  • Patent number: 9898630
    Abstract: A controller in an interrogation device performs, for each RF tag passing through an interrogation zone that is defined near an interrogation unit, an integration process of integrating a strength of a reception signal from the RF tag received by the interrogation unit. The integration process includes weighting of an integral value of the strength of the reception signal in a manner to cause an integrate value calculated for each reception signal to be larger than an integral value calculated for a preceding reception signal. When an RF tag moves to a predetermined position in the interrogation zone, the controller transmits, to a host device, an identifier of an RF tag having a maximum integral value selected from the integrated value calculated for each RF tag.

  • Patent number: 6281698
    Abstract: A waveform and timing generation circuit 28, a skew circuit 30, and a pin driver 32 are provided for each of a plurality of I/O terminals 22 corresponding respectively to a plurality of pins furnished on an LSI. A relay 44 and a loop control circuit 46 are provided to feed an output signal of the pin driver 32 back to an input side of the waveform and timing generation circuit 28. A skew board 100 is used to adjust the skew circuit 30, whereby the initial timing calibration is carried out. With the skew circuit 30 thus adjusted, oscillations are generated over the feedback path, and the number of resulting pulses is counted (to obtain pulse cycles). When the skew circuit 30 is adjusted so that the pulse count above matches the number of pulses generated during oscillations, a simplified form of timing calibration is implemented.
