UNTERPREMSTAETTEN, AUSTRIA: austriamicrosystems, a leading global designer and manufacturer of high performance analog ICs for communications, industrial, medical and automotive applications, today compliments its existing range of market leading UHF RFID Reader ICs for Gen 2 applications with the AS3992.
austriamicrosystems’ AS3992 includes advanced features such as programmable DRM filters, predistortion and an increased receiver sensitivity of -86dBm. This means for the first time ever a system including AS3992 with a single design is universally shippable.
Strengthening the line of Simply Gen 2 reader ICs the AS3992 also continues to achieve best in class power consumption. This lower power consumption coupled with its new advanced features positions the AS3992 as the most advanced Gen 2 reader IC on the market.
“austriamicrosystems continues to expand what is already the industry’s largest portfolio of UHF RFID Reader ICs, while setting new performance standards,” affirms Bruce Ulrich Director of Marketing Consumer & Communications. “As the market leader in this product area, we will continue to define performance standards to power new embedded applications.”
With over 15 years of RFID experience, austriamicrosystems continues to help simplify customers’ designs and support them to achieve the fastest time to market. Unlike competing products austriamicrosystems’ reader ICs’ architecture is optimized for RFID. Other solutions adapt a classic non-ideal RF transceiver architecture, which compromises performance, increases complexity and consumes significantly more power.
The AS3992 UHF RFID reader is pin to pin compatible with the existing “Simply Gen 2” portfolio, enabling customers to achieve the right balance of performance versus cost with a family of products, which can be used without the need of changing the board.
