Motorola showcased its vision of multiple application Intelligent Access this week at the International Security Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.
A highlight of the exhibit was the first presentations of the breakthrough BiStatix technology being used for access control.
BiStatix allows antennas to be printed on materials including paper. Using only silicon and printed ink instead of a costly metal coil and resonant capacitor, the technology drastically reduces card costs.
The new BiStatix Access Control Reader interacts with a variety of materials ranging from durable plastic to disposable laminated paper.
Motorola claims it is bringing RFID price points so low they can be thought of as a disposable access control card.
