PuneChips Event: An Overview of RFID – 16 April
PuneChips, the community for all those interested in semiconductor design and applications presents an Overview of RFID by Ashim Patil, on 16th April, at Venture Center, NCL, Pashan Road, from 10:30am to 12-noon.
Abstract of the talk – Radio Frequency Identification
Product, people and document identification is now a huge challenge. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) offers an active ID mechanism that requires no intervention on the part of the user. This presentation will introduce the RFID technology, positioning and its variants. The speaker will also introduce Near Field Communication (NFC) and its differences with regular RFID. RFID and NFC applications across several verticals in India will also be discussed.
