1. General description
NXP’s UCODE G2iL series transponder ICs offer leading-edge read range and support
industry-first features such as a Tag Tamper Alarm, Data Transfer, Digital Switch, and
advanced privacy-protection modes.
Very high chip sensitivity (18 dBm) enables longer read ranges with simple, single-port
antenna designs. When connected to a power supply, the READ as well as the WRITE
range can be boosted to a sensitivity of 27 dBm. In fashion and retail the UCODE G2iL
series improve read rates and provide for theft deterrence. For consumer electronics the
UCODE G2iL series is suited for device configuration, activation, production control, and
PCB tagging. In authentication applications the transponders can be used to protect
brands and guard against counterfeiting. They can also be used to tag containers,
electronic vehicles, airline baggage, and more.
In addition to the EPC specifications the G2iL offers an integrated Product Status Flag
(PSF) feature and read protection of the memory content.
On top of the G2iL features the G2iL+ offers an integrated tag tamper alarm, RF field
detection, digital switch, external supply mode, read range reduction and data transfer
mode.

9. Mechanical specification
The UCODE G2iL/G2iL+ wafers are available in 75 m and 120 m thickness. The 75m
thick wafer allows ultra thin label design but require a proper tuning of the glue dispenser
during production. Because of the more robust structure of the 120m wafer, the wafer is
ideal for harsh applications. The 120 m thick wafer is also enhanced with 7m Polyimide
spacer allowing additional protection of the active circuit.

10. Functional description
10.1 Air interface standards
The UCODE G2iL fully supports all parts of the "Specification for RFID Air Interface
EPCglobal, EPC Radio-Frequency Identity Protocols, Class-1 Generation-2 UHF RFID,
Protocol for Communications at 860 MHz to 960 MHz, Version 1.2.0".
10.2 Power transfer
The interrogator provides an RF field that powers the tag, equipped with a UCODE G2iL.
The antenna transforms the impedance of free space to the chip input impedance in order
to get the maximum possible power for the G2iL on the tag. The G2iL+ can also be
supplied externally.
The RF field, which is oscillating on the operating frequency provided by the interrogator,
is rectified to provide a smoothed DC voltage to the analog and digital modules of the IC.

UCODE G2iL and G2iL+
The antenna that is attached to the chip may use a DC connection between the two
antenna pads. Therefore the G2iL also enables loop antenna design. Possible examples
of supported antenna structures can be found in the reference antenna design guide.
10.3 Data transfer
10.3.1 Reader to tag Link
An interrogator transmits information to the UCODE G2iL by modulating an UHF RF
signal. The G2iL receives both information and operating energy from this RF signal. Tags
are passive, meaning that they receive all of their operating energy from the interrogator's
RF waveform. In order to further improve the read range the UCODE G2iL+ can be
externally supplied as well so the energy to operate the chip does not need to be
transmitted by the reader.
An interrogator is using a fixed modulation and data rate for the duration of at least one
inventory round. It communicates to the G2iL by modulating an RF carrier using DSB-ASK
with PIE encoding.
For further details refer to Section 16, Ref. 1. Interrogator-to-tag (R=>T) communications.
10.3.2 Tag to reader Link
An interrogator receives information from a G2iL by transmitting an unmodulated RF
carrier and listening for a backscattered reply. The G2iL backscatters by switching the
reflection coefficient of its antenna between two states in accordance with the data being
sent. For further details refer to Section 16, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.
The UCODE G2iL communicates information by backscatter-modulating the amplitude
and/or phase of the RF carrier. Interrogators shall be capable of demodulating either
demodulation type.
The encoding format, selected in response to interrogator commands, is either FM0
baseband or Miller-modulated subcarrier.
10.4 G2iL and G2iL+ differences
The UCODE G2iL is tailored for application where mainly EPC or TID number space is
needed. The G2iL+ in addition provides functionality such as tag tamper alarm, external
supply operation to further boost read/write range (external supply mode), a Privacy mode
reducing the read range or I/O functionality (data transfer to externally connected devices)
required.
The following table provides an overview of G2iL, G2iL+ special features.

The logical address of all memory banks begin at zero (00h).
In addition to the three memory banks one configuration word to handle the G2iL specific
features is available at EPC bank 01 address 200h. The configuration word is described in
detail in Section 10.7.1 “ChangeConfig”.
Memory pages (16 bit words) pre-programmed to zero will not execute an erase cycle
before writing data to it. This approach accelerates initialization of the chip and enables
faster programming of the memory.

