  • A New Technology Makes RFID Tags Much Less QAMplicated
    Published March 2014
    Scott Deuty and Jed Griffin of Gain ICs discuss a new technology designed to increase the number of RFID applications by reducing cost, shrinking tag size and increasing transmission ranges. Gain ICs' Ultra Phase Modulation (UPM) technology provides a strong signal and utilizes Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) technology. The resulting advantages include smaller size, lower power consumption and reduced noise generation and noise susceptibility. (6 pages)
  • What Makes RFID Systems Industrial-Strength?
    Published February 2014
    Retail environments in which products are sold look nothing like the industrial environments in which they are produced. Yet the same RFID products developed for retail stores and supply chain operations are heavily marketed to manufacturers for production operations. These products may have different housings or IP ratings than their general-purpose cousins, and may work fine in warehouses, but that does not necessarily qualify them as industrial-grade. Balluff discusses how companies can determine if their RFID equipment will survive in industrial environments. (8 pages)
  • Progettazione del magazzino di una impresa metalmeccanica con l’uso di tecnologia RFID (Published in Italian)
    Published February 2014
    Di seguito, viene proposta la sezione del lavoro di tesi di laurea relativa all’analisi effettuata a proposito dell’implementazione della tecnologia RFID in una azienda metalmeccanica che produce in proprio e fornisce, sia in Italia che all’estero, gru navali e sistemi di sollevamento per applicazioni in ambito marittimo. Ogni aspetto del progetto viene preso in considerazione sia in termini economici che tecnologici senza tralasciare l’impatto sociale che questo possa avere all’interno del contesto di lavoro. A cura di Roberto De Blasi, Università degli Studi di Palermo, facoltà di Ingegneria Meccanica.
