Hi,

We here are working with RFID iAnywhere 2.5 demo.

All the EPC tags in the simulator are facilitated with usual
fields of:

1. Filter
2. Company Prefix
3. Item Reference
4. Serial #

However, there is no mentioning of writing into the dummy
RFID using simulator.

Our "Proof of Concept" requires us to perform a simple cycle
of reading from RFID tag and writing back.

Further, please let us know the way in which custom info
related to the item can be written.

I observed that (in SGTIN tags creation during
simulation)the "Item reference" and "Serial #" always tends
to store hexadecimal values which is not compatible to our
requirement of storing of alphanumeric (or atleast numeric)
values.

Your reply would be valueable.......

Deepak:

To understand about encoding data and writing to a tag, you will want to
read the documentation and look at the samples relating to Data Protocol
Processors (DPPs). You will also want to look in the Developer's Guide at
the API for the Multiprotocol Reader Controller for the commands on how to
write to a tag. Unfortunately, there is no Simulator for that
functionality.

As far as the HEX vs Numeric, it is numeric data that is written to the tag,
but it is encoded according to the SGTIN specification. If you are looking
to do some more work with CUSTOM data, this is where DPPs come in since they
give you lots of flexibility as to how you might want to store your data
onto tags.

Hope this helps,

Matt..
