WHAT CAN RFID BE USED FOR?

RFID tags come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes; they may be encased in a variety of materials:
* Animal tracking tags, inserted beneath the skin, can be rice-sized.
* Tags can be screw-shaped to identify trees or wooden items.
* Credit-card shaped for use in access applications.
* The anti-theft hard plastic tags attached to merchandise in stores are also RFID tags.
* Heavy-duty 120 by 100 by 50 millimeter rectangular transponders are used to track shipping containers, or heavy machinery, trucks, and railroad cars.

RFID devices have been used for years to identify dogs, for a means of permanent identification. Dog owners had long used tattoos, permanent ink markings, typically on the ears. However, these can fade with age and it may be difficult to get the animal to sit still while you examine him for markings.

Many musical instruments are stolen every year. For example, custom-built or vintage guitars are worth as much as $50,000 each. OPP IOT, a China company specializing in RFID microchips for instruments, has embedded tiny chips in 30,000 Fender guitars already. The database of RFID chip IDs is made available to law enforcement officials, dealers, repair shops and luthiers.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING RFID TECHNOLOGY INSTEAD OF TRADITIONAL BARCODES?

While RFID offers several benefits not provided by traditional barcodes (listed below), it is not necessarily always the better choice. Always consider your use case prior to diving into an implementation.

I.Eliminates Line of Sight: RFID eliminates the need to position the laser of a scanner across the entire barcode, allowing RFID to be used when the RFID tag is not in direct view of the scanner. This allows users to track and read assets in a sealed container, embedded within the asset or underneath other products/assets in a stack. Barcodes need that line of sight to perform the identification task.

II.User Intervention: RFID readers can be installed to read all the time, eliminating the need for an operator to actuate the scan function. Whether installed by doorways, garage entrances or in open areas on manufacturing floors, assets can be read as they are moved, without the user action (unlike barcodes).

III.Speed: RFID tags can be read at phenomenal speeds. Asset inventory can be taken very quickly as one RFID handheld can count hundreds of assets in the same time it takes for a single barcode scan. Average inventory counts taken with RFID are 15 times faster.

IV.Authenticity / Anti-counterfeit Technology: Unlike barcodes that can be copied and re-distributed, RFID tags have a chip-specific ID value that can be linked with the user programmable ID value. Linking these values together eliminates the possibility of improperly duplicated tags or copied ID values. Product manufacturers, tollways and retailers are embracing this characteristic and utilizing RFID to secure their products and services.

V.Writeable Tags: After deployment, RFID values can be written and changed in RFID tags without replacing the tags or removing them from the asset or product. This can be performed using RFID handhelds or installed readers. These tags can be “locked” and “unlocked” with passwords to eliminate unauthorized write operations in the field and protect the integrity of the system. Barcodes must be reprinted and replaced in order to change the value once deployed in the field.It is important to note that while RFID offers several advantages over traditional barcodes, it may not be the right solution for your particular application. Always consider your use case prior to diving into an implementation.

How Does A Passive RFID Tag Work?

Passive tags wait for a RF signal from an RFID reader, RFID reader sends power energy via antenna which converts the energy into an RF wave enough to power on power off RFID passive tag.Once Passive tag is received wave/power within the read covering zone, the RFID tag’s internal antenna draws in energy from the RF waves to make transaction btw reader and passive tag.

Generally speaking, three main parts make up in a passive RFID system – an RFID reader or interrogator, an RFID antenna, and RFID tags. Unlike active RFID tags, passive RFID tags only have two main components – the tag’s antenna and the microchip or integrated circuit (IC).

As the name implies, passive tags wait for a signal from an RFID reader. The reader sends energy to an antenna which converts that energy into an RF wave that is sent into the read zone. Once the tag is read within the read zone, the RFID tag’s internal antenna draws in energy from the RF waves. The energy moves from the tag’s antenna to the IC and powers the chip which generates a signal back to the RF system. This is called backscatter. The backscatter, or change in the electromagnetic or RF wave, is detected by the reader (via the antenna), which interprets the information.

As mentioned above, passive RFID tags have no internal power source, and a standard passive RFID tag consists only of an IC and internal antenna; this basic structure is commonly referred to as an RFID inlay. Countless other types of passive RFID tags exist on the market, but all tags generally fall into two categories – inlays or hard tags. Hard RFID tags are durable and made of plastic, metal, ceramic and even rubber. They come in all shapes and sizes and are typically designed for a unique function, material, or application.

EM4450 EM4550 chip CARD

The EM4450/EM4550 is a CMOS integrated circuit intended for use in electronic Read/Write RF Transponders. The difference between EM4450 and EM4550 is that EM4550 are bumped and has megapads for the two coils. The chip contains 1 KBit of EEPROM which can be configured by the user, allowing a write inhibited area, a read protected area, and a read area output continuously at power on. The memory can be secured by using the 32 bit password for all write and read protected operations. The password can be updated, but never read. The fixed code serial number and device identification are laser programmed making every chip unique.

The EM4450/EM4550 will transmit data to the transceiver by modulating the amplitude of the electromagnetic field, and receive data and commands in a similar way. Simple commands will enable to write EEPROM, to update the password, to read a specific memory area, and to reset the logic.

The coil of the tuned circuit is the only external component required, all remaining functions are integrated in the chip.
