Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID)


Since their conception, a plethora of RFID systems have been developed. Their popularity has primarily been driven by cost effective manufacturing techniques which allow for the production of a range of contactless RFID tags at a price which essentially makes them disposable - that is, the cost of the RFID tag is insignificant compared to the cost of the item being tagged, or revenue bought in or saved through tagging. With production costs dropping and new applications being developed, it is estimated that production of these items will grow from some 1.3 billion parts manufactured in 2004 to 33 billion by 2010. However, because manufacturing costs are key to this technology, the majority of the systems developed are based on only a few basic operating procedures.