UCODE G2iL and G2iL+
10.7 Custom commands
The UCODE G2iL, G2iL+ is equipped with a number of additional features and custom
commands.
Nevertheless, the chip is designed in a way standard EPCglobal READ/WRITE/ACCESS
commands can be used to operate the features.
The memory map stated in the previous section describes the Configuration Word used to
control the additional features located at address 200h of the EPC memory. For this
reason the standard READ/WRITE commands of an UHF EPCglobal compliant reader
can be used to select the flags or activate/deactivate features.
The features can only be activated/deactivated (written) using standard EPC WRITE
command as long the EPC is not locked. In case the EPC is locked either the bank needs
to be unlocked to apply changes or the ChangeConfig custom command is used to
change the settings.
The UCODE G2iL is also equipped with the complete UCODE G2X command set for
backward compatibility reasons. Nevertheless, the one ChangeConfig command of the
G2iL can be used instead of the entire G2X command set.
Bit 14h of the TID indicates the existence of a Configuration Word. This flag will enable
selecting Config-Word enhanced transponders in mixed tag populations.
10.7.1 ChangeConfig
Although G2iL is tailored for supply chain management, item level tagging and product
authentication the G2iL+ version enables active interaction with products. Among the
password protected features are the capability of download firmware to electronics,
activate/deactivate electronics which can also be used as theft deterrence, a dedicated
privacy mode by reducing the read range, integrated PSF (Product Status Flag) or Tag
Tamper Alarm.
The G2iL ChangeConfig custom command allows handling the special NXP
Semiconductors features described in the following paragraph. Please also see the
memory map in Section 10.6 “G2iL, G2iL+ memory” and “Section 10.7.2 “G2iL, G2iL+
special features control mechanism”. If the EPC memory is not write locked the standard
EPC READ/WRITE command can be used to change the settings.
G2iL, G2iL+ special features1
UCODE G2iL and G2iL+ common special features are:
• Bank wise read protection (separate for EPC and TID)
EPC bank and the serial number part of the TID can be read protected independently.
When protected reading of the particular memory will return '0'. The flags of the
configuration word can be selected using the standard SELECT2 command. Only
read protected parts will then participate an inventory round. The G2X ReadProtect
command will set both EPC and TID read protect flags.
1.
The features can only be manipulated (enabled/disabled) with unlocked EPC bank, otherwise the ChangeConfig command can be
used.
2.
SELECT has to be applied onto the Configuration Word with pointer address 200h. Selecting bits within the Configuration Word
using a pointer address not equal to 200h is not possible.

UCODE G2iL and G2iL+
• Integrated PSF (Product Status Flag)
The PSF is a general purpose flag that can be used as an EAS (Electronic Article
Surveillance) flag, quality checked flag or similar.
The G2iL offers two ways of detecting an activated PSF. In cases extremely fast
detection is needed the EAS_Alarm command can be used. The UCODE G2iL will
reply a 64-bit alarm code like described in section EAS_Alarm upon sending the
command. As a second option the EPC SELECT2 command selecting the PSF flag of
the configuration word can be used. In the following inventory round only PSF
enabled chips will reply their EPC number.
• Backscatter strength reduction
The UCODE G2iL features two levels of backscatter strengths. Per default maximum
backscatter is enabled in order to enable maximum read rates. When clearing the flag
the strength can be reduced if needed.
• Real Read Range Reduction 4R
Some applications require the reduction of the read range to close proximity for
privacy reasons. Setting the 4R flag will significantly reduce the chip sensitivity to
+12 dBm. The +12 dBm have to be available at chip start up (slow increase of field
strength is not applicable). For additional privacy, the read protection can be activated
in the same configuration step. The related flag of the configuration word can be
selected using the standard SELECT2 command so only chips with reduced read
range will be part of an inventory.
Remark: The attenuation will result in only a few centimeter of read range at 36 dBm
EIRP!
UCODE G2iL+ specific special features are:1
• Tag Tamper Alarm (G2iL+ only)
The UCODE G2iL+ Tamper Alarm will flag the status of the VDD to OUT pad
connection which can be designed as an predetermined breaking point (see

