AirGATE Receives FCC Certification for SAW Readers

February 8, 2007

The agency's ruling makes these products available in the U.S., providing engineers with readers that work well around metal and liquid and are very accurate temperature sensors that require no battery.

DALLAS /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- X-Change Corp. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, AirGATE Technologies, Inc., has received FCC certification for its surface acoustic wave (SAW) readers produced by Carinthian Tech Research (CTR).

AirGATE maintains an exclusive, national distribution agreement with Carinthian Tech Research, a leading Austria-based developer of SAW devices and technology, used to identify and track tagged items in applications in which traditional RFID systems are not adequate. Based in Technologiepark Villach, St. Magdalen Austria, CTR AG is currently setting new standards in rugged RFID technology and remote access temperature sensors, focusing in particular on surface acoustic wave technology.

AirGATE has delivered development systems to Fortune 1000 companies, 3M, NASA-Johnson Space Center, the U.S. Navy, and other key companies. SAW technology works very well around metal and liquid, which are usually challenging for semiconductor-based RFID tags and systems, and is a very accurate temperature sensor that requires no battery.

"AirGATE engineers worked closely with CTR and the FCC lab to facilitate certification," stated Matt Ulrich, National Sales Director, SAW Systems. "We continue to work with CTR in bringing new SAW products and enhancements to market to maintain our position as a leading supplier of SAW RFID and sensor systems," continued Ulrich.
