Smart Active Labels RFID

The smart active label (SAL) may be viewed as an evolutionary extension of the chipbased smart label technology, but with added complementary attributes.
A SAL may be considered as a structure in which a low cost RFID inlet or inlay (tag comprising RFID chip and antenna structure) is connected to a low profile power source and embedded into a label or similar construction capable of carrying printed information and graphics. Although they share some of the physical attributes of passive smart labels the capabilities engendered through the availability of integral power provision distinguish the SAL devices quite clearly from their passive counterparts.
