The RFID technology process starts with
a radio frequency identification tag, which is made up of a
microchip with an antenna, and a reader with an antenna. The
reader sends out radio-frequency waves that form a magnetic field
when they join with the antenna on the RFID tag. A passive
RFID tag creates power from this magnetic field and uses it to
energize the circuits of the RFID chip. The chip in the radio
frequency identification tag sends information back to the reader in
the form of radio-frequency waves. The RFID reader converts
the new waves into digital information which is then turned into
object information through integration with reference data.
Semi-passive RFID tags use a battery to run the circuits of the
chip, but communicate by drawing power from the RFID reader.
We have developed areas of interest on RFID, the technology of
RFID, and the leaders in RFID, such as Walmart
RFID program. We also have real-time
RFID news. We are developing resources
on benefits, business cases, and novel applications. We invite
you to explore our site. Please check back often as we will
continuously update our information.
Thank you for your interest in RFID
