RFID Tag Design
SkyRFID prides itself not only in its ability to supply standard production tags/transponders for all RFID frequencies, we also can provide full customization services for your specialized tag requirements.
Not all RFID inlays perform the same even though they appear to look identical when viewed with your naked eye. SkyRFID can supply you with standard production inlays encapsulated or packaged to your needs, and we can also supply you with special higher performance inlays and finished tags.

While many people are familiar with some of the inlay manufacturers, most people are not aware that an inlay such as the Avery Dennison Paperclip above can be produced with a copper, silver or aluminum antenna. Each of these 3 different antenna materials produces different read results! In addition to the antenna, how the inlay is attached to the antenna and what materials are used to attach the antenna also adds to the readability percentage and read distance equation.
RFID Tags can be tuned to the material or object that the tag is going to be attached to. When you know that a tag must be attached to a specific surface we can tune your tag order so that you obtain the maximum read range when the tag is attached to the material(s) that you specify with either the standard manufacturers inlays or the higher performance inlays.
If your application needs are such that the inlay and encapsulation/packaging requirements of a standard tag will result in too high of a read range, we can de-tune the tag so that you obtain only the read distance that you require. This is expecially good when using high read distance inlays and you need to keep the read range to 1 - 2 Meters (3 - 6 feet) as the standard range of 5 - 7 Meters (16 - 22 feet) would cause too many false reads due to the proximity of other tags.
In addition to the tuning/detuning of standard and high performance inlays SkyRFID can also supply full engineering design and prototyping services for custom tags. We can provide custom or boutique tags in 125 kHz., 134.2 kHz., 13.56 MHz. the 860 ~ 960 MHz. range and the 2.4 GHz frequencies.
Through our strategic relationships we have access to some of the finest equipment and brightest engineers in the world. Through them we can provide services to engineer and prototype a custom tag consisting of tailored integrated ciruits (IC's) and customized antenna coupled with encapsulation/packing materials that meet or exceed your unique RFID requirements. A sample of each material that the tag will be attached is required to allow us to successfully engineer and prototype the tag you seek.
Once you approve the prototype samples we can then provide you with full production runs of these custom tags at similar costs to standard production runs making this the perfect solution for your unique application requirements.
