Best Practices In RFID Tag Quality Assurance And Testing

Source: Omni-ID

Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is playing an increasingly important role in a number of business-critical applications—everything from supply chain management and asset management to fleet tracking, work-in-process monitoring, and access control.

Key to the success of the technology across these applications and multiple vertical markets has been the development of robust, reliable RFID transponders (tags) that can be mounted on a variety of surfaces and support long-term, business-critical use cases. To provide this type of reliability, RFID tag manufacturers must develop robust designs, repeatable manufacturing processes, and dedicate themselves to following rigorous quality assurance testing. Only by providing tags that end users can confidently deploy in large numbers throughout an enterprise can manufacturers help to build a solid foundation for successful deployments.

Omni-ID®, a leading supplier of passive, durable UHF RFID tags, has developed a rigorous quality assurance testing program for its line of RFID products that isolates potential failure issues during the design phase, checks for imperfections in manufacturing, and guarantees high performance during the life of the tag.

This white paper will outline Omni-ID pre- and post-production quality assurance testing programs.
