2. The extraction, decoding, and presentation of data from a tag.
2. To follow a course of study at an educational institution or independently: Helene fully intends to read the classics when she goes to school next semester.
2. A wind instrument made of a hollowed piece of wood: Fern brought her new reed with her when she started her new position with the chamber group.
3. Part of the equipment needed when setting up a loom which is used to space the warp threads evenly: Elva's husband made the reed which she used when she was setting up her loom in anticipation of weaving a blanket.
Those who don't read have no advantage over those who can't.
The ancient Egyptian book Brandon read was written on papyrus which was made from a reed that grew near the river and one of the illustrations in the book showed a godlike figure playing on a reed instrument.
2. To have gained information through the perusal of information available in printed, written, or computer form: Frank read the entire list of words shown on the computer and realized that he didn't know all of the definitions.
3. To have reviewed something looking for potential errors: Timothy read the printer's proofs of his new book and was very pleased.
4. To have ordered or reprimanded severely: Greg's mother read the riot act to him because he refused to go to bed when she told him to do it earlier.
2. A term used to describe an economic or financial loss: The company was in the red last year and the possibility of a turnabout in the near future is minimal.
Madison read a large book with a red cover. It was an account of how the theater company wound up in the red because the management had not read the interests of the patrons correctly.
2. A large amount of digital information that can be stored and accessed, but it cannot be altered by the user.
3. An optical disk that is physically the same as an audio CD, but contains computer data.
"Storage capacity is about 680 megabytes. CD-ROMs are interchangeable between different types of computers."
2. A read-only memory which can be reprogrammed electrically in the electric field for a limited number of times, after the entire memory is erased by applying an appropriate electric field.
3. A kind of non-volatile memory used in computers and other electronic devices in order to store small amounts of data that must be saved when the electric power is removed; for example, calibration tables or device configurations.
Usually bytes can be erased and reprogrammed individually.
RFID tags that use EEPROM are more expensive than factory programmed tags, where the number is written into the silicon when the chip is made, but they offer more flexibility because the end user can write an ID number to the tag at the time the tag is going to be used.2. A form of read-only memory which can be electrically erased and reprogrammed.
3. An integrated-circuit memory chip that has an internal switch to permit a user to erase the contents of the chip and to write new contents into it with electrical signals.
This takes place when a reader reports the presence of a tag that doesn't exist.
Active tags have a longer read range than passive tags because they use a battery to transmit signals to the reader.
With passive tags, the read range is influenced by frequency, reader output power, antenna design, and method of powering up the tag. Low frequency tags use inductive coupling, which requires the tag to be within a few feet of the reader.
The read rate can also mean the maximum rate at which data can be read from a tag expressed in bits or bytes per second.
2. Tags that can only be read because they were programmed at the factory.
These tags are often used on reusable containers and other assets.
When the contents of the container are changed, new information is written to the tag. Read-write tags are more expensive than read-only tags.
Information can be added or changed.
