The Alien Technology® “Short” RFID inlay is a narrower, high-performance member of the Squiggle® family.


ALN-9662 “Short” Higgs 3

For “Short” applications that demand more on-tag storage of up to 800 NVAM bits. This enables storage of data for the purpose of avoiding additional network access that would otherwise be required for data retrieval.


ALN-9762 “Short” Higgs 4

For “Short” applications that demand the most optimized solution for high-volume applications or other Higgs 4 advantages. Higgs 4 Squiggle offers BlastWrite™ mass-encoding for programming multiple tags at the same time, QuickWrite™ for writing a complete memory bank in one command and ultimate write-sensitivity which together provide the fastest mass-market tag encoding solution. Higgs 4 is provided pre-programmed with the ultimate enterprise-wide serialization scheme which enables efficient distributed mass-encoding of tags.


ALN-9862 “Short” Higgs EC

Powered by Alien®’s volume focused Higgs™-EC UHF RFID IC and innovative Short antenna design, the ALN-9862 delivers industry leading EPC Gen 2 read and write performance in a narrower width than it’s bigger brother, the Squiggle®.

Performance between Squiggle and Squiglette but in a smaller tag Approaches the well regarded Squiggle performance tag in a smaller form-factor Smaller form-factor, still robust, proven, and reliable
Higgs 3 or Higgs 4 variants Large memory version (Higgs3) or optimized memory version (Higgs4). Get what you need for your application – select larger memory or mass-market optimization options.
Higgs™ 4 read/write performance in the highly-efficient “Short” Squiggle family tag One of Alien’s best performing general purpose tags boosted by Higgs™ 4 performance and features. Highly efficient, smaller form-factor tag, still robust, proven, and reliable.
Optimized 448 bit memory footprint option Optimized for both high-performance and high-volume applications Designed to drive down the cost-of-ownership while increasing efficiencies of RFID solutions in large enterprises
