RAIN RFID, NFC, RAINFC - What is the difference? 

Although all derived from RFID technology, RAIN RFID, NFC and RAINFC are all forms of wireless technologies. They however differ based on the frequency on which they operate and the applications they are suited for. 

  • RAIN RFID: RAIN RFID inlays operate in the UHF band and can have read ranges of 10 to 15 meters. They are particularly suited for applications such as inventory management, lost prevention, asset and equipment tracking. 
  • NFC (Near Field Communication): NFC inlays operate in the HF (short range) band are available in different types. NFC inlays can be read by any smartphone. They are particularly suited for brand protection and marketing applications 
  • RAINFC: RAINFC inlays combine RAIN and NFC in one IC with shared memory.  They can be used to combine several applications requiring UHF and HF read range, for example, inventory and brand protection.
