Meeting the ubiquitous nickel per RFID tag cost target requires the development of new very high-speed assembly methods and processes. The basis for our approach is to first assemble the chips on straps, thus achieving the high placement density needed to take full advantage of a new high-accuracy chipshooter. These straps can then subsequently be placed on antennas and inserted into labels using a flexible printing press. This approach can be very cost competitive and more mainstream than current alternatives.
Key words: High-speed RFID assembly, RFID Inlay Insertion.
