Alien Squiggle Inlay

ALN-9640 / ALN-9740 / ALN-9840

The Alien Technology® Squiggle® inlay is a high-performance, general purpose RFID inlay for use in a wide variety of applications.

ALN-9640 “Squiggle®” – Higgs®-3

For Squiggle applications that demand more on-tag storage of up to 800 NVAM bits. This enables storage of data for the purpose of avoiding additional network access that would otherwise be required for data retrieval.

ALN-9740 “Squiggle®” – Higgs®-4

For Squiggle applications that demand the most optimized solution for high-volume applications or other Higgs 4 advantages. Higgs 4 Squiggle offers BlastWrite™ mass-encoding for programming multiple tags at the same time, QuickWrite™ for writing a complete memory bank in one command and ultimate write-sensitivity which together provide the fastest mass-market tag encoding solution. Higgs 4 is provided pre-programmed with the ultimate enterprise-wide serialization scheme which enables efficient distributed mass-encoding of tags.

ALN-9840 “Squiggle®” – Higgs®-EC

Squiggle inlays are now enhanced with the reliability, robustness and readability of the new Higgs-EC IC along with all the capabilities and features of the Higgs-4 version. The Sentinel Memory within the Higgs-EC is a unique error-correcting architecture that fixes single bit errors and detects rare dual bit issues. The Higgs-EC supports over 200,000 write cycle capability, two times that of other devices on the market today. Lastly, Squiggle tags with Higgs-EC have best-in-class read and write larger sensitivity that allows larger read & write distances to be achieved and more rapid reading and encoding.
