Radio frequency identification technologies are delivering benefits along the entire value chain in the high-technology sector. Industry leaders are using RFID to track printed circuit boards, providing visibility and process efficiencies at manufacturing plants. Device manufacturers are utilizing embedded RFID to provide new capabilities, such as premise-aware security and in-transit device locking, in order to reduce the incidence of theft and diversion. And companies hosting large data centers are employing RFID to track assets.

This year's RFID in High Tech conference and exhibition was designed to help product and application designers, electronics retailers and other businesses understand how the technology is being employed to improve operations and enable product differentiation in the highly competitive world of consumer electronics; 100 attendees took part in the event. Recordings of the conference's speaker presentations are now available in RFID Journal's online video library. Links to these videos, along with PDFs of the slides used during the presentations, are listed below. Note that some speakers have not granted permission to have their presentations and/or slides archived.

Intel and the Future of Consumer Electronics
Intel has developed a platform for embedding ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID into consumer electronics. A number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have used this platform to develop Windows 8-based tablets that implement embedded RFID functionality using Impinj's Monza X chip. Many firms are finding innovative uses for this embedded technology, including the ability to restrict access to data or devices based on location. Attendees learned how Intel is pioneering embedded RFID, and how it is delivering new capabilities and benefits to electronics manufacturers, retailers, corporate IT departments and service providers.

Chip Maker Uses RFID to Reduce Labor Costs and Improve On-Time Delivery
Silicon chip manufacturer TowerJazz not only produces high-memory radio frequency identification chips, but is now employing Wi-Fi-based RFID technology at one of its own fabrication facilities to track work-in-progress. The solution consists of battery-powered Wi-Fi tags on batches of wafers, exciters to pinpoint a tag's location, and software to determine at which workstation or on which rack wafers are located during manufacturing. The location data is forwarded to the company's dispatch software, which then updates the lot's status. At any time during manufacturing, the firm can review the physical location history for each lot in the process of being manufactured. During this session, the audience heard how accurate, real-time RFID data has improved the company's efficiency and on-time delivery.
