Abstract: Few technologies have recently received as much attention as RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification). There are as many different types of RFID technologies as there are different types of barcode readers, labels and data formats. In the maze of technical and marketing information it becomes difficult to understand the real capabilities of different products and to set realistic expectations for any RFID project.

The electronics manufacturing industry represents an excellent environment for RFID applications. After all, the factories that make the tags and readers should be the first ones to benefit from this technology. What is unique about our industry is the very large number of different components and materials that must be located at the right place at the right time. Most of these items are very expensive and many have special tracking and control requirements.

This paper provides an overview of successful RFID case studies in our industry.
