B-Id focuses transponder development on the individualization of standard products When exposed to high temperatures, strong mechanical effects or material-related radio wave interference, standard RFID transponders quickly reach their limits in terms of resilience. Special solutions are required for challenging conditions. Every transponder developed specifically for a particular requirement is a compromise between robustness and read/ range performance. The RFID company B-Id specializes in taking all parameters into account and producing robust tags without compromising performance. If transponders are to be developed that must deliver optimum performance even under demanding physical environmental conditions, appropriate antenna tuning is essential, according to Yiwen Jin, Managing Director of B-Id, in an interview with RFID & Wireless IoT Global. “Numerous challenges can be solved by targeted tuning. In principle, this is not rocket science. Often, for example, an additional antenna winding is sufficient to achieve the desired reading result. However, not every transponder manufacturer is prepared to take these individual development steps.
