ITTC Project

Development of Reduced Form Factor Agility (RFID) Tags

Project Award Date: 06-20-2009


ITTC will develop several new RFID tag antenna designs. These include the creation of "T-tags" and "Omni-Mini tags" for demonstration. The current Portunus tag will be modified to accept the Portunus Higgs 3 IC. Researchers will develop a small form factor that aims to use a very thing material such as .030" susbstrate. Finally, ITTC will explore the development of a "World Tag" and small form factor FAT tags.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
