A smart card or chip card is a plastic card with an embedded integrated circuit chip. This chip can either be a microprocessor that can add, delete, and otherwise manipulate information, while memory-chip cards (for example, pre-paid phone cards) can only undertake pre-defined operations.
Smart cards, unlike magnetic stripe cards, can carry all necessary functions and information on the card. Therefore, they do not require access to remote databases at the time of the transaction.
RFID tagging is an ID system that uses small radio frequency identification devices for identification and tracking purposes. An RFID tagging system includes the tag itself, a read/write device, and a host system application for data collection, processing, and transmission. An RFID tag (sometimes called an RFID transponder ) consists of a chip, some memory and an antenna.
RFID tags that contain their own power source are known as active tags. Those without a power source are known as passive tags. A passive tag is briefly activated by the radio frequency ( RF ) scan of the reader. The electrical current is small — generally just enough for transmission of an ID number. Active tags have more memory and can be read at greater ranges.
Users wear RFID wristbands where the inlays or chips inside the wristband interact with RFID readers and scanners over various radio frequencies. RFID is a contactless technology that means wristband wearers can interact without having to be in physical contact with a reader or device.
RFID wristbands used for events, point of sale, keyless hotel rooms, access control & security, counterfeit prevention, customer loyalty programs, and waterproof environments. Our goal is to help design a securely-sealed RFID bracelet that can reliably store and transfer data.
