Avery Dennison Smartrac’s AD Dot inlay measures just four by four millimeters and is designed for tracking very small goods such as wearable electronics, cosmetics and drugs.
NXP's NTAG 22x DNA family of NFC tag ICs leverage conductive and capacitive sensing to detect when a product has been opened, while providing moisture, pressure or fill-level sensing.
The two-year TRACE project, led by a consortium that includes PragmatIC Semiconductor, will monitor NFC-tagged beverage bottles and food trays as they are sold, returned to a store, cleaned and then reused.
OTACA's NFC label, along with blockchain software and analytics, enables the company to share product information with consumers, provide authentication, and create a digital record of each item's retail journey for analytics purposes.

The growth of e-commerce, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, has created a new demand for advanced packaging design.
With supply chains becoming more complex, it's time to build a strong foundational framework that is well-monitored and secured.
Stora Enso's ECO Meal UHF RFID tag for the food and beverage industry has a printed paper antenna and can be applied to or built into microwaveable packaged foods without posing a fire or arcing hazard.
Thanks to RFID technology, farms can control production and inventories, factories can guarantee product authenticity and proper packaging disposal, and customers can thus know what they are consuming.
