COMPLEX PULSE FORMING TEACHNIQUE USING AM DETECTOR TYPE CIRCUITRY AND THE APPLICATION OF CDMA TO RFID FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS READING OF MULTIPLE TAGS
A novel complex ultra wideband RF pulse forming technique has been implemented in this research, using the coefficients derived from discrete Fourier transform of a virtual pulse train. Incorporated in this technique is a multiple frequency communication systems designed such that transmitter receiver proximity and the fading effect of the individual frequencies make part of a corresponding modulation technique. A code division multiple access (CDMA) application to RFID to greatly reduce read time, while at the same time eliminating inter tag interference, has been investigated with the analysis of a typical cart aisle scenario. With the current rate of growth of inventory world wide there is a tremendous need for more efficient method of data gathering, data storage, and data retrieval. In this dissertation, the application of the CDMA RFID technology has been analyzed to demonstrate the potentials of integrating the RFID technology to the EPC global numbering system.
