Nowadays, RFID Products have been here and there. We know that RFID products are composed of RFID chips and other objects. As the key part of the RFID products, RFID chips and technology are undoubtly what we should most get known of if we want to get familiar with these RFID products. In this blog, let’s learn more about RFID such as its definition, origin, how RFID works, etc.rfid technologyYou can see the main structure instantly via the catalog below. Firstly, let’s start with the RFID definition.

What is RFID?

RFID, whose full name is the Radio Frequency Identification, is a wireless non-contact radio frequency waves technology. That is, to read/transfer digital data encoded in a smart label (RFID tags) using a reader, similar to capturing data from a barcoding.

With RFID technology, Auto wireless tracking becomes possible. For example, Tagging various items with unique RFID tags allows you to automatically track assets and inventory. Thus so much time can be saved! Need RFID products? You can click the following “Inquire Now” button to contact us!

RFID Technology Origin

Do you know what is RFID used for at first? Actually, RFID technology, is initially used by the U.K in the 2nd world war to identify ally planes. It has experience a long way to find its way to wider applications such as the RFID cards, RFID tags, RFID wristbands, RFID keyfobs.

As the technology develops, the price of RFID products shaply decreases, which speeded up the process that RFID products come into people’s daily life, improved the efficiency of work and life, and saved more energy and cost.


How Does RFID Work? <Hot!>

In fact, RFID is a method of Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC). By this method, people can realize the automatic objects identification and object data collection, the collected data will be auto entered into computer systems with minimal to no manual effort. Now let’s figure out how RFID works together.

RFID System Composition

RFID systems, which utilize radio waves, consist mainly of 3 components: a RFID smart label, tag, or card, an antenna, and a RFID reader. A typical RFID tag owns an antenna and an integrated circuit to transmit data to the interrogator (RFID reader).

RFID Working Steps

Here are the main steps of how RFID works as follows:

  • Step 1: The RFID reader transform the transmitted radio waves into a usable form.
  • Step 2: The RFID reader transfers the collected information to a host computer system through a communication interface and store the data in the database for later analysis.
  • Step 3: The information on an RFID chip has been electronically stored in a stable memory.
  • Step 4: The RFID label, tag, or card receives a message from the RFID reader and responds by giving its identification information including serial numbers, batch or lot number, stock number, production date, or other specific info stored in that memory.

RFID Typical Applications

In modern society, RFID technology has been applied to various industries. For instance:

  1. Asset tracking(eg. Newbega RFID animal tag – Injecting RFID tags to your pets or livestock to enable positive identification when moving them.)
  2. Inventory management
  3. ID badging
  4. Personnel tracking (eg. Monitoring and saving lives in an offshore gas and oil platform via the RFID tags worn by personnel as safety measures, thus enabling them to be monitored and located within a short period in emergencies.)
  5. Controlling access to restricted areas
  6. Counterfeit prevention
  7. Supply chain management(eg. Attaching the RFID tags to pharmaceuticals and tracking them in warehouses, during transportation, and when they reach their destined location.)
  8. Attaching RFID labels to products during production and tracking their progress until the final step.
  9. Using an RFID card when shopping and paying for goods.
