Post-Conference Add-Ons (April 12)

The following post-conference seminars and master classes are available to add on to your conference pass choice. You can select one of these during the registration process.

02/11/16 - 03/24/17 03/25/17 - 05/05/17 after 05/05/17

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.

This instructor-led course, part of RFID4U’s Fast-Track series, teaches software application developers how to build the next generation of rich, interactive RFID applications for passive UHF readers and peripherals. Live presentations and demonstrations provided throughout the course are designed to offer students an opportunity to gain practical experience with the skills and concepts covered during the lectures, and include such topics as how to optimally capture reads in different scenarios, like conveyor belts, door portals, forklifts and handheld devices. In addition, participants will learn how to make decisions regarding performance and scalability, by selecting native API programming (including vendors’ SDKs) versus middleware. Participants will also understand structures such as ROSpec, AISpecs AccessSpec and RFSurveySpec, available via EPCglobal’s Low Level Reader Protocol (LLRP).

Additional Add-Ons at Special Rates

The following RFID Journal products are available to RFID Journal LIVE! attendees at special discounted rates. You can select any of these products during the registration process. If you select one of the How To Choose the Right RFID System reports, you will receive a CD-ROM when you check in and pick up your badge at the event.
