RFID Xplorer used as test equipment for EECC annual report

EECC partnered with CISC European EPC Competence Center (EECC) has partnered with CISC on its latest annual report, titled 'UHF RFID Transponder Benchmark (UTPS)' that helps retailers to determine which RFID tags they should be using, and highlights the costs and specific pain points each platform tackles. RFID Xplorer was used in the testing process as the 'benchmark' test equipment. Xplorer is a test equipment that measures the performance of RAIN devices and application setups, verify conformance and support the development of tags, readers and ICs. It offers features such as extended read and write memory tests and supports testing for crypto suites fully supporting EPCglobal and ISO/IEC test standards.
