[The Chosun Ilbo, November 28 2007] Samsung to Mass Produce Mobile RFID Reader Chips

Samsung Electronics said Tuesday that it will start mass producing mobile RFID reader chips next month.
RFID stands for radio frequency identification, and RFID reader chips allow devices to wirelessly retrieve information on products that have electronic tags embedded in their packaging.

For example, an MP3 player equipped with one of the new RFID reader chips could play music from an album just by holding the player up to the RFID-tagged album packaging. A microwave oven with a reader chip could automatically set the cooking time for frozen food by retrieving the information from a RFID tag in the food box.
