Types Of RFID

Knowledge (FYI)

Types Of Radio Frequency (RF)
There are 3 basic types of tags:
Passive
Semi - Passive (sometimes called "semi - active")
Active

ISO 18000 covers 5 RFID air interface frequencies:
<135 kHz
13.56 MHz
433 MHz
860 ~ 960 MHz
2.45 GHz.

Passive tags have no batteries and rely on the electromagnetic wave from the reader to build up enough power in the tag’s integrated circuit to send back the UID response to the reader.
Passive RFID tags and readers communicate by coupling the transmitter to the receiver using:
Load Modulation in the near field (close range) is used in LF, HF and some UHF
Backscatter is used in the far field (longer range) for UHF and Microwave
In near field communication the tag communicates with the reader by electromagnetic inductance. The coiled antennas of the tag and reader form a transformer. The reader uses the carrier wave and changes the amplitude (displacement/size), phase or frequency. The tag detects this as a change in modulation and responds appropriately.
