RFID Journal Staff asked 6 years ago

I want store a Microsoft Word document on a 2-kilobyte HF RFID tag. The page I want to store contains 1,600 letters, which make around 200 to 250 words. Can you suggest any suitable tag for this, either UHF or HF?




Two kilobytes of memory is sufficient to store a single type-written page, or about 300 words. Sixteen hundred letters and spaces may fit, but it would be close. I would recommend a 4-kilobyte RFID tag. Marubeni Chemix makes such a tag, which is passive UHF.
