EPC(1) (Entertainment PC) See HTPC.
(2) (Electronic Product Code) A standard code for RFID tags administered by GS1 and GS1 US (www.gs1.org). The EPC ranges from 64 to 256 bits and contains, at minimum, the product number, serial number, company ID and EPC version.
A Unique EPC for Everything
Unlike UPC barcodes, which do not have serial numbers, the EPC enables tracking of each physical item for everything we can conceivably ever make. A 96-bit EPC can uniquely identify 16 million products in each of 268 million companies, and each product can have 68 billion serial numbers. See Gen 2 and RFID. Contrast with UPC.
