Murata has been engaged in the development of RFID tags since early on, and has built up an impressive track record of achievements.  In addition, we possess know-how concerning the communication environment attendant to the installation of RFID – including crucial factors for the prevention of interference with the IC tag, and the selection of suitable hardware equipment – which enables us to meet the complex and unique needs of our customers. We offer a complete RFID service, ranging from an analysis of our customers’ work and potential issues at the jobsite to the installation of an appropriate system.

Our end-to-end RFID implementation services comprises the following stages:

  • Consultation:  We analyse the customers’ current work processes, and define their unique RFID requirements, while offering a forecast of the effectiveness of the RFID installation and carrying out validations at the jobsite.
  • HW (hardware) selection: We propose the optimum IC tags and reader/writer modules for the customer’s jobsite environment, as well as other infrastructure facilities. Murata develops IC tags and reader/writer in-house, and can also customize them to match the requirements of the customer.
  • System design/development: Based on the HW selected in the above, we provide wide support from software development to systems construction, utilizing our internal software resources and ID solutions.
  • System installation/support: We install RFID systems that are ideally suited to the jobsite environment of the customer and carry out on-site training. In addition, we can also provide after-support.

Basic knowledge of RFID

RFID (radio frequency identification) is automatic-recognition technology that communicates wirelessly. Generally, a system or a part that uses an IC tag to identify or control various items via wireless communication is called RFID. Here, a description is given mainly of the features of RFID and the principle of wireless communication in order to provide basic knowledge concerning RFID.
