UHF passive RFID is becoming increasingly popular in the retail market (particularly for tagging apparel) due to its cost effectiveness, ease of use, scalability and reliability. To improve supply chain visibility, many retailers would like apparel suppliers to affix tags to items at the point of manufacture. This results in the need to encode the tagged items at a later point in time, often after they have been packaged.
This application note describes how one might design a robust bulk encoding system using ThingMagic UHF RFID technology. We assume the reader of this application note is generally familiar with both RFID technology and the ThingMagic MercuryAPI.
