Alien Introduces Two New UHF Passive Inlays – Wonder Dog ALN-9768 and SIT H4

Posted April 9, 2014

Alien has introduced two new UHF passive RFID inlays. The Wonder Dog ALN-9768 is a high-performance, no compromise inlay where size (3.3 x 0.9” / 86 x 23mm) is less of an issue than the desire for optimal read sensitivity with high levels of backscatter. At the other extreme, Alien also announced a Higgs4 IC near-field inlay(0.47 x 0.35” / 12 x 9mm) that targets applications requiring short read distances and where space is constrained.

The Wonder Dog is truly a general purpose, high-performance inlay. While this inlay can be used on most surfaces, the inlay provides unusually good read and write performance for a standard thickness inlay when mounted close to radio frequency (RF) reflective surfaces such as metals.
