Benchmarking Passive UHF RFID Tags: Part 1

Post Conference Session
Understanding how passive UHF tags perform and why some tags do so better than others is critical to achieving high read rates in any RFID deployment. This session will explain the types of tag antennas, and how different antennas perform with linear and circular polarized reader antennas, tag detuning and shadowing. Participants will learn how to create test plans, procedures and metrics to measure read speeds for tags in isolation, or in a population of other tags.
