Wakeup Receiver has low-frequency, low-power design.

Press Release Summary:

Designed to promote battery life in active tags, AS3932 fully programmable 3D wake-up receiver covers carrier frequency range of 110-150 kHz, including 125 kHz band, and offers wakeup sensitivity of 100 µVRMS (typ). Its 3 independent receiving channels enable detection of wakeup signal from any direction, and received data can be correlated with pattern programmed in register to prevent false wakeups. Wakeup without pattern detection is also supported.

austriamicrosystems Introduces Next Generation 125 kHz LF Wakeup Receiver with Ultra Low Power Consumption

AS3932 is a fully programmable 3D wake-up receiver for longest battery life in active tags

Unterpremstaetten, Austria (February 5, 2009) - austriamicrosystems (SWX: AMS), a leading global designer and manufacturer of analog ICs for communications, industrial, medical and automotive applications, expanded its RF product portfolio with the AS3932, a 3-channel low power low frequency wakeup receiver which offers highest sensitivity at lowest current consumption for industry's best range. The AS3932 supports the widely used 125 kHz band and, through the optimization of power consumption, sensitivity and programmability, enables a variety of applications.

austriamicrosystems' AS3932 wakeup receiver has three independent receiving channels enabling detection of a wakeup signal from any direction The received data can be correlated with a pattern that is programmed in the register preventing false wakeups. Primary target applications are active RFID, high-value asset tracking, real-time location systems, operator identification and access control or keyless entry.

"By using the AS3932 wakeup receiver customers can have both best range and lowest power" says Kambiz Hayat-Dawoodi, General Manager of the Standard Linear and Wireless Business at austriamicrosystems. "The performance of the AS3932 has impressed many customers that have been using any of the currently available wake-up receivers".

Based on its concept of flexible data stream management, the AS3932 offers an attractive easy-to-use solution for RF designers which require secure component sourcing without uncertainty about a supplier's long term product availability.

The AS3932 is available in a TSSOP16 or a QFN (4x4) 16LD package and is suitable for operating environments ranging from -40 to +85°C.
