Passive RFID using UHF delivers long-range benefits in the IoT

Passive RFID using UHF delivers long-range benefits in the IoT
For consumers, the impact of the IoT may be summarised as greater convenience, for example, many people now use contactless payment, something that is enabled by short-range RF communications between a payment terminal and a bank card, mobile phone or smart watch equipped with the same technology. Recently, the introduction of Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID technology has extended that potential.

RFID evolution enables smarter tracking

RFID evolution enables smarter tracking
Did you know the origins of RFID technology can be traced to WWII? However, RFID as a technology only started to gain any recognition in product surveillance tags during the 1960s. Since then, RFID’s popularity has shown no signs of dimming. Used in any situation that requires contactless and non-line-of-sight identification of an individual object, RFID systems are now found at the heart of most supply chains.

RFID inventory provides real time monitoring for retailers

RFID inventory provides real time monitoring for retailers
  RFID technology company, PervasID, has announced a complete single source solution that can detect, read and monitor RFID tags with what it claims to be the highest levels of accuracy (99%+). This allows goods to be tracked throughout their retail journey through warehouses or DCs, and from loading bays and storage areas in stores to front of store, checkout and store exit.

Standard cell library offers 90% reduction for RFID chips

The challenge of improving the RFID reader detection range and thus the identification rate induce that the chips must be able to operate at extremely low voltage, as the energy caught by the antenna is lowered.

RAIN RFID tag works perfectly on metal surfaces

RAIN RFID tag works perfectly on metal surfaces
As part of its RFID range of products, Murata has announced the LXFLANMXMG-003, a RAIN RFID tag designed for use on metal components and surfaces. Previously, placing such tags on to metal has been challenging because metal surfaces reflect the signal emitted from the reader and interfere with communication between the tag and reader. To overcome this, Murata has patented various technologies that allow RFID tags to work in conjunction with metal objects.

RFID has the power to magnify retail competitiveness

RFID has the power to magnify retail competitiveness
After years of bit-parts without the promised breakthrough role, Radio Frequency ID (RFID) technology seems to be moving into the retail limelight. Using either passive or active tags attached to each item of stock, RFID means retailers can achieve a real-time picture of their entire inventory through either fixed scanning points or hand-held devices. As the price of tags has dropped substantially in the last decade, so the technology has become far more viable. Author: Steve Thomas, Chief Technology Officer, Omnico

Plastic RFID system integrates screen-printed circuitry

Plastic RFID system integrates screen-printed circuitry
A plastic 12-bit RFID tag and read-out system with screen-printed circuitry has been demonstrated by Quad Industries, Agfa, imec and TNO. The system integrates, for the first time, a screen-printed antenna and printed touch-based user interface, allowing implementation of the reader on curved surfaces. The demonstrator has been designed for badge security applications, but holds promises for many other applications, including smart packages, wearables and interactive games.
