In this paper, we introduce a passive transponder in which an LED is used for both a light transmitter and a receiver, and a solar cell is used for supplying power to the all devices in the transponder. The LED in the transponder operates as a photodetector in the receiving mode, and acts as a light source in the transmitting mode. The current responsivity of the LED detector was measured to be in the order of , and the receiving bandwidth with a load resistance of was about 10 to 30 kHz. Using the LED for an optical transceiver in a VLID transponder, the detection range was about 70 cm when the transponder was illuminated by the visible light from a LED array in a reader.
