DataGlyphs®: Embedding Digital Data

BasicDG02

Basic DataGlyphs/Microglyphs are a pattern of forward and backward slashes representing ones and zeroes. This pattern forms an evenly textured field.

 

 

PARC DataGlyphs are a robust and unobtrusive method of embedding computer-readable data on a variety of surfaces.

 

Unlike most barcodes, DataGlyphs are flexible in shape and size. Their structure and robust error correction also make them suitable for curved surfaces and other situations where barcodes fail.

 

 

 

Microglyph®: Direct Parts Marking & Packaging

 

PARC invented DataGlyphs and licensed worldwide patents exclusively to Microglyph, who have developed a superseding technology. Microglyph Codes are directly marked on parts or products and discretely integrated into package designs, enabling reliable track and trace solutions when matrix- or barcodes fail, and helping protect brands and products from counterfeiting.

Roll mouse over image to zoom in. Original size: 5.9"x4.8" @600dpi. Color DataGlyphs provide a similar functionality as Glyphtones but extend the applications to color images

 

 

 

 

 

Roll mouse over image to see "invisible" glyphs as seen by the blue channel of a scanner. "Invisible" DataGlyphs are fine yellow glyphs printed on white. This drawing shows them at 200% and 1000% enlargement.
