This article demonstrates how to use the idChamp RS4 and iScanBrowser for iOS to write NDEF data to NFC tags. In the first section of this guide, we'll learn how to write an NDEF record to a tag. In the second section, we'll test the tag by reading the NDEF data. You will need: an idChamp RS4 RFID reader an NFC tag to write to an iPhone or iPad Before you get started, you'll want to download iScanBrowser from the AppStore, power on your idChamp RS4, and launch iScanBrowser once it has finished downloading. Write NDEF Data 1. Navigate to the Device Manager. 2. Tap on the…
Performance is important when it comes to implementing and maintaining an RFID system. Here are six common factors that can negatively impact an RFID system's performance. Interference Interference from other radio-frequency (RF) emitting devices (RFI), such as other RFID readers and Wi-Fi access points, can negatively impact RFID system performance. Power Supply As with any system dependant on electronic components, RFID systems are subject to the risks of a “dirty” power supply. Such power supplies can elicit strange behavior from electronic devices (such as RFID readers) that draw…
In its most rudimentary form, an RFID system is made up of two parts; a transponder (a tag) and an interrogator (a reader). The transponder, which consists of an inlay which has a microchip, an antenna, and usually a substrate (the stuff that holds the tag’s components together) and optionally an encasing to protect the inlay from various environmental factors, is encoded with information specific to the object it is attached to or associated with, such as a serial number. The interrogator reads the transponder’s information by emitting a signal to the transponder that prompts…
The primary difference between active and passive tags is that active tags have their own power source (typically an embedded battery) and passive tags rely on the RFID reader's propagation signal to power the tag. From this primary distinction stems a variety of considerations to make when deciding between the two types of tags. This article aims to help aid you in deciding which type of tag — active or passive — is best for your business application by laying out some of the most pivotal factors you should consider.   Active Tags Passive Tags…
The frequency range of an RFID system has a significant impact on multiple performance metrics like the read range and interference susceptibility, so it's important to make sure you select the right frequency for your business application or use case.    LF/NFC HF UHF Frequency range 125 - 134.2 KHz 13.56 MHz (global) 433, 865 - 828 MHz (varies regionally) Read range < 10 cm < 1 m 1 - 100 m Tag cost Relatively expensive Varies Inexpensive (in high volumes) Reader cost Relatively…
