Identiv, Inc. has expanded design and prototyping capabilities at its cutting-edge IoT engineering center outside Munich, Germany, offering companies of all sizes a fully optimized development platform for specialty radio frequency identification (RFID)-based IoT devices.
Identiv partners with IoT innovators to realize their vision for embedded RFID-enabled IoT devices. Identiv’s top-tier engineering team works with customers from concept to design, prototyping, and even early-stage production runs to not only imagine their next industry-changing product, but to refine it into a solution that can be scaled to high-volume production.
IoT project requests often include customer requirements to integrate new technologies or components like flexible batteries. In the initial customer design phase, the R&D team in Germany produces small quantities as hand samples and for subsequent proof-of-concept evaluations.
The R&D lab recently added production, converting, and testing equipment to achieve higher volume end-to-end prototyping and controlled runs. This feature addresses a frequent customer request for trial-sized volumes during the real-time design and development process of complex RFID devices.
With increased volumes resulting in faster turnaround times for prototypes, Identiv and its customers can perfect the device design and scale-volume production processes on the exact same equipment that runs in our high-volume production facilities in Southeast Asia.
“Our IoT engineering team is highly regarded for its ability to support customers from initial design and prototyping through proof-of-concept and then into full-scale production,” said Amir Khoshniyati, VP and GM of IoT, Identiv. “Customers come to Identiv because we are the industry’s go-to specialty provider for advanced RFID applications. Our world-class team can equally and efficiently support the biggest corporations with very stringent requirements or fast-paced, nimble startups driving new use cases in the IoT. The unique combination of expertise delivered by our R&D team, spanning radio frequency, readers, conversion, and more, is truly unparalleled in the RFID industry.”
