EMC Laboratory RF Radiated Emission Report for Passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Tags
This paper contains RF radiated emission and susceptibility data from passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and readers operating at 13.56 MHz, 915 MHz, and 2.45 GHz. Laboratory test procedures incorporated the methods of RTCA DO-160D (test procedures for aviation electrical/electronic equipment) and DO-233 (test procedures for consumer portable electronic devices (PEDs)). Only one commercially available system was evaluated per established operating frequencies.
Rationale: This document is created to support the AS5678 position that passive RFID tags do not interfere with any other electronic equipment on the airplane and as such does not cause any safety of flight issue.
