Source: Texas Instruments
This paper examines the evolution of RFID labeling beginning with inlays and smart labels, then discusses straps and the benefits of straps labeling. It addresses straps as a more flexible RFID packaging solution, allowing manufacturers to better accommodate products tracked at both the item and case-levels in the global supply chain. This paper also discusses how straps provide a tool for cost innovation with high-volume tag production in the assembly line through lower per unit and lower capital costs.
