FFF - SAMUR - System and Application Modeling and Simulation Framework for UHF RFID
The project aims to develop a simulation and modeling methodology for UHF (Ultra High Frequency) communication links in order to support the development of integrated circuits and decreasing simulation time and further to allow more comprehensive evaluations in advance. A robust modeling methodology for simulation of integration of UHF RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system in the application layer will be developed based on proposed layered simulation and modeling framework. Critical aspects specific for UHF RFID will be solved on various levels of system model abstraction. The major topics are coexistence of high carrier frequency and low rate data signals in the system, modeling methodology for system integration into application layer, and real-time aspects of the HW/SW model co-simulation. Proposed modeling and simulation framework allows creating a hardware-software-application wide model with the stress on high modularity. As a result a simulation tool will be developed that could be used to optimize the setup in the application area to evaluate design of hardware components and system parts of UHF RFID systems.
