Programming of RFID Devices



Embedded programming is a device software which plays an integral part in the electronics device. Embedded software’s principal role is not information technology, but rather the interaction with the physical world. It is written for machines that are not, first and foremost, computers. Embedded software is “built in” to the electronics in cars, telephones, audio equipment, robots, appliances, toys, security systems, pacemakers, televisions, digital watches, airplanes, missiles, process control, RFID devices, and monitoring systems, for example. Embedded software is usually written for special-purpose hardware. Application-specific embedded software has been developed for programming RFID devices to function as coordinator, router, end device, and various other purposes (Bandyoadhyay et al., 2007).
