What Is Smart Tag?
Smart Tag is a business card size RFID tag with a display on it. It utilizes the e-paper to display information, such as date, company name and logo, barcode, and product name. Through Near Field Communication (NFC), information can be read using a PC/SC compliant FeliCa protocol supported NFC reader/writer, AIOI reader/writer, or other devices, such as NFC-enabled smart phones and tablets. It can keep data displayed on its screen without any electric power.
Power is used when data is read/written, or the image on the display screen is rewritten. Using Smart Tags instead of paper labels saves time and reduces environmental problems. A displayed barcode can be read by nearly every type of handheld scanner, so it is possible to immediately use these smart tags in your existing system. A Sony FeliCa Plug chip is mounted in Smart Tag.
