Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is new individual identification media which takes the place of bar-code. If RFID tag is applied to medical environment, human error in the environment are prevented, since RFID uses wireless communication in its identification. However, its communication is affected by another wireless communications as electrical noise. In this paper, effects of mis-identification by Home use PLC (Power Line Communication), electrical-lamp shaped fluorescent lamp and electrical-lamp shaped LED lamp are estimated. An effect for aging of inverter circuit in electrical-lamp shaped fluorescent lamp is also estimated. In this experiment, capacitance in the inverter circuit is changed as a virtual aging.
