HP and Philips push global RFID standard

HP and Philips have teamed up to promote the adoption of a worldwide standard for RFID (radio frequency identification) systems.

HP and Philips have teamed up to promote the adoption of a worldwide standard for RFID (radio frequency identification) systems.

The companies are using their RFID expertise to push the use of the EPC Class 1 Generation 2 specification, also known as Gen2.

Gen2 has already been submitted to the ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation). The pair hope to replace earlier standards and end technical differences among RFID systems used in different parts of the world.

With Gen2, a single RFID tag can already be moved around the world and be read by most readers, said HP and Philips.

Philips manufactures Gen2 RFID chips and systems, and sees HP’s services business as an ideal way to encourage their use among companies.

HP will use Philips Gen2 solutions at a testing facility in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
