Alien Squiglette RFID White Wet Inlay (ALN-9730, Higgs-4) 

Powered by Alien®’s volume focused Higgs™4 UHF RFID IC and innovative Squiglette antenna design, the ALN9730 delivers industry leading EPC Gen 2 read and write performance in a narrower width than it’s bigger brother, the Squiggle®. ALN-9730 inlays are World Tag compliant, enabling consistent operation across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa. With its Higgs-4 core, the Squiglette delivers next generation performance and a rich feature set, yet is completely optimized for the highest volume enterprise, retail, and apparel applications. An optimized memory footprint includes a 32-bit TID, a 64-bit Unique TID for authentication and next generation serialization applications, a 128-bit EPC memory bank, 128-bits of user memory for distributed data applications, and password protected read and write support capabilities to prevent unauthorized viewing and modification of the tag’s data. Typical applications for the Squiglette include, but are not limited to, apparel hang tags, corrugated cases, palletplacard labels, shipping labels, asset management, file folder labels and applications on plastics.
