RFID implementation

I have a question regarding RFID impl. and testing process. Is there any standard  procedure ?
What is the other equipment needed for the implementation?
Is it required to map the em field strength on the reading area? or just its the bext way to go by trial and error positions.

Re: RFID implementation

Generally it is called sitesurvey which involves roughly the following steps...

- Product Tagging Test
- Scanning the area with a spectrum analyzer
- Determine a place to install your readers. Avoid metal and water
- Trial and error:  keeping testing and adjust the attennae and readers until you get the result that you want

Radio Frequency Identification
Call for Papers
The International Journal of Antenna and Propagation (IJAP) is publishing a special issue on radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies. RFID systems are used for electronically identifying, locating, and tracking products, animals, vehicles. Passive tags (transponders) do not have a battery and have limited range, typically about one meter. Active tag systems have a power source and much longer range. Current RFID research and development include theory, antenna design, wireless communication, networking, system-on-chip IC development, database management, propagation theory, signal processing, embedded system design, and more.

This special issue is to present new RFID-related techniques to address theoretical and technical implementation challenges

Papers that reflect the current and future methods are solicited.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Reader and tag antennas
Metallic object tag antenna design
RF- and antenna-related techniques to improve the recognition rate of RFID
Miniaturization of tag antenna
Reading range for different antennas
RFID measurements and modeling
Printable tag design and analysis
Active and passive tag antennas
Location technologies
RFID near-field and far-field analyses
RFID impedance matching and related topics
Smart label tag antennas
RFID and USN system (ubiquitous sensor network)
Authors should follow International Journal of Antennas and Propagation manuscript format described at the journal site Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through International Journal of Antennas and Propagation Manuscript Tracking System at, according to the following timetable:

Manuscript Due March 1, 2007
Acceptance Notification July 1, 2007
Final Manuscript Due October 1, 2007
