System Architecture for High-Speed Close-Proximity Low-Power RF Memory Tags and Wireless Internet Access
The authors have developed an open architecture platform for implementing passive Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) tags with a mass memory for close proximity environment. Purposes for such mass memory tags are, e.g., multimedia files embedded in advertisements or logged sensor data on a low-power sensor node. In the proposed architecture, a mobile phone acts as the reader that can read or write the memory of these RFID tags. The architecture also enables creation of a new type of wireless internet access suitable for, e.g., internet kiosks. The architecture is designed so that development path to a full Network on Terminal Architecture (No-TA) is feasible.
