New White Paper Details Use of Software Development Kit for Custom RFID Apps


19th February 2014

Whitepaper: DevelopCustomRFIDAppsMany users of TSL’s ruggedized 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader are familiar with our sophisticated ASCII 2 protocol that enables a set of simple, pre-configured commands to be executed locally within the reader. ASCII command mode allows developers to call upon text-based commands to execute complex RFID tag functions, such as inventory or read and write.

Well, this same ASCII 2 protocol simplifies development of custom programs for integration with other applications, providing fast and accurate asset tracking with even greater functionality and flexibility. And to assist application developers in creating truly custom apps, TSL offers free RFID software development kits (SDKs) for iOS, Windows Mobile, Android™, and Windows Desktop operating systems.

A powerful set of tools available with the SDK guides developers on how to leverage universal ASCII code to speed integration with the 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader. For example, developers can quickly and easily create apps to “check in/ check out” assets, conduct an “inventory audit” or “find specific items” using the reader paired with any Bluetooth®-enabled mobile device, including enterprise handhelds, consumer phones, touchscreen MP3 players, tablets and PCs.
