SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for auction an optimized method for low-cost integrated circuit production, particularly relevant to RFID tag manufacturing. This auction lot from inventor Maurice Bailey will be included in the 17th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction on November 29, 2012, at The Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, California.
"We are excited to be offering this innovative production method to our global base of buyers. By reducing manufacturing expenses of integrated circuits such as radio-frequency identification devices (RFIDs), this process could promote universal implementation of RFID technology in a variety of industries such as logistics, retail, and more," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
This IP sales offering includes a method for reduced-step Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor (CMOS) processes for low-cost integrated circuits. CMOS processing is integral to the production of RFIDs. RFIDs are seen in a wide variety of applications – tracking and managing assets, inventory, livestock, etc. – which are of particular importance to the fields of transportation, logistics, and commerce. The enhanced method reduces the number and complexity of required process steps, while maintaining a satisfactory level of performance and reliability of the end product. Further, the reduced set of CMOS process steps were designed around the unique needs of economical integrated circuits and RFIDs, such as a decreased focus on power, performance, and longevity. Therefore, this more efficient production process is able to reduce the manufacturing cost to a level that could further the adoption and uses of RFID technology. This cost advantage would be of value to firms operating in the retail, logistics, and RFID manufacturing spaces, among others.
See this technical description of the improved production process IP sales offering.
