To apply active RFID technology in the various kinds of industry, it needs to quickly transmit a large amount of data. ISO/IEC 18000-7 standard uses the 433.92MHz as single channel system and its transmit rate is just 27.8kbps, that is insufficient for a large amount of data transmission. To solve this problem, we designed a new data transmission protocol using 2.4GHz band. The feature of designed protocol is not only making over 255bytes data messages using the Burst Read UDB but also efficiently transmitting it. To implement this protocol, we use Texas Instruments's SmartRF04 develop kit and CC2500 transceiver as RF module. As an evaluation of 63.75kbytes data transmission, we demonstrate that transmission time of Burst Read UDB has improved as 17.95% faster than that of Read UDB in the ISO/IEC 18000-7.
