standard for

.
Tego
Chip DM
offers
two
distinct memory sections for two record type
s

required

on

assets in aerospace

tagging programs
. One memory section is reserved for perma
nent, archival
information, perfect for storing

an asset’s
locked
Birth R
ecord

where data is needed throughout an
asset’s lifetime
. The second memory section is reserved for rewritable information, allowing users to
update
a Lifecycle Record to show

a tagged item’s condition

as it changes over time
.
TegoChip DM is the
only chip available that
fully
supports the Dual
-
Record tag type.

Tego
Chip DM was designed in response to the
new ATA

standard
,
published today,
which

has significant
change
s and new capabilities

that OEMs, air
frame manufacturers and airlines

plan to use immediately.

While t
he new standard already includes

mandatory and

conditional

elements allowing fo
r efficient

,
it
also include
s

features that allow
proprietar
y and user

defined data entries,

something that RFID adopters have
long wanted

all
these
data

elements, enabling aviation users
to fully describe their asset

ensure

compliance over

a
long

life

“Tego has played a leadi
ng role in the creation of the ATA
standar
d and
introducing a dual memory RFID
chip is a first for the
industry
” said T
imothy Butler, CEO of Tego, Inc. “
In fact
,

TegoChip DM was
developed in response to se
veral customers finding that

current 2Kbi
t
RFID
chips are
generally
not
able
to hold the ATA Dual

Record. Now there is a chip s
olution from Tego that give
s compliance for the full
range of data options allowed by the ATA.” The
