Rfid: wondering what some more of the details are of this technology.

Put a field as a driver for a passive circuit and antennae emmitting some digital code at a frequncy, and some other receiver tuned to receive this and process..

Anyone know some more specifics?

Pretty informative, but I'm wondering how the mechanism of an EM wave triggers some IC with stored information - to drive a signal in an antennae with that info.. More of a wireless digital signal transmission question

At a basic level, each tag works in the same way:

* Data* stored within an RFID tag's microchip waits to be read.
* The tag's antenna receives electromagnetic energy from an RFID reader's antenna.
* Using power from its internal battery or power harvested from the reader's electromagnetic field, the tag sends radio waves back to the reader.
* *The reader picks up the tag's radio waves and interprets the frequencies as meaningful data.
