Synthesizing UHF RFID Antennas on Dielectric Substrates

A new application note featuring NI AWR Design Environment discusses a new method used for optimizing radio-frequency identification (RFID) antennas and describes two examples of RFID antennas created using this technology. The new design approach utilizes the new NI AWR Software product AntSyn™ antenna synthesis and optimization technology, which employs evolutionary algorithms (EAs) to efficiently explore the design space and automatically determine the best performance options.
