HIBIKI is a UHF Band RFID solution developed in Japan and supported by the local Government and various technology partners. The HIBIKI package was designed as a "Secure RFID" package and complies with ISO18000-6 Type C standards, and not only offers the requirements of this standard but also includes additional memory capacity, privacy protection, activate & deactivate features and an area of "industrial memory" for both manufacturers and suppliers to utilise if necessary. These memory blocks are allocated as "data banks" and can be individually assigned to users.
