Application family identifier The application family identifier AFI is used as a mechanism to select tags across the air interface, minimizing the extent of communication transaction time with tags that do not carry the relevant AFI code. A library may use the AFI in one of two ways. It also enables a library system to reject items that carry a different AFI code. According to the encoding rules different optional data elements may be selected, including for RFID tags of items in the same library. The encoding rules also enable optional data to be organized on the RFID tag in any sequence. And they provide for flexible encoding of variable length and variable format data.
