  • Split-Ring Resonator-Based Chipless RFID Tags
    Published July 2011
    Madhavan R. Sriram and S. Dinesh Dass, of Thiagarajar College of Engineering, in Madurai, India, discuss a new process for producing RFID tags that is designed to lower manufacturing costs. This white paper, which includes laboratory simulation results, deals with the implementation of chipless tags using Split Ring Resonators, enabling the tags to be tuned at multiple frequencies over a selected band, which the company hopes could potentially replace passive RFID.
  • Innovative Bar-Code and RFID Printing Solutions for SAP Users
    Published May 2011
    Producing bar-code and RFID output from SAP applications has traditionally proved challenging. The specialized, rugged printers used for printing bar-code and RFID labels on production lines, in warehouses, at shipping docks and in other industrial environments utilize different command languages than office printers supported by legacy SAP software, and IT departments often depend on middleware or printer-specific scripts to enable a printer to recognize SAP output. This white paper outlines solutions from SAP and Zebra Technologies designed to provide a seamless environment for creating complex bar-code and RFID labels for a wide range of business applications.
