SAMSYS INTRODUCES MULTI-PROTOCOL UHF OEM READER MODULE.SAMSys Technologies Inc. (SMY SMY Solar Maximum Year :TSX TSX Toronto Stock Exchange (TSE before April, 2002)
TSX Transfer from Stack Pointer to Index

The term initially referred to the company that made the products (the "original" manufacturer), but eventually became widely used to refer to the organization that buys the products and Reader Module or MP9310. This single port reader is specifically designed for manufacturers of thermal transfer barcode printers, laser printers and printer applicator ap·pli·ca·tor

Based on SAMSys' popular multi-protocol and multi-regional design, this board reader is designed to be incorporated into products requiring the ability to encode and read all of the most prevalent protocols in UHF tag design that exist today, including EPC (1) (Entertainment PC) See HTPC.
(2) (Electronic Product Code) A standard code for RFID tags administered by EPCglobal Inc. (www.epcglobalinc.org). Class 0/0+, EPC Class 1, ISO (1) See ISO speed.
(2) (International Organization for Standardization, Geneva, Switzerland, www.iso.ch) An organization that sets international standards, founded in 1946. The U.S. member body is ANSI. 18000-6A and -6B, Philips UCODE UCODE Universal Computer Code (Groundwater Modeling Systems) & EPC 1.19, Intermec Intellitag, EM 4022, 4222 and 4223, Atmel and others. It will support tags tuned at FCC (1) (Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC, www.fcc.gov) The U.S. government agency that regulates interstate and international communications including wire, cable, radio, TV and satellite. The FCC was created under the U.S. , European, and proposed Japanese UHF frequency bands.
"The completion of this reader board design represents a major milestone in both the Technology and Product Development activities of our company, and I would like to commend our Engineering team for this accomplishment. This Module provides a level of versatility and migration capability unlike any of our previous products, and indeed unlocks the potential for comprehensive current and future multi-protocol support", said Cliff Horwitz, SAMSys chairman and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. . "This product has been developed to meet the significant demand we have already witnessed for the functionality it provides. It will also form the basis of future Fixed Reader development, as the architecture will enable us to not only dramatically improve the physical dimensions of our reader products, but also to address the ultimate challenges of infrastructural costs, which we believe will be the final hurdle to pervasive implementation of RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) A data collection technology that uses electronic tags for storing data. The tag, also known as an "electronic label," "transponder" or "code plate," is made up of an RFID chip attached to an antenna. technology. We expect this Reader Module to pave the way for our entry into the very significant OEM Products market, and for it to represent a new and sizeable contribution to our revenue mix."
The new MP9310 board reader has already received significant interest from printer manufacturers. SAMSys has received orders for its prototype unit from over 15 different companies for engineering purposes. The benefit of this new design is its ability to work with the many tag protocols described above, and to be able to encode, read, and perform parametric tests on tags to ensure that newly programmed tags will be fully functional in the intended application. This functionality enables label printers and applicators to do a more thorough job when encoding and testing tags, something that is particularly important today with the demand for high yield and high quality UHF tags. The highly programmable design will enable it to support most new tag/chip designs, including the new specification for Generation 2 which is currently being finalized.
The new MP9310 board reader is in production. For more information on this product, visit http://www.samsys.com for a downloadable specification under our products section. SAMSys is the originator of the agile multi-frequency, multi-protocol and multi-regional UHF reader architecture, which is fast becoming accepted as the standard for supply chain solutions. The company operates out of offices in Ontario, Canada; North Carolina, USA; the United Kingdom and Shanghai, China.
