ICODE SLIX2 anyone?

Hello y’all,

Came across one of these in the wild.

Not familiar with them I pulled the datasheet and found out they have a pretty large memory and some cool functions:

  • 2560-bit user accessible EEPROM
  • several types of password protection, read/write protection …
  • comes in several form factor including moa8

Thinking it might be an alternative to the ntag, but with more functions and memories?
What y’all think?

not an alternative ntag but can do ndef messaging, i can’t remember the extent to which you can store an ndef record in terms of size but it would be worth testing a payload >1kb

they’re somewhat common around where i am (uk) i’ve seen them used in all manner of things from access control to under-table pager locators.

It seam to pop up link automatically, which is neat. I was surprised by the storage size. They are surprisingly cheap so I may “have” to pick a few to play with :sweat_smile:

We’re behind in the US :roll_eyes:
Found it at a restaurant, but they didn’t have the back end up and running yet …

Ho … and it’s the 2.1mm glassie too …
I’ll have to pick one up in my next order :grin:


Pretty sure it’s not the large memory size though… I’ll have to open one up and remind myself what we made hahaha I’ll update the product page

Are you familiar with tonies?

Pretty sure they utilize the icode slix2 chip

I also believe it comes in a glassie form as well.

I have quite a few for my daughter, could crack one open but I’m sure it would bring in Armageddon

Edit: I was wrong it’s Slix-L. But it’s still glassie and has that privacy mode feature I absolutely dispise

I’ll hold on then, I thought it responded more like an ntag, but going through the datasheet, it seam like they rely on the phone scanning it to realize it’s a link and open it. No easy operation with tag writer app that I can see.

I’m a bit confused by it from the data sheet. Doesnt seam really made to access and edit data on it, more for a write and lock type thing …

The memory size is appealing, but I’m not sure how it would work as a secure storage space.
