Choose RFID Chip(IC) that suit you

IC, also called electronic circuits, microchips, or chips, are designed and manufactured by semiconductor manufacturers. 

IC is the most important part of the RFID tag. Choosing RFID IC determines carrier frequency, maximum read distance, memory size, function, coding scheme, security, and sometimes air interface. 

RFID TAG products have been packaged in different forms. You can already use the environment, cost, required storage capacity, and choose the ic that suits you.

What’s the RFID Chip Frequency?

RFID chips can be classified into three categories based on the frequency range they are used to transmit data: low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF), and ultra-high frequency (UHF). In general, the lower the frequency of the RFID system, the shorter the reading range and the slower the data reading rate.

Comparing RFID tag types: UHF vs. HF vs. NFC vs. LF RFID

Item Low Frequency(LF) High Frequency (HF) Ultra-High Frequency (UHF)
Frequency Range 30 to 300KHz 3 to 30MHz 300 MHz to 3GHz
Common Frequency 125 KHz or 134 KHz 13.56MHz (NFC) 860 to 960 MHz(UHF Gen2)
Relative cost $$ $$-$$$ $
Read Range ≤30 cm ≤10 cm ≤100 m
Benefits Minimal infection by metals and liquids High storage capacity and higher encryption security Lower cost, fast reading over long distances, and group reading
Applications Animal tracking,automobile inventorying,Access Control Anti-counterfeiting, packaging and labeling, contactless payment, library management Inventory control,item-level tracking,supply chain visibility and efficiency

Types of RFID chips by Frequency

Low Frequency 125KHz(LF)

Maximum read range 30 cm - Special Antenna and Tags - 2 meters
Low frequency (LF) is that the ITU designation for radio frequencies (RF) within the range of 30–300 kHz. Since its wavelengths range from 10–1 km, respectively, it's also referred to as the kilometer band or kilometer wave.
