Abstract

Radio Frequency Identificaution, which is regarded as a potential successor to the bar-coding technologies and other automatic identification methods, would continue to be very important in the area of automatic identification. A basic RFID system consists of three components, antennas, a reader, and a tag. RFID's significant advantage is the contact-less, non-line-of-sight nature of the technology. Two wireless communication methods distinguish and categorize RFID systems, such as inductive coupling and propagating electromagnetic waves. There are four frequency ranges distinguished for RFID systems, such as low frequency, high frequency, ultra high frequency and microwave. The result shows that antennas printed on ordinary labels or cardboard with conductive inks could replace conventional solid copper RFID antennas.
