RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC— Porticos, a mechanical design and product development services firm in Research Triangle Park, is helping SAMSys Technologies of Durham NC bring their innovative RFID products to market.  Porticos recently completed the mechanical design of the SAMSys MP 9310 UHF RFID Reader.

SAMSys Technologies Inc.  is an international provider of Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) hardware solutions, offering their customers best-in-class performance with their emerging line of RFID tag readers and programmers.  In order to keep their competitive advantage, SAMSys recognizes the importance of reducing the time it takes to bring their products to market.  To succeed they must minimize the number of engineering iterations needed to meet customer expectations as well as government requirements.  Porticos’ extensive experience in electronics packaging for RF applications is helping SAMSys minimize development time.  Michael Koch, SAMSys Vice President of Engineering, noted that “When we brought Porticos in we were not meeting some of our critical EMI leakage requirements due to our mechanical packaging.  Porticos proposed and implemented design changes which allowed us to pass all of our regulatory tests on our first try.”

Porticos’ broad experience in electronics packaging coupled with their extensive background in shielded enclosures makes them a good resource for companies like SAMSys.  Porticos is currently developing the mechanical packaging for SAMSys’s next-generation products, due to ship to customers this quarter.
