Emerging Technologies White Papers

  • The Benefits of Using Rigorously Tested Routines from Numerical Libraries
    Published March 2011
    Rob Meyer, the CEO of the Numerical Algorithms Group, discusses areas of RFID research and development involving computationally intensive mathematical and statistical methods, particularly when time to market for new products is a key concern. This white paper provides a framework for understanding how commercially available numerical libraries can provide a powerful tool for managing the challenges of using radio frequency identification technologies. (7 pages)
  • An Introduction to Passive RFID
    Published January 2011
    Zebra Technologies provides an overview of RFID technology, describes current standards and details how RFID can complement existing bar-code technology while enabling new applications in diverse industries. (12 pages)
  • RFID Tag Design, Sub Fractional Performance Effects
    Published December 2010
    This document, written by Mentor Graphics' Gregory Hassman, demonstrates the system-level effects and expected ramifications of designing RFID tags that are smaller than the optimized length. (15 pages)
  • Bar Code and RFID Convergence: Enabling Greater Visibility Through Standards
    Published November 2010
    VDC Research's Drew Nathanson and Tom Wimmer discuss how the combination of radio frequency identification and bar-code technologies can provide end users with more actionable business intelligence, with little disruption to existing solutions and processes, from a robust technology platform. Such convergence can help companies increase visibility, enhance the decision-making process and improve operational efficiencies. (20 pages)
  • RFID Tag Comparison Guide: Understanding Broadband Technology
    Published August 2010
    As RFID technology matures, users are faced with an increasing array of options for unlocking new business benefits and value. Ten years ago, RFID solutions were limited by short read distances and high costs, but the advent of passive UHF RFID and the EPC Class 1 Gen 2 protocol shifted the paradigm, opening up portal-based solutions and global interoperability. In this white paper, Omni-ID discusses how passive UHF enables real-world solutions for applications requiring tags to work on and around metal, and also explores the introduction of a global on-metal passive UHF RFID tag. (10 pages)
  • Rethinking How to Purchase WMS Software
    Published August 2010
    Synergy North America discusses its Snapfulfil warehouse-management software, designed to facilitate professional purchasing. (9 pages)
  • The Intelleflex XC3 Technology Platform: An Implementation of the Draft ISO Class 3 Standard
    Published May 2010
    Intelleflex's new XC3 technology platform consists of chips, tags, reader modules, fixed interrogators and mobile readers. This white paper explores the technology's benefits, and also offers a technical discussion of the recently approved draft ISO 18000-6C BAP Class 3 standard on which it is based.
  • Integrating a Company Logo Into a Tag Antenna Design in RFID Applications
    Published February 2010
    Tatung University's Chi-Fang Huang, Yueh-Ching Lin and Ming-Fu Kuo present a design idea for how a company's logo can be incorporated into an RFID tag antenna, in order to protect the intellectual property (IP) of that firm's tag antenna design. This white paper discusses both antenna design simulation and tag performance evaluation. (5 pages)
  • Cross-Docking: Addressing the Technology Gap to Improve Visibility
    Published January 2010
    Cross-docking can help company executives reduce inventory costs and trim delivery times. Traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) technology, however, does not offer the visibility and accountability to optimize cross-docking efficiency. TAKE Supply Chain's Jason Howton discusses the technology requirements of a next-generation cross-docking solution. (6 pages)
  • The Promise of Organic Electronics: Previously Unimaginable Innovative Products
    Published October 2009
    Theorem's Forrest Sass discusses organic electronics, exploring a number of products utilizing the technology, including RFID tags, e-paper, organic transistors and memory, disposable electronics, paper substrates and OLEDs. Sass examines the market dynamics and size of organic electronics, as well as the improvements needed for organic cell technology, bilateral charge transport, AM and PM OLEDs, electroluminescence and more.
