An Introduction to UHF RFID
What is UHF? The latest standardization of the Ultra-High Frequency RFID spectrum is the GS1 UHF Gen2 protocol (ISO/IEC 18000-63 ) , which defines the technical specifications (e.g. physical/logical interactions between devices, anti-collision algorithms, security commands, etc.) for RFID devices operating in the frequency of 860–860 MHz . The ITU designated UHF (Ultra-High Frequency) as the radio frequency range of 300 MHz to 3 GHz , while the IEEE defines UHF as only frequencies between 300 MHz and 1 GHz (the rest of the ITU–defined UHF frequency range overlaps with the IEEE...

How to Connect the Scanfob 2006 to the BlueSnap in SPP Mode
This support article provides instructions on how to pair the Scanfob 2006 Bluetooth barcode scanner with the BlueSnap standard Bluetooth to RS-232 adapter via SPP mode. For this tutorial, we will be configuring the Scanfob 2006 as the Bluetooth master and the BlueSnap as the Bluetooth slave. After you pair the Scanfob and the BlueSnap in this way, you can create a barcode of the BlueSnap's MAC address that you can scan (with the paired Scanfob 2006) any time you want to connect to the BlueSnap.

RFID Tag Components
Inlay The tag inlay consists of the integrated circuit (IC) , an antenna, and a substrate to hold it all together. The inlay, on its own, is a fully functional tag; ready to be packaged into either a smart label or another casing. Integrated Chip (IC) The IC is an electronic circuit or microchip that is manufactured at a semiconductor plant. This microchip contains a memory store and a microprocessor or decision making (logic) unit. The IC is configured either as a passively powered device (powered by inductive coupling generated from another self-powered device) or as an actively powered...
Improve RFID/NFC/UHF Read Range
There are a handful of factors that can affect RFID, NFC, or UHF tag read ranges. If you're interested in improving the read range of your RFID application or use case, continue reading! Tag Characteristics Inlay Size — As a rule of thumb, the bigger the tag inlay, the longer the read range. Of course, it is important to remember that the variation of read ranges determined by the tag inlay size is within the constraints of the tag type (e.g. NFC, UHF) and frequency (e.g. HF, LF, UHF). Tag Placement — Tag placement can make a huge different on the read range of the tag. For...
Which RFID Readers Go with Which Tags?
Decoding the Different Types of RFID There are many different ISO standards, protocols, and physical differences between various RFID tag types. Choosing compatible readers and tags can be tricky, especially for an RFID novice. For the purposes of this explanation, we’ll only focus on passive RFID, specifically, Low-Frequency (LF), High-Frequency (HF), Near Field Communication (NFC), and NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF). For a little bit of background, here are some examples of how each type of RFID tag is used. Passive RFID examples: ♦ Employee and / or Student Access control...
