The article presents information on G2 Microsystems' Wi-Fi RFID SoC. The G2C5O1 SoC designed for active RFID applications, supports the existing IEEE 802.11Wi-Fi network infrastructures. According to the company the chip's integrated support for multiple location technologies and environmental sensing coupled with very low power consumption enables a new class of REID tags for enterprise applications. Operating on the 2.4-GHz band, the chip uses the PHY/MAC standard and the integrated ISO 24730-2 emerging standard to enable asset tracking. Integrated sensor interfaces monitors various asset conditions.
