Can an RFID Reader Run in Tandem With Other Programs?

Posted By RFID Journal, 10.23.2014

Would it be possible to create a program that would continually read RFID tags while other programs worked, or would the reader act as another keyboard?

An RFID reader interrogates tags continually, and this information can be sent to a PC or server that is running another program, but it sounds like you are planning to use a PC with a desktop reader or some other kind of reader. Yes, it is possible to capture data from the reader while running additional programs, just as you can use Microsoft Word while streaming videos in a Web browser.
