Austria Microsystems, a global designer and manufacturer of analog ICs for communications, industrial, medical and automotive applications, has announced the AS3992.
The AS3992 UHF Gen 2 reader has an integrated analog front end and provides protocol handling for ISO180006c/b 900MHz RFID reader systems. It also features programmable DRM filters, predistortion and an increased receiver sensitivity of –86 dBm, and because of the reader ICs’ architecture it uses less power without compromising performance.
The AS3992 is pin to pin compatible with previous AS3990/91 IC’s, 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. Equipped with multiple built-in programming options, the device is suitable for a wide range of UHF RFID applications.
