A UHF RFID reader is a device using an Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) range, between 840 MHz and 960 MHz. Its extended read range compared to HF NFC readers enables one reader to interact with many tags at the same time, at a very high speed, within distances of tens of meters.
Optimal performances combined with very low-power consumption makes it ideal for battery operated handheld devices, such as mobile phones, but also for a large diversity of consumer, industrial and medical applications.
Its high level of integration enables the design of a complete UHF RFID reader system, using only an external 8-bit microcontroller. This eliminates the need for a complex RFID co-processor.
