CISC Semiconductor has announced a software module for it CISC RFID Xplorer unit that is capable of recording and analysing the communication between the tag and reader in real-time. According to the company, the module enables the CISC RFID Xplorer Sniffer to analyse RFID reader and tag signals.

The detection and decoding of reader commands and tag responses is done in real-time. The CISC RFID Xplorer Sniffer lets the user to trigger on reader commands. It logs the communication between the reader under test and tags into a TXT file.


Complex waveform signals can be recorded and saved on the hard-drive in a stream file to make them available for further analysis both in the time and frequency domain. This includes message parsing, waveform analysis, frequency spectrum and link timing analysis.

The instrument delivers high precision result and premium receiver sensitivity that covers the RF band from 50MHz to 2.2GHz. The sniffer mode of the CISC RFID Xplorer supports multiple standards including GS1 EPC Gen 2, ISO/IEC 18000-63, RAIN RFID and upcoming ISO/IEC 29167 crypto suites.
