Super Thin Inlays

With a finished thickness of 200 microns, we are market leaders in super- thin transponder inlays.

Patented Intellichip Technology

With our ‘intellichip’ we lead the field in copper coil wound antenna’s with on-board, energy harvesting technology.

LED Status Indication

Combining our super-thin substrate and SES ‘intellichip’, we produce a 300 micron multi-LED inlay.

LEDTRAK

RFID LED Technology

Energy harvesting LED light status system

The Challenge

During a NFC card operation e.g. contactless payment, entry control, points top-up, etc., the card reader is often hidden from view and the consumer isn’t aware of the status of the transaction. Additionally, without seeing the terminal, the cardholder has no confirmation of a failed transaction leading them susceptible to fraud. The challenge was to create a status indication on the card itself whereby the card user gets real-time transaction status e.g. ‘In Progress’, ‘Failed’ or ‘Completed’

The Design

Our system incorporates three of our specialist technologies – Thin and Flat (TIN) inlay, Energy Harvesting, and Intelligent Chip. The 300 micron thin inlay is sandwiched between the outer layers of the card resulting in a perfectly flat surface that is suitable for high-quality printing. The energy for the LED’s is harvested from the card reader itself eliminating the need for a power supply.

The Result

We produce a card inlay that indicates to the cardholder the status of the transaction or operation. The card incorporates a variable number of LED’s that illuminate according to the pre-programming of the product e.g. red – transaction failed, yellow – in progress, green – transaction completed. With a thickness of just 300 microns, the inlay can replace the ‘standard’ inlay between the outer layers of a credit card, entry card or rewards card, without increasing the thickness. The LED’s are not visible when not lit.

INTELTEX

Smart Textiles

Fabric interlaced antennas for textile connectivity

Smart Textiles?

 Any kind of textile or clothing with integral sensors that can be used in a host of applications such as sport, tele-medicine, localised heating and tracking, or management of uniforms and laundry.

The Challenge

To develop flexible and thin, waterproof, non-magnetic weavable antenna’s capable of withstanding high temperatures in all environments. Antenna’s compatible with conventional weaving machinery, high-production capacity, excellent RF performance over a wide band-width, durable material.

The Result

We produce patented durable RFID textile antenna’s with high-production capacity and excellent RF performance over a wide band-width. They are suitable for a range of applications.

WEARTX

Smart Wearables

For people on the move

Smart Wearables?

Connected devices that are worn by a user for applications such as fitness tracking, GPS tracking, access control, communication and contactless payments. These are available in several forms – watches, wrist bands, rings, smart clothing, etc.

The Challenge

To design a smart wearable antenna that in addition to standard wearables, could be encased in a standard wristwatch with steel casing and bezel. It should be equipped with NFC for access control and mobile payments. The biggest challenge was to overcome the shielding of the metal case to achieve an acceptable reading distance and fit a waterproof solution in a very small, available space.

The Product

A high-gain antenna tuned for a watch casing, minimum foot print, low profile chip assembly and electro-magnetic shielding encased in a waterproof assembly.  An antenna that can be incorporated into an existing watch body with no increase in thickness, a compliant reading distance and NFC payment process.

Energy Harvesting Technology

Green Energy Circuitry

Energy Harvesting?

There has been an exponential growth in data transfer between connected portable devices but these all require power. Our challenge was to produce flexible, robust and waterproof energy harvesting circuitry for tough environments, that do not require power. The harvesting allows the user to concentrate on data collection whilst the power for the transponder is harvested from the reader. 

The Product

A copper coil wound antenna with on-board, energy harvesting chip. Integration in waterproof foil for maximum protection and flexibility. All this in a system less than 300 microns thick. Our LEDTRAK technology can be added to this if required.

UM200

200 Micron Thin & Flat Inlay

Ultra-thin inlays for card applications

UM200 is our patented ultra-thin and ultra-flat antenna technology that can be incorporated into products which require a high-performance. A rugged antenna that does not add to the thickness of the product and does not impede the surface for high quality printing, e.g. ticketing, credit and access cards, casino playing cards. We have developed this patented technology and can now offer durable, high-performance antennas down to a thickness of 200 microns.

200 microns

Patented ultra-thin and ultra-flat antenna technology (TIN) at a thickness of 200 microns.
