  • RKDT Dual Technology Proximity Readers and Standalones
    Published April 2011
    Secura Key has introduced its Radio Key Dual Technology (RKDT) line of HID-compatible readers and standalone units. This white paper covers proprietary protocols, development, card-data formats, standalone and Wiegand output, reader compatibility and HID compatible cards. (3 pages)
  • NFC in Public Transport
    Published April 2011
    This white paper was produced by members of the NFC Forum, representing a wide spectrum of the ecosystem required to develop and introduce public-transport programs based on Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. It provides a general overview and an introduction for transport operators and other entities to the use cases, benefits, and requirements of using NFC technology. Selected public-transport use cases are included, to illustrate how NFC can benefit both travelers and transport operators. (33 pages)
  • Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology and Measurements
    Published March 2011
    Rohde & Schwarz's Roland Minihold offers an overview of Near Field Communication (NFC)—a short-range wireless connectivity technology that evolved from a combination of existing contactless identification and interconnection technologies—and its uses, as well as RF measurements on NFC units, and shows some examples of measurement results.

  • The Cloud and RFID: Making Deployments Seamless
    Published March 2011
    Terso Solutions' Mark Sehmer and Nathan Pleshek discuss the use of radio frequency identification and cloud computing (Internet-based computing utilizing shared resources, including hardware, software and services, on an on-demand and as-needed basis). By "embracing the cloud," the authors assert, enterprises can deploy RFID much faster, while avoiding many costly upfront infrastructure expenses required for pre-cloud systems. (7 pages)
  • RFID for High-Temperature and Demanding Applications
    Published March 2011
    RFID continues to expand past supply chains to more demanding applications in manufacturing, health care, pharmaceuticals, automotive and rugged asset tracking. In this white paper, Xerafy addresses applications in which RFID tags face high temperatures, such as autoclave processes, harsh cleaning cycles and automotive manufacturing processes. This document introduces an RFID-in-metal tag family, the X II Series, that allows the implementation of a tag directly onto an asset early in the production process, thereby providing management with improved tracking information.

  • Temperature Management and the Perishable Cold Chain
    Published March 2011
    Cold-chain optimization for perishable foods is becoming increasingly important. Every year, more than half of the food produced globally is lost, wasted or discarded as a result of inefficiencies in the human-managed food chain. Intelleflex explains how companies can use RFID technologies to improve quality, shelf-life and revenues via pallet-level monitoring. (7 pages)
  • 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.
