4 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication 4 What is Chipless RFID? A “Read-Only” system (no chip, no memory) Bits of data based on a new printed symbology Potential to produce the lowest cost RFID tag Capabilities for printing directly and covertly on products or packaging Frequencies above UHF The RFID Connection Ability to read without line-of-sight at any angle. i.e. through packaging Ability to read at extended distances Ability to read multiple tags with anti-collision

6 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication 6 SARcode ™ Development Vision  Develop a low-cost Chipless RFID tag Printed directly and covertly on products or packaging RFID tag price: under one cent  Major advantages over barcodes or chip based RFID: Easily Detectable: Does not require line-of-sight Lower Cost: Requires less ink than printed RFID antennas and no silicon chip; does not take costly package space and improves package aesthetics Efficient: Enables detection of multiple codes simultaneously and remotely Higher coding ability: Codes a significantly higher amount of information than standard bar-codes, enabling EPC encoding Anti-counterfeiting solution: Easily integrated 12 digit/~40 bit Require contact reading 96 bit coding Remotely detectable

7 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication  Take Advantage of Diffraction  Create a New Symbology: “SARcode”  Utilize Radar-Based Imaging Principles  Develop a New Portfolio of SARcode Readers  Integrate Existing Printing Processes with SARcode Software 7 How to get there…

8 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication 8 Understanding the Diffraction Phenomena  The existence of diffraction has limited the extent to which symbols or images (such as barcodes) can be compressed.  Diffraction is the bending, spreading and interference of waves when they pass by an obstruction or through a gap. When a bar code symbol is placed too near another symbol, its waves interfere with those of its neighbour (diffraction) and vice versa, making it impossible to accurately read either bar.  This limitation has restricted the density with which symbol-based codes can be printed, and therefore the minimum size required for machine- readable codes. By extension, this has also limited the number of digits which can be used, for example, in barcodes.

9 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication 9 Taking Advantage of Diffraction  Current technologies do not take into account that the diffraction phenomena are predictable  Diffraction is not a random, chaotic event - it is measurable and predictable  Diffraction is 3 dimensional which allows a system to understand an object’s depth and orientation in relation to the reader  Estimating an object’s depth and orientation allows the system to read multiple discrete tags All Without Line of Sight

10 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication 10 The SARcode Concept - Controlling the Diffraction Effects Sequence of 37 symbols, each positioned (or not) in 1 of 9 potential vertical positions Special symbols for tag positioning 96 bits matrix = EPC code capacity Very high error correction capacity Tag dimensions = 119mm x 50mm 119mm x 50mm (4.68 x 1.9 inches) The SARcode creates up to 96 bits in a small area and consumes only 10% of the conductive ink required for a printed RFID antenna!!!!

11 The Experts in Machine - Readable Authentication 11 Radar-Based Imaging  The reader is based on a multi antenna array, is operating in the MM wave spectra and is based on InSAR and SAR algorithms. It detects multi-symbol patterns and their inter-symbol diffraction effects. The tag is carrying up to 96 bits of information and can be read in an extended range.  Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a form of RADAR technology in which sophisticated post-processing techniques of SAR data are used to produce a very narrow effective beam. The result is a map of radar reflectivity, including both amplitude and phase data. The SAR principle is expected to be used in all reader applications. The series of observations can produce the same resolution as of that of a very large antenna; InkSure’s process creates a synthetic aperture that is much larger than the length of the reader’s discrete antennas.  Interferometer Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) InSAR extracts data from the phase information. Utilizing major improvements and developments of InSAR algorithms, we can detect typical static/ hand held applications. InSAR allows the tag size to be substantially smaller.
