Benefits of User Memory Encoder/Decoder

These tools can encode and decode the user memory (sometimes called extended memory) of a Gen 2 Electronic Product Code (EPC) Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag. 

The user memory stores data (with the exception of the unique identifier) including product-related information such as location, country of origin, production date, materials used, handling process, traceability information and more

If you are trying to read the extended user memory from a Gen 2 EPC/RFID tag, this tool can help you parse the information and uncompress the data into a format that an application can understand and process following the GS1 EPC Tag Data Standard 1.9. GS1 is actively working on an updated version of this tool that will support the latest GS1 EPC Tag Data Standard. 

To use the tool, enter the encoded user memory contents (hexadecimal) into the Encoded User Memory Contents box. The Decoded Data Elements box will show this data decoded into individual data elements that an application can process. You can use the decoded data elements in the User Memory Encoder tool.
