Is It Possible to Read TID and EPC Tags With a Single Command?
Would that mainly depend on a manufacturer's design?
To answer your question, I reached out to Sanjiv Dua, the CEO of RFID4U, a leading RFID training company. Sanjiv's firm trains people on the use of different types of readers. He says that Impinj has a proprietary command called FastID, which works only with Impinj readers and certain versions of its Monza chips. FastID can provide the Tag Identifier (TID), along with the Electronic Product Code (EPC). With other readers, sequencing the two commands programmatically will actually create one output, which is probably what you are looking to get. Here is a sample of the sequenced commands using the Impinj software development kit:
TagOpSequence seq = new TagOpSequence();
I hope that answers your question.
