CISC Semiconductors Extends Its RFID Reader and Tag Portfolio

CISC Semiconductor has announced the launch of its extended Xplorer portfolio supporting a high-speed reader, inlays and tags. The Xplorer portfolio consists of the company's RAIN Xplorer Inline Tester and RAIN Xplorer Reel2reel Tester, as well as an Impedance Emulator feature.

"[RFID] solutions connect billions of everyday items in applications like aviation, healthcare, retail and smart manufacturing, where security, interoperability and reliability are a self-evident requirement," said Josef Preishuber-Pfluegl, CISC Semiconductor's CTO and business manager for RFID and NFC, in a prepared statement. "Our new RAIN Xplorer portfolio is the trust anchor along the development and production phase to ensure that only high-quality products will be launched in the market."

The RAIN Xplorer Inline Tester spots anomalies during the production process in real time. The device is flexible to create a performance matrix for enhanced analysis and enables performance testing on multiple frequencies on a single RFID inlay or tag at high speed. The RAIN Xplorer Reel2Reel Tester offers RFID tag testing on a reel at high speed for efficient production time. It complies with industry standards ISO/IEC 18000-63, EPC UHF Gen 2V2 and RAIN RFID, and has been tested on multiple frequency and power-levels pairs to quality tags for a particular application based on performance.

The Impedance Emulator feature for the tester allows testing of reader behavior under different error conditions. It debugs final RFID installations based on whether an error is on the reader or tag side, the company reports, and can perform irrespective of the deployment.
