All Data Matrix Symbols have the following components: *An L-shaped “finder pattern” forming a solid border on two sides. This lets the camera find the symbol in any orientation and, with our software, in any polarity (dark on light or light on dark - with many other software programs, you need to tell the reader which to look for) The pattern should have a “quiet zone” of unmarked space around it at least equal to 10% the sixe of the Data Matrix. *A Broken Border, also called a “timing pattern” which tells the software how many rows and columns to look for, therefore how many cells or “elements” to find. * A center “storage area” where the message is encoded.

Why Data matrix?• Withstands the harshest environment• Damage up to 20%+ of the symbol and recover 100%• Size is only limited by fidelity of marker• Can contain 100 times the data as the same space as a linear bar code• Can be read omni-directionally
Robustness of Data MatrixData Matrix can be any size 12 marking types subjected to low earth orbit environments Overhaul Test Manned Flight Test LEO Tests

Globally Unique ItemsUID is set of data elements marked on an item that is globally unique. Universal Product Code (UPC) Two cans of Coke form the same plant will show the same data on the UPC Serial Number Tracking Serial numbers are unique, but not outside of their enterprise. The serial numbers from one company can be the same as another company. Unique Identification Each item has its own Globally Unique Identifier (UII)
Digital VoiceThe Globally Unique ID, plus backend database lets the label speak!
