The article focuses on the expansion of the global market for radio frequency identification (RFID) which provide real benefits across multiple application areas at lower cost in the U.S. According to the author, the benefit of short-range wireless communication is driving the growth of near field communication (NFC), a technology based on short range 13.56 Mega Hertz RFID in applications including tire pressure monitoring and contactless payment. He added that such strategy can benefit from software-defined instrumentation using techniques similar to another fast-growing radio frequency (RF) field, software-defined radio.