UCODE G2iL and G2iL+
• RF field detection (G2iL+ only)
The UCODE G2iL+ VDD pin can be also used as a RF field detector. Upon bringing
the tag within an RF field, a pulse signal will be immediately sent from the VDD test
pad. (for details see Ref. 21).
• Digital Switch (G2iL+ only)
The UCODE G2iL+ OUT pin can be used as digital switch. The state of the output pad
can be switched to VDD or GND depending on the Digital OUT bit of the Configuration
Word register. The state of the output is persistent in the memory even after KILL or
switching off the supply. This feature will allow activating/deactivating externally
connected peripherals or can be used as theft deterrence of electronics.
The state of the OUT pin can also be changed temporary by toggling the 'Invert Digital
Output' bit.
• Data transfer Mode (G2iL+ only)
In applications where not switching the output like described in "Digital Switch" but
external device communication is needed the G2iL+ Data Transfer Mode can be used
by setting the according bit of the Configuration Word register. When activated the air
interface communication will be directly transferred to the OUT pad of the chip.
Two modes of data transfer are available and can be switched using the Transparent
Mode DATA/RAW bit.
The default Transparent Mode DATA will remove the Frame Sync of the
communication and toggle the output with every raising edge in the RF field. This will
allow implementing a Manchester type of data transmission.
The Transparent Mode RAW will switch the demodulated air interface communication
to the OUT pad.
• External Supply Indicator - Digital Input (G2iL+ only)
The VDD pad of the UCODE G2iL+ can be used as a single bit digital input pin. The
state of the pad is directly associated with the External Supply Indicator bit of the
configuration register. Simple one bit return signaling (chip to reader) can be
implemented by polling this Configuration Word register flag. RF reset is necessary
for proper polling.
• External Supply Mode (G2iL+ only)
The UCODE G2iL+ can be supplied externally by connecting 1.85 V (Iout = 0µA)
supply. When externally supplied less energy from the RF field is needed to operate
the chip. This will not just enable further improved sensitivity and read ranges (up to
27 dBm) but also enable a write range that is equal to the read range.
The figure schematically shows the supply connected to the UCODE G2iL+.
Remark: When permanently externally supplied there will not be a power-on-reset. This
will result in the following limitations:
• When externally supplied session flag S0 will keep it’s state during RF-OFF phase.
• When externally supplied session flag S2, S3, SL will have infinite persistence time
and will behave similar to S0.
• Session flag S1 will behave regular like in pure passive operation.

UCODE G2iL and G2iL+
The features can only be activated/deactivated using standard EPC WRITE if the EPC
bank is unlocked. The permanent and temporary bits of the Configuration Word can be
toggled without the need for an ACCESS password in case the ACCESS password is set
to zero. In case the EPC bank is locked the lock needs to be removed before applying
changes or the ChangeConfig command has to be used.
10.7.2 G2iL, G2iL+ special features control mechanism
Special features of the G2iL are managed using a configuration word (Config-Word)
located at address 200h in the EPC memory bank.
The entire Config-Word is selectable (using the standard EPC SELECT2 command) and
can be read using standard EPC READ command and modified using the standard EPC
WRITE or ChangeConfig custom command in case the EPC memory is locked for writing.
ChangeConfig can be executed from the OPEN and SECURED state.
The chip will take all “Toggle Bits” for ’0’ if the chip is in the OPEN state or the ACCESS
password is zero; therefore it will not alter any status bits, but report the current status
only. The command will be ignored with an invalid CRC-16 or an invalid handle. The chip
will then remain in the current state. The CRC-16 is calculated from the first
command-code bit to the last handle bit.
A ChangeConfig command without frame-sync and proceeding Req_RN will be ignored.
The command will also be ignored if any of the RFU bits are toggled.
In order to change the configuration, to activate/deactivate a feature a ’1’ has to be written
to the corresponding register flag to toggle the status. E.g. sending 0x0002 to the register
will activate the read protection of the TID. Sending the same command a second time will
again clear the read protection of the TID. Invalid toggling on indicator or RFU bits are
ignored.
Executing the command with zero as payload or in the OPEN state will return the current
register settings. The chip will reply to a successful ChangeConfig with an extended
preamble regardless of the TRext value of the Query command.
After sending a ChangeConfig an interrogator shall transmit CW for less than TReply or
20 ms, where TReply is the time between the interrogator's ChangeConfig command and
the chip’s backscattered reply. An interrogator may observe three possible responses
after sending a ChangeConfig, depending on the success or failure of the operation
• ChangeConfigChangeConfig succeeded: The chip will backscatter the reply shown
above comprising a header (a 0-bit), the current Status Word setting, the handle, and
a CRC-16 calculated over the 0-bit, the status word and the handle. If the interrogator
observes this reply within 20 ms then the ChangeConfig completed successfully.
• The chip encounters an error: The chip will backscatter an error code during the CW
period rather than the reply shown below (see EPCglobal Spec for error-code
definitions and for the reply format).
• ChangeConfig does not succeed: If the interrogator does not observe a reply within
20 ms then the ChangeStatus did not complete successfully. The interrogator may
issue a Req_RN command (containing the handle) to verify that the chip is still in the
interrogator's field, and may reissue the ChangeConfig command.
The G2iL configuration word is located at address 200h of the EPC memory and is
structured as following:

