Hi Experts,

Anybody know whatis the alternative to the PCBA's barcode, should you don't have a space on your highly populated PCBA ? This refer to the boards' serial number, be it for tracebility purposes or shopfloor data collection purposes. I have a product with basically no space for the barcode label to be pasted on. I heard people talking about Tag ID, what is that ? Can someone help me to explain ? Thank you in advance.

thank you!!

I don't know about TAG Id, but we've gone to a 2D code to replace the linear code 39. It takes up a lot less real estate, and has duplicated information.

How about a RF ID TAG in a size of a 1206 component? http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,3973,89135,00.asp
