MEDIA TIP SHEET – EXHIBITOR ANNOUNCEMENTS
Active RFID Systems Active RFID Systems, Inc. (ARS), a leading provider of battery-
powered radio frequency and infrared supply chain management
systems for total asset tracking, in-transit visibility, security, and data
networking over all mobile devices., and Broadcom, Inc., a global
leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications have
announced their collaboration in the development and sales of a WiFi
(802.11.b/g)-enabled radio frequency identification (RFID) tag that will
be used to track assets directly in a WiFi Network Enterprise System.
The new tag offers 1-2 years of battery life and is interoperable with
any existing WiFi network.
Under the terms of the agreement, ARS will incorporate the Broadcom
chipset into this WiFi tag and will manufacture and support the finished
tag product. Broadcom will support the hardware, firmware and
ADC ADC will showcase its TrueNet® Midspan Power-over-Ethernet
Controller at RFID World 2006 (Booth #1123). The award-winning PoE
solution allows users to easily and cost-effectively upgrade their
network to power RFID readers.
ADC’s TrueNet Midspan PoE Controller injects IEEE 802.3af compliant
power onto any standard Ethernet cable, allowing users to utilize their
entire existing infrastructure including Ethernet switches. As enterprise
networks deploy RFID readers, delivering power to these devices can
pose a challenge.
The ADC TrueNet Midspan PoE Controller allows RFID readers to be
strategically situated in locations throughout the enterprise that
optimize effectiveness, including ceilings.

Appleton Using direct thermal technology in warehouse, distribution and supply
chain label applications, whether RFID-enabled or standard, eliminates
multiple operational inefficiencies associated with traditional thermal
Because direct thermal is ribbonless, it is much less prone to
electrostatic discharges and therefore is an ideal method for printing
RFID labels. It also produces pristine printed images because there is
no ribbon scuffing or marking at the “chip bump.”
Also, when exposed to high levels of industrial lighting, Appleton’s
exclusive LightSafe™ Technology (patent pending) keeps direct
thermal labels white for two or more years—long after thermal transfer
labels have noticeably yellowed.

Datacon Technology The price of an RFID tag is currently the essential benchmark for
GmbH (member of BE acceptance of this technology. There is talk of the so-called "nickel
N.V.) tag", a fully operative, passive RFID transponder tag which will be
available for 5 US cents in 2008. In order to get closer to this ambitious
Booth #1231 cost objective, enablers must appear in all areas of the technology
range. Datacon will make an ambitious contribution to this. Datacon
started very successfully with its RFID technology and could require
new customers in USA and Asia. The RFID production line can be

then writes a pallet tag and attaches the tag to the ship-ready pallet.
In the pallet receive demonstration, the pallet moves into the reader’s
field. The field is compared to a list of expected ASNs. If the ASNs are
successfully matched, the pallet is received. If pallet or carton tags do
not match, the pallet is rejected for exception processing.

Wise Media Technology Wise Media Technology (WMT) introduces the Finger & Grain
Communication System (FGC). This new breakthrough RFID system
dramatically advances the usage of RFID applications. While wireless
RFID tags are becoming ubiquitous, high costs and limited distances
have hampered the use of passive and active tags in many
applications. WMT has overcome this problem by developing a unique
progressive communications method for using hybrid RFID tags called
GRAIN. It uses no batteries, yet combines the features of both passive
and active tags. This allows real time precision data collection. FGC
offers the industries first truly low-cost high quality RFID solution.
