Vorbeck is a easy sole-source solution for the engineering, design and manufacturing of the world’s first and only graphene-based RFID labels and hang tags.

How we do it


Our antenna design process is an iterative process involving both electromagnetic simulations and physical measurements to optimize both tag design and system performance.

The tag designs start with simulations to assess tag properties. Several variations of designs are printed and tested in an anechoic chamber. Using the obtained measurements, the tag designs are further updated and optimized. After several iterations of simulations and tests we arrive at final designs.

The tags are then tested for their performance in complex environments. These propagation studies are again done both through system simulations and through measurements in our flex labs. Our flex labs are built to represent several real world environments the tags will encounter. A mini retail store with metal clothing racks and display cases, a library with various types of book shelves, and a warehouse with large racks, pellets, and a forklift. Performance of the tags in the flex labs and simulations are analyzed and used to tweak and optimize the designs.

The surrounding environment plays a critical role in determining the performance of RFID tags. Our holistic systems approach to the design process takes this into account and produces tags which are optimized to work in complex EM environments.
