austriamicrosystems, in partnership with Thailand's Infinite Electric, releases the Infinite Electric's INR 100 long-range reader. The device has been developed using austriamicrosystems' EPC Class 1 Gen 2 UHF RFID reader IC. INR 100 is positioned for use in mid to long-range interrogator systems and high performance applications.

austriamicrosystems' AS3990/91 UHF RFID Gen 2 reader chip, co-developed with IDS, is designed to be adapted to a wide range of product requirements, claim the companies. This enables customers to have one software interface for multiple products that individually optimize on portable, fixed, short, or long-range applications, they add.

The SimplyGen2 AS3990/91 is a single-chip, EPC Class 1 Gen 2, UHF reader IC. Suited to a wide range of applications, it enables a single-core design that can be spun into a family of products, claim the companies. The device includes an EPC Class 1 Gen 2 protocol engine for fast time to market, and is available with an integrated PA to further reduce the BOM. With its power optimizing functions, the IC enables customers to achieve the lowest power designs, while the optimal performance supports long range designs, such as Infinite's INR 100. The AS3990 is available in QFN 64 9mm x 9mm package and is specified for -45 to 85C.
