Anadigm® has released the RangeMaster™, a chipset that allows system vendors to design and maintain a single "universal" reader that can be customized to read different radio frequency identification (RFID) tag types, with different modulation schemes and frequencies. RangeMaster uses a customized Field Programmable Analog Array (FPAA) in conjunction with an RFID State Machine, enabling system designers to develop a universal RFID tag reader that can support multiple protocols and frequencies. By allowing standardization around a single printed circuit board to support multiple end products and markets, RangeMaster simplifies and improves product development. It allows EPC2 frequency pair decoding or selectable single frequency decoding. The chipset also provides anti-saturation control and can extract all data frequencies from DC to 800 kHz, and selected frequencies up to 3 MHz. RangeMaster fully supports EPC Global Gen 1 and Gen 2 (class 0, 1, 2) and ISO18000-6 standards.
