French lab takes RFID towards 10Mbps

The French research lab CEA-Leti claims to have demonstrated a contactless interface for RFID cards that operates at 6.8Mbps. The R&D centre said that it had created a prototype of a complete phase modulation system including a reader and a card.

While originally developed for simple authentication applications such as train and bus tickets, bank cards and access control only requiring low data speeds, CEA-Leti is currently working on optimising the signal processing capabilities to achieve speeds higher than 10Mbps.

CEA-Leti and Nokia say they have jointly developed a RF front-end chipset that supports high-data rate short-range communications between a reader, typically a mobile phone, and a memory tag, which supports a data rate of 112Mbps. Article
