RFID Smart Cards: Technology and Applications

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) smart cards are a versatile and efficient solution for various applications. These cards use RF technology to transmit data to and from a reader, making them ideal for a range of uses.

Extreme summary on how RFID Smart Cards Work

Each RFID smart card has a coil embedded inside that connects to a capacitor and microchip. The coil powers the chip via induction current harnessed from the magnetic field surrounding a card reader. This coil also serves as an antenna to allow data transmission and reception from the reader.
