Features and Applications

The PICO UHF RFID Reader is an Ultra Low Cost EPC Class 1 Gen 2 compliant UHF RFID Reader system. Leveraging the AS399x family of UHF RFID Reader IC’s, provides the industries lowest BOM cost, best in class power consumption with the least amount of complexity

The PICO reference design comes in two parts namly the analogue (RF) and digital (controller) parts. The user can separate the two boards to fully prove out their own RF and digital parts. With this set up it also means the user can evaluate the suitability of RFID in their current system

Using the internal PA it delivers up to 17 dBm, this is ideally suited for those applications that have tight cost constraints such as consumer or mobile applications
