ARCA Kit to be used for emerging apparel industry

Alien Technology, an industry leader for Gen 2 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) products, today announced the Alien RFID Custom Application (ARCA) kit that will allow users, for the first time, to implement custom applications on Alien readers. Alien Channel Partners can now deliver more effective and better integrated RFID solutions to end users, who will see a faster return on their RFID investment.

Alien developed the application kit to accommodate the expanding list of applications for Gen 2 RFID. Alien Channel Partners are discovering many new ways to use RFID technology and wanted the ability to adapt off-the-shelf readers to new applications. The Alien RFID Custom Application Kit enables partners to deliver more value, more quickly for emerging applications like apparel inventory management, industrial manufacturing and IT asset tracking.

“We're using Alien's programming capability to implement features that our customers need,” said Toby Rush, President and CEO of Rush Tracking. “Alien's programming tools have made it easier for us to implement RFID solutions that harmonize with our customers' existing processes.”

“We've had ARCA in beta for several months and partner feedback has been very positive,” said Scot Stelter, Director of Product Marketing for Alien. “Our channel partners find that they can quickly deliver new features they need to penetrate new applications. This highlights the continuing trend away from the lab and toward market-driven commercialization of RFID.”

“We are using the ARCA product on an upcoming apparel pilot to implement a custom interface with the ALR-8800 reader,” said Vlasis Tsezos, Engineering Manager at Business Effectiveness, a provider of RFID integration services and supply chain solutions in Greece. “This capability will help us deliver more function to our customers with less effort.”

Alien selected Ruby, a stable, flexible, object-oriented programming language because it allows users to rapidly develop cross-platform applications. Beta users have found Ruby to be easy to master. Coupled with the Alien Reader Protocol, Ruby provides a feature-rich, highly adaptable platform for implementing RFID solutions. Functions that partners can implement through Ruby include RFID data preprocessing, application-specific triggering modes and custom communication channels with server-side applications.
