I have read an article. (ISO 15693-2 Page 1)

Somewhere in it, it mentioned that : enter image description here

Now, I can't translate it.

What does this sentence mean?

  1. Subcarrier is a signal that its frequency is equal to Fs, And this signal is used to modulate another signal that we call it carrier and has a frequency equal to Fc? Is this right?

Update: And also what does this below sentence mean?

vicinity integrated circuit card

It is a card that has integrated circuit and is vicinity? or It is integrated circuit of a vicinity card?

  • Yes, you are right. – Damkerng T. Dec 30 '14 at 10:51

    I read Fs, Fc as labels, not values. – Kreiri Dec 30 '14 at 11:13
  • @DamkerngT. Would you please take a look at the Update section too? – TheGoodUser Dec 30 '14 at 11:24

Yes. That is correct.

vicinity integrated circuit card
It is a card that has integrated circuit and is vicinity? or It is integrated circuit of a vicinity card?

In vicinity integrated circuit card, "vicinity" modifies "integrated circuit card" (or "IC card", or just "card"). Vicinity card is used in contrast to proximity card. A proximity card normally has a range of 5-10 cm. IEC 15693 is a standard for such vicinity cards.


These following pictures should make it clear why the cards are called IC cards:

A passive proximity card for door access.

A passive proximity card with the plastic casing opened to show components: antenna coil and integrated circuit *(black object bottom center)*
(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proximity_card)

The lower picture shows the inside of an integrated circuit card. Two main components are clearly shown: antenna coil and integrated circuit (black object bottom center).
