      Radio frequency identification, or RFID, is a generic term for technologies that use radio waves to automatically identify people or objects. The most common applications are payment systems, access control and asset tracking. Increasingly, retail and pharma companies are looking to use RFID to track goods within their supply chain, to work in process and for other applications.

Tag collision occurs when more than one tag reflects back a signal at the same time, confusing the reader. Different designs have used different systems for having the tags respond to the reader one at a time. These involve using algorithms to "singulate" the tags. Since each tag can be read in milliseconds, it appears that all the tags are being read simultaneously. For that reason, many algorithms have been developed. In this study, a hardware random number generator is designed to use in EPC C1G2 RFID standard based tags applications. It is researched that this design is suitable for standard or not.
