FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MONTPELLIER, FRANCE and RALEIGH, USA (July 2, 2018) – Tageos today announces the release of the new version of its small EOS-241 RFID tag based on NXP Ucode 8 IC. Designed for tagging apparel and small items, the new EOS-241 U8 offers excellent performance in a compact form-factor. The inlay is approved by the University of Auburn RFID lab in all FCC categories.
Approved for retail
Tageos EOS-241 U8 successfully completed product testing in the ARC program at the Auburn University RFID lab. The inlay passed all categories related to various use cases for RFID within retail environments in the FCC frequency range (Spec A, B, C, D, M, G, F, Q, and N), demonstrating high capability to meet retailers’ and brand owners’ requirements.
Tageos designed the EOS-241 inlay around NXP’s latest-generation Ucode 8 chip. The Ucode 8 offers increased sensitivity and allows designing more powerful RFID tags particularly efficient in retail applications, including the most demanding use cases such as high-density population.
With finished dimensions of 1.77×0.75in (45x19mm), the EOS-241 U8 inlay represents a perfect solution for tagging a large variety of items, particularly small fashion items with limited available labeling area. The tag is also easily embedded into most other tag sizes and formats (tickets, sew-in labels, etc.).

It is good news for retailers and suppliers of the US market looking for a unique solution to label variety of product types.” says Matthieu Picon, CEO at Tageos.
