The I•CODE SLI-L/I•CODE SLI-L HC IC is a dedicated chip for smart label applications with the need for a leaner custom-specific command set, smaller memory and/or a product which takes care of the increasing demand for perfect customer privacy. This IC is another member of our product family of smart label ICs that fully comply to the ISO standard ISO/IEC 15693. The IC is also available in high capacitance version for small label designs.

The I•CODE system offers the possibility of operating more than one label simultaneously in the field of the reader antenna (Anticollision). It is designed for long range applications with a special command for the use under the European regulations.
