  • 13. What are RFID Systems? • RFID - Radio Frequency Identification • Uses Radio Waves to transfer Identity Data • Tags are physically attached to some object that needs to be identified/trackedFriday, 2 November 12Radio Frequency Identification Systems use radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from adevice attached to an object. "
  • 14. Aspects of RFID TagsFriday, 2 November 12There are many things to take into consideration whendesigning an RFID based system.There are quite a few of them, but some of them aremutually exclusive.
  • 15. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs PassiveFriday, 2 November 12Active means it has its own power source, whereaspassive gets its power from the interrogator
  • 16. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs UpdatableFriday, 2 November 12Apart from its unique ID, the data sent with ID is either:-1) always the same2) is different each time it is read3) or it has been changed at some stage
  • 17. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short RangeFriday, 2 November 12The distance between the object and the interrogator.Distances can range from 1 cm to 300 Km
  • 18. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short Range • Proximity (of the tags)Friday, 2 November 12If tagged objects are physically close togetherThis has an impact on how many tags per second can beread which has an impact on the type of reader and typeof tag neededthis can range from < 1 a sec to 300 per sec
  • 19. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short Range • Proximity Based (of the objects) • FrequencyFriday, 2 November 12The frequency of the Radio Waves. They can range from120kHz (HF) to 10 GHz (microwave)the distance between the object and interrogatordetermines the frequency at which the data is transmittedbefore the RF signal is too weak to detectRadio waves weaken at a rate inversely proportional to thesquare of the distance (1/(d**2))
  • 20. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short Range • Proximity Based (of the objects) • Frequency • Command and ControlFriday, 2 November 12There is the expectation that reading or listening for a tagcreates a side-effect in that something happens as a result
  • 21. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short Range • Proximity Based (of the objects) • Frequency • Command and Control • Interrogator talks first vs device talks firstFriday, 2 November 12communication is initiated by the interrogator or the deviceWith passive tags, device talks first is no longer usedtoday because in the earlier techniques of design andmanufacturing of the IC’s used couldn’t packed into asmall enough space the complex circuits needed for thesophisticated handshaking and control of the tagsDetailed reasons to follow
  • 22. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short Range • Proximity Based (of the objects) • Frequency • Command and Control • Interrogator talks first vs device talks first • Amount of Data RequiredFriday, 2 November 12The amount of data the device needs to store isdependent on the application requirements and datacapacities availableThey range from 1-bit to 64kb
  • 23. Aspects of RFID Tags • Active vs Passive • Static vs Dynamic vs Updatable • Long Range vs Short Range • Proximity Based (of the objects) • Frequency • Command and Control • Interrogator talks first vs device talks first • Amount of Data Required • CostFriday, 2 November 12of the tag and the interrogator/readerThe interrogators or readers are generally more expensivethan the tags and cost of tags start at few cents each to afew 100 dollarsthere are cases in which the tags can be 10’s of 1000’s ofdollars eachthe cost of the readers can range from 100’s of dollars tomillions
  • 24. The dataFriday, 2 November 12If tags are sourced from multiple manufacturers, themanufacturer code is needed because it is possible have 2or more tags with the same unique identifier.optional user written data such as serial numbers, partnumbers, locations, expiry dates, descriptions, lotnumbers, etc
  • 25. The data • Manufacturer CodeFriday, 2 November 12If tags are sourced from multiple manufacturers, themanufacturer code is needed because it is possible have 2or more tags with the same unique identifier.optional user written data such as serial numbers, partnumbers, locations, expiry dates, descriptions, lotnumbers, etc
  • 26. The data • Manufacturer Code • Fixed unique identifierFriday, 2 November 12If tags are sourced from multiple manufacturers, themanufacturer code is needed because it is possible have 2or more tags with the same unique identifier.optional user written data such as serial numbers, partnumbers, locations, expiry dates, descriptions, lotnumbers, etc
  • 27. The data • Manufacturer Code • Fixed unique identifier • Optionally, object specific informationFriday, 2 November 12If tags are sourced from multiple manufacturers, themanufacturer code is needed because it is possible have 2or more tags with the same unique identifier.optional user written data such as serial numbers, partnumbers, locations, expiry dates, descriptions, lotnumbers, etc
  • 28. Examples of tagsFriday, 2 November 12So what to tags look like?Active tag
  • 29. Examples of tagsFriday, 2 November 12So what to tags look like?Active tag
  • 30. Examples of tagsFriday, 2 November 12Semi-passive or battery assisted. On board battery isused to power everything except the antenna so allreceived power can be used for transmitting back thesignal which will be stronger than passive tags
