BIG Squid RFID uses an integrated microchip and antenna that reads information. The combination of chip and antenna is called an RFID tag. There are two types of tags, and therefore two types of systems, active and passive. In passive systems, which are most common, an RFID reader transmits an energy field that "wakes up" tag and provides power for tag to operate. In active systems, a battery in tag is used to boost effective operating range of tag and to offer additional features over passive tags, such as temperature sensing. The radio waves that are sent back and forth between tag and transmitter contain data in tag, and this data is then converted by reader and transferred into a computer system.
Companies are focusing on passive UHF tags, which costs less than 50 cents today in volumes of 1 million tags or more. Their read range isn't as far -- typically less than 20 feet vs. 100 feet or more for active tags -- but they are far less expensive than active tags and can be disposed of with product packaging.

The Key Components to an RFID System are a number of components including tags of different sizes catering different industrial needs, RFID readers and system software.
An RFID reader, usually connected to a Personal Computer, serves same purpose as a barcode scanner. It can also be battery-powered to allow mobile transactions with RFID tags. The RFID reader handles communication between Information System and RFID tag.
The BIGSquid RFID Software collects, permutes and stores data collected from tag in a back end like MySQL, SQL Server etc. This is usually similar to any other data collection software. Company Profile
