What is the difference between RFID and NFC ?
|Frequency||Varies depending on the system; low-frequency is typically 125-134 kHz, high-frequency at 13.56 MHz, and UHF at 433 MHz or 900 MHz||Only operates at 13.56 MHz|
|Communication Range||Varies depending on the type of system used, the power output of the reader, and tag size/material; typically up to several meters for low-frequency systems and up to tens of meters for high-frequency and UHF systems||Shorter communication range of around 10 cm|
|Data Transfer Speed||Generally slower than NFC, ranging from a few hundred bits per second to a few megabits per second||Faster than RFID, with a maximum data transfer rate of up to 424 Kbps|
|Application Areas||Used in various applications such as inventory management, asset tracking, access control, and supply chain management||Primarily used for mobile payment systems, contactless ticketing, and data sharing applications|
