RFID How To Guides & Best Practices

Embedded UHF RFID

Embedded UHF RFIDUHF RFID technology continues to travel down the road toward becoming ubiquitous. As the technology becomes more mature, it is being deployed in more industries each day, with applications growing in sectacors like medical and healthcare, pharmaceutical, retail, hospitality, automotive and general manufacturing.

What’s driving adoption? Users are embracing the fact that the read range of passive UHF RFID has quadrupled in the past few years, meaning that UHF devices can now “see” objects up to tens of meters away. Read rates have increased from 200 tags per second to 1,200, and read accuracy is near 100 percent.

As the use of UHF RFID (860 to 960 MHz frequency range) becomes more commonplace, the focus on the technology is clearly shifting from that of an add-on technology to something that is being increasingly included in original product specs and embedded into products at the point of manufacture.

In digesting this trend, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are placing greater emphasis on determining the best path to take when it comes to embedding RFID into their products. Some are still taking the complex road of buying the components needed to build their own reader modules. Others are purchasing an RFID reader chip and reference design, a somewhat simpler, but still very challenging approach.

A more common and efficient option is to purchase a fully functional reader module that can be easily integrated into a wide range of products.

This white paper offers some key examples of how RFID readers are being embedded into equipment, examines the pros and cons of each option, and looks at how embedded UHF RFID is creating new applications that are expected to drive rapid growth.

RFID Projects – Avoiding the Five Most Common Mistakes

I am approaching my 11th year working in the RFID industry, and even though the technology has evolved considerably, the barriers to adoption seem to remain the same.  Those of you that know me have seen how fired up I can get about this subject, but it’s simply because I want to see people succeed.  To that end, I have compiled a list of the most common mistakes I continue to see and how to avoid them.

The Importance of RFID Equipment Enclosures

During the past ten years, I've seen some pretty scary RFID installations: antennas mounted on plywood, readers screwed into concrete above dock doors, exposed wires, and the list goes on. In this edition of The RFID Network we’re going to take a look at the importance of RFID equipment enclosures.
