  1. Production Scale — UHF Passive RFID Is A Reality Today By Peter Blair, Reva Systems
    2/8/2007
    Over the past several years much has been written about the promise and potential of UHF passive radio frequency identification and in some circles the hype has bordered on nonsensical. If you have been skeptical about this technology, you are in good company. The misplaced idea that RFID was simply bar code replacement, the expensive price points for tags and readers, and the generally poor performance of most first generation solutions have all limited UHF passive RFID implementations to uniquely interesting pilots and proof-of-concepts. Or have they? Submitted by Reva Systems
