COUPON is: 1) The annual interest rate on a fixed income security, set at the time it was issued, at which that instrument will accrue and pay interest. 2) Small pieces of paper attached to nonregistered interest-bearing instruments that reflect the semiannual amounts of interest to be paid. These coupons are cut out and tendered on the appropriate coupon dates, and the interest is then paid.
RFID is Radio Frequency Identification Tag. An RFID is attached to and identifies a thing such as an item in inventory, a case of items, a pallet of cases, a car passing through a reader on a toll way, or a person passing through a doorway. It is like a UPC (universal product code) on items in a store, but can be scanned from a longer distance. A transceiver sends an activating signal and receives identification information. An active RFID tag has an internal battery and has a longer range than a passive tag which is powered by the radio signal it receives.
