Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) stores and retrieves data using devices called RFID tags: objects attached to or incorporated into a product, animal or person which communicate with an RFID reader or interrogator. This book proposes a linear two-port model for an N-stage modified-Greinacher full wave rectifier, predicting the overall conversion efficiency at low power levels where the diodes are operating near their threshold voltage. Included is an experimental procedure to measure how impedance modulation in the tag affects the signal at the reader, and a useful tool for choosing the most appropriate impedances.

From the reviews:
"In this agile book of just 148 pages, the reader is introduced to the design of a passive RFID system operating in the UHF band. ... The book is a useful tool for the RFID UHF system designer, and can also be a valuable guide for the newcomer interested in understanding the multifaceted issues involved in the development of RFID and of its specifications."
