RFID Technology for Libraries RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is the latest technology to be used in library theft detection systems. Unlike EM (Electro-Mechanical) and RF (Radio Frequency) systems, which have been used in libraries for decades, RFID-based systems move beyond security to become tracking systems that combine security with more efficient tracking of materials throughout […]

Both the Active RFID and Semi-Passive RFID tags belong to Battery-powered RFID technology. where the performance of the RFID tag is critical or a long read range is required, battery-powered RFID tags are preferred. The use of battery-powered RFID tags is rapidly increasing due to the decreasing battery costs, and the increasing inexpensive CMOS Radio Frequency
Integrated Circuits (RFIC) and microcontrollers that enables very low cost tags.

Battery Assisted Passive (BAP) RFID Tags are also called as Semi-Passive RFID Tags or Semi-Active RFID Tags. Semi-Passive RFID Tags operate similarly to passive RFID tags. However, Semi-Passive RFID Tags contain a battery that enables longer reading distance and also enables the tag to operate independently of the reader. One example is a data logger tag, which can take sensor readings automatically and run a real-time clock.

RFID Tags (RFID Transponders) are classified into three types 1) Active RFID Tags, 2) Passive RFID Tags, 3) Semi-Passive RFID Tags based on the power source to RFID tags. Active RFID tags refer to RFID tags which have their own power source, so they can recieve a weaker signal from the RFID interrogator/reader. Passive RFID tags refer to RFID tags which are powered solely by the RFID interrogator. Semi Passive tags refer to tags with a power source (usually a low cost battery) which can be used for on tag sensing, but not to boost range.

CryptoCompanion provides plug-and-play host-side cryptographic security for embedded systems. This plug-and-play convenience means that designers do not have to design or test the cryptographic algorithms. The companion chip implements the necessary algorithms and the entire protocol completely in hardware. CryptoRF product labels, tags, and cards are virtually impossible to copy and offers data hardware security.
