PRECONFERENCE SEMINAR

RFID Journal University

This seminar, RFID Journal's most popular preconference offering, is open to professionals across all industries and is designed to provide those new to radio frequency identification with the foundational knowledge needed to begin understanding how RFID can be applied to solve specific business problems, to choose the right option for a specific application and to select the right vendors to achieve a successful outcome.

RFID Basics
New to RFID? Here's your opportunity to gain a basic introduction to the fundamentals of the technology. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems, and the need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session will also include a brief overview of the EPCglobal network, the future of ISO standards, ETSI reader regulations and the latest standardization efforts worldwide. Finally, the relationship between different standards in the area of RFID and EPC technologies, including the latest EPC Gen 2 standard, will be presented.

Speaker:
Renata Rampim, Ph.D. Student, State University of Campinas - UNICAMP

10:00 AM

The Physics Behind RFID
Obtain a fundamental understanding of RFID hardware. This session will cover the different frequency bands used: LF (125 KHz), HF (13.56 MHz) and UHF (860 to 960 MHz and 2.45 GHz). The instructor will explore the nature of RF fields and radio propagation, including the complex areas of null spots, reflections, polarization and other issues. By explaining many buzzwords common within the RFID community, we will provide delegates with the terminology they need to understand the technology, and to work with systems integrators and other RFID vendors.

Regulations
Legislation regarding the use of RFID varies around the world and is subject to almost constant ongoing review. Standards will ensure compliance with legislation, and also guarantee interoperability between RFID systems manufactured by different technology providers. This session will offer an update on the latest developments by legislative and standardization bodies around the world.

Speaker:
Luiz Costa, Electrical Engineer, Flextronics Institute of Technology (FIT)

11:15 AM

Real-World Considerations
The instructors will discuss some of the important practical issues that must be considered when embarking on an RFID deployment. These range from the all-important cost of tags and interrogators to practical approaches to ensuring high operational reliability. Example application areas will be presented, in order to highlight how to apply these insights in the real world.

Live Demo: RFID in the Real World
Theory is nice, but wait until you experience RFID in action and see its potential—as well as the potential challenges you might encounter while deploying the technology. Our live demonstration of a UHF RFID interrogator with a variety of products will highlight many real-world issues that arise when deploying RFID. In addition, the instructor will demonstrate how antenna polarization and the presence of metal and liquids can affect the ability to read a tag on products, as well as various approaches to alleviating this problem.

Luiz Costa, Electrical Engineer, Flextronics Institute of Technology (FIT)
Renata Rampim, Ph.D. Student, State University of Campinas - UNICAMP

1:30 PM

Building an RFID Business Case
Developing an RFID strategy and business case is the first step in understanding how this technology can develop high performance results. The instructor will present various scenarios for RFID strategy and business-case development, and provide an in-depth look at components and output, including: data gathering and analysis, developing a hypothesis, examining current technical architecture, executing cost-benefit calculations, evaluating opportunities, finding the value and constructing an implementation plan.

Speaker:
Edson Perin, Editor, RFID Journal Brasil
