Mfqrfid, (multi-frequency rfid, for purposes of this document) utilizes legacy rfid circuitry adding at least a second transmitter (xmit) and receiver (rec) tuned to a second frequency, through a second antenna array allowing a single core modem, power management and processing/memory to share the at least two xmit/rec channels. Thereafter, the two channels, being on different frequencies, may be independently selected by the rfid circuitry based on signal strength of the communicating external device..

Method, apparatus, and system for improving resume times for root ports and root port integrated endpoints


A serial point-to-point link interface to enable communication between a processor and a device, the high speed serial point-to-point link interface including a transmitter to transmit serial data, a receiver to deserialize serial data, and control logic to implement a protocol stack. The protocol stack supports a plurality of power management states, including an active state, a first off state, in which a supply voltage is maintained, and a second off state, in which the supply voltage is not to be provided to the device.
