trolley customers, and finally, when the output of the store customers. And the cashiers and cash has become obsolete: These cards will automatically write off the cost of customer acquisition of goods "- quoted Anatoly Chubais" Expert ".
Run the Future Store «RUSNANO" prepared jointly with the X5 Retail Group, owner of the largest retail chains in Russia, and the concern "Sitronics" partner "RUSNANO" in the field of microelectronics, designed by Russian factory chip 90 nm. "We have signed an agreement under which pledged to create a Future Store up to December 2012. Run-there technology will reduce the price of RFID-tags about three times, and the experience will lead to a further breakthrough in the country. The technology of this magnitude — it is, in fact, a complete replacement of the ordinary bar code, that is, a new production of billions of chips. According to our estimates, only the production of these chips in the financing of the project companies "RUSNANO" will reach $ 1.3 billion. Plus, this will require collateral equipment market, which will collectively have about $ 7.5 billion of new markets, "- said Chubais. Experts are more cautious and even skeptical — according to their data, while the spread of radio technology constrains the high cost of RFID-tags, as well as the lack of circulation in Russia make purchases over the Internet or bank cards. / Zelenograd.ru, 10.02.2011
