What are you doing with a Hammer on the DogBone over the Crab?

You could even be putting your Belt on the Web, while looking at the Frog on the Corkscrew and playing with your Banjo.  Or holding the Trident with a Button draped over the HoneyComb under a Monster with a PaperClip.  You could take a Blade to the Imperial, Lasso a Propeller, and Squiggle the Spyder!

What am I doing? I’m writing about some of the names of the RFID UHF inlays that are currently being produced.  No longer is it just a technical number such as JD-234; manufacturers now call inlays by what they visually look like!  So a Frog is a UPM Raflatac UHF Global 860 ~ 960 Gen 2 Power Series Inlay

and a Belt is another UPM Raflatac UHF Global 860 ~ 960 Gen 2 ShortDipole Series inlay.

Well I do think that the Inlay called the Frog does have some sort of resemblance to a Frog and possibly the one above does look kinda like a belt and it really is easier to remember a Frog and a Belt than a JD-234 and an TF-1969 so I’m OK with it.

Most people really don’t realize just how many inlays there are available for UHF let alone other frequencies and even then people are not aware that you could have a copper, silver or aluminum antenna on the inlay and each one provides different read characteristics.

To help people understand more about what inlays are and what they look like SkyRFID Web site has added a few new pages http://www.skyrfid.com/index.php?pr=RFID_Tag_Inlays for Tag Inlays and other pages for Tag Design, Tag Read Distances and Tag IC’s to help people understand more about RFID tags.  Take a look at the pages and hopefully you will get a better understanding of the tag technology.
