DALLAS, July 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW)
technology is commonly used in the electronic circuitry of everyday appliances
like mobile phones and televisions, where the waves are used to filter
frequencies. But RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) developer AirGATE
Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of the X-Change Corporation
(OTC Bulletin Board: XCHC), believes SAW technology may provide a way to solve
deployment problems facing companies that have been unsuccessful in deploying
common RFID technology to identify, track and catalog tagged items in "harsh"
"RFID applications and environments that involve metal objects, high
temperatures, long read ranges and the need to read full pallets of metal
items have shown the capabilities of existing RFID technologies to be too
limiting under these conditions," said Michael Sheriff, CEO of AirGATE
Technologies. "In supply chain applications such as Wal-Mart deployments,
reading full pallets -- especially those containing cases of metal or liquids
-- has proven difficult with IC-based tags at 915 Mhz. We believe that SAW
technology at 2.4 Ghz. may provide a satisfactory answer to these problems,
and we are testing the use of this technology as a solution that we can offer
supply chain RFID customers."
The basic SAW device is a thin metal film structure deposited on top of a
piezoelectric crystal substrate with no power supplies. It reflects radio
signal based on the pattern etched onto its surface. These reflections can be
de-coded into data. SAWs are employed in transponders to transmit signals
that are modulated in amplitude and frequency to remote locations, which
translates well to an RFID application profile using SAW technology.
