  • Patent number: 7148804
    Abstract: A system and method for the real-time concurrent detection of 13.56 MHz RFID and 8.2 MHz EAS identification tags using a single stimulus signal.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: January 26, 2005
    Date of Patent: December 12, 2006
    Assignee: Checkpoint Systems, Inc.
    Inventors: Ronald Salesky, John Paranzino, Nimesh Shah
  • Patent number: 7079009
    Abstract: Arbitration of multiple transponders, such as RFID tags, occurs in an interrogation field. The arbitration process is custom-tailored for individual applications, under software control, by the transponder reader or tag reader. Different wake-up slots are calculated for each tag during successive transmission cycles based upon the tag ID and the transmission cycle number. The tag reader may also send a special command to a tag to read its data and cause the tag to become decoupled from the environment. The tags may be selectively placed in either a tag-talk-first mode or a reader-talk-first mode. Furthermore, the tag reader may send a special fast read command to the tag which includes a read request and at least one parameter of the read request.

  • Patent number: 6963270
    Abstract: Arbitration of multiple transponders, such as RFID tags, occurs in an interrogation field. The arbitration process is custom-tailored for individual applications, under software control, by the transponder reader or tag reader. Different wake-up slots are calculated for each tag during successive transmission cycles based upon the tag ID and the transmission cycle number. The tag reader may send a special fast read command to the tag which includes a read request and communications control parameters including the number of time slots for transponder communications, the number of transmissions that an individual transponder is allowed to issue, and the data rate at which the reader communicates to the transponder. The tag reader may also send a special command to a tag to read its data and cause the tag to become decoupled from the environment.