10.7.3 ReadProtect3
The G2iL ReadProtect custom command enables reliable read protection of the entire
G2iL memory. Executing ReadProtect from the Secured state will set the ProtectEPC and
ProtectTID bits of the Configuration Word to '1'. With the ReadProtect-Bit set the G2iL will
continue to work unaffected but veil its protected content.
The read protection can be removed by executing Reset ReadProtect. The
ReadProtect-Bits will than be cleared.
Devices whose access password is zero will ignore the command. A frame-sync must be
pre-pended the command.
After sending the ReadProtect command an interrogator shall transmit CW for the lesser
of TReply or 20 ms, where TReply is the time between the interrogator's ReadProtect
command and the backscattered reply. An interrogator may observe three possible
responses after sending a ReadProtect, depending on the success or failure of the
operation:

10.7.5 ChangeEAS3
UCODE G2iL equipped RFID tags will also feature a stand-alone operating EAS alarm
mechanism for fast and offline electronic article surveillance. The PSF bit of the
Configuration Word directly relates to the EAS Alarm feature. With an PSF bit set to '1' the
tag will reply to an EAS_Alarm command by backscattering a 64 bit alarm code without
the need of a Select or Query. The EAS is a built-in solution so no connection to a
backend database is required. In case the EAS_Alarm command is not implemented in
the reader a standard EPC SELCET to the Configuration Word and Query can be used.
When using standard SELECT/QUERY the EPC will be returned during inventory.
ChangeEAS can be executed from the Secured state only. The command will be ignored
if the Access Password is zero, the command will also be ignored with an invalid CRC-16
or an invalid handle, the G2iL will than remain in the current state. The CRC-16 is
calculated from the first command-code bit to the last handle bit. A frame-sync must be
pre-pended the command.
The G2iL reply to a successful ChangeEAS will use the extended preamble, as
appropriate (i.e. a Tag shall reply as if TRext=1) regardless of the TRext value in the
Query that initiated the round.
After sending a ChangeEAS an interrogator shall transmit CW for less than TReply or
20 ms, where TReply is the time between the interrogator's ChangeEAS command and the
G2iL backscattered reply. An interrogator may observe three possible responses after
sending a ChangeEAS, depending on the success or failure of the operation
• ChangeEAS succeeds: After completing the ChangeEAS a G2iL will backscatter the
reply shown in Table 21 comprising a header (a 0-bit), the handle, and a CRC-16
calculated over the 0-bit and handle. If the interrogator observes this reply within
20 ms then the ChangeEAS completed successfully.
• The G2iL encounters an error: The G2iL will backscatter an error code during the CW
period rather than the reply shown in Table 21 (see EPCglobal Spec for error-code
definitions and for the reply format).

10.7.6 EAS_Alarm
Upon receiving an EAS_Alarm custom command the UCODE G2iL will immediately
backscatter an EAS-Alarmcode in case the PSF bit of the Configuration Word is set. The
alarm code is returned without any delay caused by Select, Query and without the need
for a backend database.
The EAS feature of the G2iL is available after enabling it by sending a ChangeEAS
command described in Section 10.7.5 “ChangeEAS3” or after setting the PSF bit of the
Configuration Word to ’1’. With the EAS-Alarm enabled the G2iL will reply to an
EAS_Alarm command by backscattering a fixed 64 bit alarm code. A G2iL will reply to an
EAS_Alarm command from the ready state only. As an alternative to the fast EAS_Alarm
command a standard SELECT2 (upon the Configuration Word) and QUERY can be used.
If the PSF bit is reset to '0' by sending a ChangeEAS command in the password protected
Secure state or clearing the PSF bit the G2iL will not reply to an EAS_Alarm command.

The EAS_Alarm command is structured as following:
• 16 bit command
• 16 bit inverted command
• DR (TRcal divide ratio) sets the T=>R link frequency as described in EPCglobal Spec.
6.3.1.2.8 and Table 6.9.
• M (cycles per symbol) sets the T=>R data rate and modulation format as shown in
EPCglobal Spec. Table 6.10.
• TRext chooses whether the T=>R preamble is pre-pended with a pilot tone as
described in EPCglobal Spec. 6.3.1.3.
A preamble must be pre-pended the EAS_Alarm command according EPCglobal Spec,
6.3.1.2.8.
Upon receiving an EAS_Alarm command the tag loads the CRC5 register with 01001b
and backscatters the 64 bit alarm code accordingly. The reader is now able to calculate
the CRC5 over the backscattered 64 bits received to verify the received code.
