Tego releases world's first dual memory RFID chip

Tego Inc., the leading developer of high memory RFID chips, tags and software, released today the TegoChipTM DMTM (Dual Memory) for both Single-Record and Dual-Record tags as defined by the latest Air Transport Association's (ATA) Spec 2000, Chapter 9-5, 2013 standard for the aviation industry. TegoChip DM offers two distinct memory sections for two record types required on assets in aerospace tagging programs. One memory section is reserved for permanent, archival information, perfect for storing an asset's locked Birth Record where data is needed throughout an asset's lifetime. The second memory section is reserved for rewritable information, allowing users to update a Lifecycle Record to show a tagged item's condition as it changes over time. TegoChip DM is the only chip available that fully supports the Dual-Record tag type.

TegoChip DM was designed in response to the new ATA standard, published today, which has significant changes and new capabilities that OEMs, airframe manufacturers and airlines plan to use immediately. While the new standard already includes mandatory and conditional data elements allowing for efficient e-business exchange, it also includes features that allow proprietary and user-defined data entries, something that RFID adopters have long wanted on tagged parts. Only TegoChip DM allows for all these data elements, enabling aviation users to fully describe their assets and ensure compliance over a long lifetime, likely decades.

"Tego has played a leading role in the creation of the ATA standard and introducing a dual memory RFID chip is a first for the industry" said Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego, Inc. "In fact, TegoChip DM was developed in response to several customers finding that current 2Kbit RFID chips are generally not able to hold the ATA Dual-Record. Now there is a chip solution from Tego that provides compliance for the full range of data options allowed by the ATA." The newly released TegoChip DM compliments TegoChipTM MMTM (Multi-record Memory), which fully meets the Multi-Record format defined in Spec 2000-2013. Both TegoChip DM and TegoChip MM are available inside TegoTags, Tego's next generation of flight-certified RFID tags just released for the aviation industry.
