– Antenna size: 40 x 40 mm / 1.575 x 1.575"
– Die-cut size: 43 x 43 mm / 1.69 x 1.69"

– EPC Gen2 and ISO 18000-6C protocol-compliant
– Suitable especially for item-level retail, logistics and supply chain applications
– Samples available at RFID JL, production volumes during Q2 2012
Also the established UPM Web and UPM Trap UHF products now feature Monza 5 chips. Testing of UPM Web with Monza 5 is in progress by the RFID Research Center of the University of Arkansas' RFID Research Center.
