Technology: RFID Overview
RFID active tags use modern IC technology

Recent developments in extremely miniaturized integrated-circuit (IC) technology have allowed for the development of miniature and intelligent RFID tags. Recent breakthroughs in very low power IC technology have allowed us to develop small low power active tags. While passive tags operate by generating energy from the field without any battery, these tags can be used only over a short read range. In the past RFID active tags have been large and have had a short life due to large demand for power. ActiveWave low power active tags that use the latest technologies, have a long read range combined with the long life and reliability of passive tags.

ActiveWave RFID readers use the latest VLSI integrated circuit and computer technology. This has allowed us to develop RFID readers that are compact enough to be positioned in control panels, or adjacent to other processes.

The core of the system is built around the RFID tags, RFID readers, host computer, and Windows based software. Each tag sends its data periodically. The RFID reader will cross-reference the tag's data within its self-contained database. After the reader receives new data, it will send the data to the host. The readers and the host communicate through a secure wireless link.

ActiveWave RFID systems have multi-tag capability. This means an ActiveWave RFID system can read several tags in the field at the same time. The read range between the tag and the reader is 100 to 140 feet. A single reader can cover a total area of up to 30,000 square feet. The ActiveWave RFID reader's wireless connection to the host computer has a range of approximately 500 to 1000 feet.

    ActiveWave RFID integrated solutions have the following features:

  • Hands free operation
  • Multi-Tag functionality
  • High security
  • Unlimited virtual memory
  • Easy system integration
  • Wireless connection between the RFID reader and host computer
  • User-friendly Windows based host software
  • Configurable real time inventory update
  • Very low power, highly reliable active tag technology
