GNU radio based RFID reader/writer


#1

Hi,

I am a student of Master’s program in electrical engineering (major :
telecommunications and dsp) .
As a master’s final project i want to develop RFID reader/writer based
on
GNU and compare the performance of RFID reader/writer which is not based
on
GNU to that of one based on GNU.
Is such RFID reader/writer based on GNU radio already available in the
market? and if not is there a starting point from where i can build such
a
reader/writer.

Regards,
Harshal Jadhav

There are many kinds of RFID. Which kind do you want to look at?
What frequency band are you interested in? Are they passive tags?

With RFID readers, there are h/w and s/w issues to be dealt with.
It’s important to keep them separate, so as to not draw the wrong
conclusions. GNU Radio != USRP, although we’re often in the habit of
using them together.
