Radio frequency identification systems. Survey

Alexander S. Korotkov


The paper considers classification, design concepts and circuit engineering of radiofrequency identification devices. A survey on circuit designs for the readers and passive tags of the system is presented. The survey results indicate the perspectivity of implementation of particular communications protocols and of ultrawideband systems in order to provide multiple access under the collision conditions.
