Fourth, RFID technology development trend

Nowadays, China has also begun to develop its own RFID standards and adhere to the principle of “promoting standards with applications and applying with standard tapes” and issuing timely applicable universal standard frequencies to give Chinese companies a rapid development space and time. At present, the specific standard content has not yet been fully implemented, but it is certain that code management, core technologies and databases are the focus of future RFID work.

1. RFID will become more secure, practical and cheap

If RFID technology is to be widely applied in areas where information has better confidentiality requirements, there are still some technical problems, because currently there are no reliable security mechanisms for the widely used passive RFID systems, and it is difficult to keep data well protected. . Therefore, many RFID development service providers are fully investigating and seriously adopting security measures. Strong passwords, codes, and identity authentication technologies will be more widely used for R&D and application. If you want to destroy or clone RFID, you will be very difficult.

Also, RFID/NFC readers in smart mobile devices will enable people to conduct more extensive financial transactions on credit/debit cards or electronic wallets, mobile micropayments, etc., while printed electronics use organic and inorganic materials. It will also eliminate the need for expensive silicon chips. RFID tags will also be printed directly on the packaging so that they can be used more extensively for low-value goods – anti-counterfeiting or inventoried goods, and ultimately cost savings.

2. High-frequency and UHF are the main application frequencies of RFID in the future

Nowadays, most of China's RFID technology applications are dominated by medium and low frequency (such as access control). Because of the promotion of the application of second-generation ID cards, the World Expo, and various smart cards, high-frequency is entering a very historical period with an average annual speed of about 100 million. If the Chinese population will apply second-generation ID cards in the future, this application will maintain stable shipments for five years. At present, the concept of “Internet of Things” is used by the global EPC to depict people’s future beauty. The main applications are the distribution management of goods and warehouse management. The market is huge, and the electromagnetic characteristics of high-frequency and ultra-high frequency bands will be very high. Well play a role in this application area.

3. The increasing demand for RFID personalities has become more and more common in the industry.

As we all know, different types of RFID user groups, due to the different nature of business, industry, business scale, development stage and other attributes, will lead to a greater difference in the characteristics of RFID needs, the requirements for the application of RFID is also greater. Therefore, industrialization and segmentation will be the development trend of RFID in the future, and it will also be a sharp winner.

Therefore, RFID systems will not only become more powerful in the future, but will also more effectively address industry needs. Some companies have customized programs for this particular industry, or jointly developed application programs. This trend will accelerate in the future. In the future, as the experience of RFID vendors continues to increase and the technology continues to increase, more applications for the needs of the industry will be provided, from retail to warehousing, from manufacturing to government, from transportation to finance, and more. The customization of the RFID industry has become increasingly apparent and has become easier. By 2012, forward-thinking companies will fully adopt RFID as a corporate infrastructure to provide a stable data stream of assets, inventory, materials, real-time location and status to further enhance their competitiveness.

4. RFID will be more convenient and efficient, and it will evolve towards multi-function

With the continuous improvement and popularization of 3G mobile technology and IT technology, the development trend of RFID reader design and manufacturing will be multi-functional, multi-interface and multi-standard, and it will be developed in the direction of modularity, miniaturization, portable and embedded. At the same time, multi-reader coordination and networking technology will be one of the directions for future development.

Future RFID readers will become more sophisticated, more portable, and higher read rates. RFID tags can be used not only in liquids, metals and other environments, they can even be integrated into temperature sensors, can be washed and can withstand extreme temperatures, and can be used to monitor recording temperatures. Currently, radio frequency technology is very helpful for cryogenic transportation and remote sensing applications for foods that are sensitive to temperature changes. Today, these sensor tags are widely used in the cold chain/food chain industry and have outstanding results. In the food chain, RFID can achieve full tracking from the field to the dining table. Jiangsu Hengbao Co., Ltd. has developed product solutions such as smart cards and electronic label manufacturing, saying that “starting from one seed and finally being eaten by anyone can be traced.”

5. Increasing RFID networking and accelerating integration with other industries

When the application of RFID systems reaches a certain level, each product will be given its own unique identity through electronic tags, especially with the increasing popularity of 3G and triple-play convergence, RFID, Internet, and e-commerce will be the inevitable trend in the future. It will also change the way people live, work and learn. At the same time, as with other IT industries, when standards and key technologies are resolved and breakthroughs, RFID will also integrate with other industries such as 3C and 3 networks to form larger industrial clusters and be more widely used to achieve cross-regional and cross- Industry application. In addition, today's chip frequency, capacity, antennas, packaging materials and other combinations are becoming more and more product serialization, and RFID will integrate with other high-tech acceleration, such as combining with sensors, GPS, and biometrics. All this will promote the development of RFID from single identification to multi-functional identification.

6. Unification of standards and alignment with international standards will be the focus of China's RFID work in the future

Each RFID tag has a unique paired identification code. If its data format is diverse and incompatible with each other, RFID products using different standards will not be interconnected. This will be the circulation of goods under economic globalization. Seriously. Therefore, the inconsistency of standards is an important factor affecting the global development of RFID. At present, the RFID market has formed a rivalry between Japan’s “ubiquitous ID center” and the US’s two EPCGloble standards organizations, which are independent and incompatible.
