RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

[RFID] HOW DO I SELECT THE CHIP FOR AN RFID CL1 GEN 2 CHIP? - RF
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still
lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.
Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Post subject: [RFID] HOW DO I SELECT THE CHIP FOR AN RFID
CL1 GEN 2 CHIP? Posted: Wed Aug 31, 2005 6:53 pm
I need to select
a chip to serve the target market for high volumes EPC Global for pallets
and cases. Therefore before facing the antenna problems, I should select
the chip that I want to use for different labels. Is there a selection
criteria (a table, critical parameter list, and other)?
the logical blocks critical?
- Is the RF/Mixed signal design critical?
- Are the NVM architecture and cell type critical?
- Is the activation
energy and power consumption critical? If yes, how do manufacturers
spec the power consumption?
- Should I prefer copper technology
or aluminum just works fine?
- Is this only a price game or there
will be a "high-quality" offer for Class 1 Gen 2 tags? How do I define
- Any other idea or place in the Internet where I
can get the answers?
