SkyeTek offers the SkyePlus™ MXH and MXU antenna multiplexers to ease integration efforts for those devices requiring multiple read-points.
Both the MXH and MXU can be equipped with 4 or 8 antenna ports depending on the application requirements. Infrastructure costs are reduced by using the multiplexer to minimize the number of readers required to support multiple read-points.
Digital control of the multiplexer is accomplished by either the host processor or reader module allowing any of the 8 antennas to be explicitly addressed using 3 GPIO pins. Additional multiplexers can be added to increase the number of antennas a module can support beyond 8 presenting a scalable solution.
