Abstract: Much exaggerated hype and trivia have been written in the popular RFID literature about near-field as it applies to UHF tags. This overview aims to lay out a number of the facts and attempts to introduce and demystify things for those wishing to have a better knowledge and deeper insight into the practical realities of working in the near-field whether at 900 or 13.56 MHz, that is, UHF or HF, respectively.

Keywords: radio frequency identification; HF RFID tags; UHF RFID tags; near field; far field.
