Walki 4E TechnologyA Solution for Sustainable RFID
RFID antennas are traditionally produced in a wet, chemical-based process using etching technology. As is well known, the etching process has many limitations when it comes to speed, environmental sustainability, the feasibility of web materials and production economy. Committed to finding solutions that are both functional and sustainable, Walki challenged the traditional process with an entirely new approach, based on its thorough technological expertise in laminates and bold, out-of-the box thinking. The result is unique and superior technology, based on special lamination and laser patterning. Walki has coined a proprietary method, Walki 4E—a new, innovative manufacturing process for flexible circuit boards with potential applications ranging from RFID antennas to solar cells and batteries. At this phase, Walki 4E will be used for UHF RFID antennas, for which it offers numerous advantages compared to traditional manufacturing methods.
Speaker:Sami Liponkoski, Busiiness Line Manager, 4E Technology, Walki Group
How RFID Solutions Drive New Business Benefits
RFID hardware has become more reliable over the past few years, enabling companies to take advantage of RFID data in new and powerful ways. Software solutions are enabling firms to reengineer processes and deliver more value. In this session, our panel of experts will explain how businesses are leveraging these new capabilities.
Moderator:Michael Liard, VP of Auto-ID and Data Capture, VDC Research
RFID: Solutions for Daily Life
Radio frequency identification touches our everyday lives, with its influence reaching beyond supply chain efficiencies. Smart phones incorporating Near Field Communication (NFC), such as NXP Semiconductors' Google Nexus-S, extend e-conveniences to the general public, and suppliers of fast-moving consumer goods and electronic components are exploring unchartered uses in authentication and device provisioning. Learn how NXP's RFID solutions satisfy multiple applications, including low-frequency (LF), high-frequency (HF), ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) and NFC. Hear about leading-edge innovations applicable to a broad array of complimentary solutions for a myriad of applications, and discover how they can enhance conventional track-and-trace deployments. NXP, which provides high-performance mixed-signal (HPMS) and standard product solutions leveraging the company's RF, analog, power-management, interface, security and digital-processing expertise, offers multi-RFID applications without compromising design, performance or convenience.
Speaker:Victor Vega, Marketing Director for RFIDNorth America, NXP Semiconductors
RFID in Aerospace and Defense: Driving Visibility From Manufacturing to MRO
Many of the most complex manufacturing and supply chain operations are in the aerospace and defense sector, in which component parts and finished goods need to be tracked across their entire lifecycle—from initial manufacture to time in service. RFID can play a critical role in process efficiency, by automating part marking, supply chain management, tool tracking, work-in-process tracking and aircraft maintenance. A panel of aerospace and defense OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers will share best practices for automating processes with RFID, based on their own implementations. They will also discuss how the technology can address emerging industry trends, including supply chain integration, ATA Spec 2000 and U.S. Department of Defense initiatives.
Speakers:Todd Boyle, Material and Process Engineer, Rockwell Collins
ROI in Asset Management
If you could save tenfold on the time and cost it takes to conduct asset inventories, reduce capitol expenditure spending by 15 percent and improve audit accuracy, would you spend 30 minutes learning how to get an immediate ROI from real-time asset management? See you in Orlando.
Speaker:Diana Hage, CEO, RFID Global Solution
Security and Privacy in RFID
RFID systems and applications consistently gain in maturity, becoming increasingly automated and continually enabling new heights of process sophistication. The result is an improved and more convenient world in which logistical streams of goods are transparent, people and objects can be uniquely identified and transactions take place at lighting speeds. With these new and innovative capabilities, however, come threats to privacy, denial-of-service and replay attacks specifically designed for RFID, to name just a few. In this presentation, the speaker will discuss this new environment and its ever-changing landscape of vulnerabilities in light of specific applications to deduct a classification of solutions and subsequent security needs, and present specific—proprietary and open—technologies focused on securing RFID systems. These will be presented in regard to security strength and implementation cost.
Speaker:Chris Hanebeck, VP of Product Management and Marketing , Revere Security
