UHF IDIC Demo Kit
Atmel® announces the UHF RFID long-range demo kit for the evaluation of its TAGIDU IDIC® ATA5590. The demo kit supports a broad range of applications including (intelligent) logistics, supply chain management, anti-counterfeiting, medical and more. The demo kit allows operating distances of up to 12 meters, enabled by the asynchronous low-power design architecture and the PSK-modulation feature in the return link (backscatter). This makes it appropriate for logistics applications, especially where metal containers or canisters filled with liquid need to be tagged. The demo kit consists of various labels and tags using the TAGIDU IDIC ATA5590 plus Deister Electronic GmbH's UDL 500, a long-distance UHF reader with two integrated antennas. Two versions of the demo kit are available: an FCC-approved version for the US with an operating frequency of 915 MHz and an output power of 4 W EIRP and an ETSI version for use in Europe which has 2 W ERP at 868 MHz. The TAGIDU IC ATA5590 is designed for intelligent passive tags and labels.
