1. A circuit for a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag, comprising:

  • a demodulator that is arranged to demodulate a waveform of a wirelessly received wave;

    a processing block that includes;

    a counter configured to determine an L-number from a duration of a calibration feature of the waveform, anda combining circuit configured to combine a first nonzero version of the L-number with a second nonzero version of the L-number so as to derive a BP-number such that the derived BP-number substantially equals the L-number divided by a preset non-integer divide ratio; and

    a modulator that is arranged to modulate a second wave with encoded symbols that have a periodicity determined from the BP-number.
