PDF417 is a 2-dimensional stacked bar code created by Symbol Technologies in 1991. It is one of the most popular 2D codes because of its ability to be read with slightly modified handheld laser or linear CCD scanners. PDF stands for Portable Data File and 417 represents the 17 modules of 4 bars and spaces that make up each code. Each symbol also has start and stop bar groups that allow the code to be easily identified.
