1. General description
The UHF EPCglobal Generation 2 standard allows the commercialized provision of mass
adoption of UHF RFID technology for passive smart tags and labels. Main fields of
applications are supply chain management and logistics for worldwide use with special
consideration of European, US and Chinese frequencies to ensure that operating
distances of several meters can be realized.
The G2X is a dedicated chip for passive, intelligent tags and labels supporting the
EPCglobal Class 1 Generation 2 UHF RFID standard. It is especially suited for
applications where operating distances of several meters and high anti-collision rates are
required.
The G2X is a product out of the NXP Semiconductors UCODE product family. The entire
UCODE product family offers anti-collision and collision arbitration functionality. This
allows a reader to simultaneously operate multiple labels / tags within its antenna field.
A UCODE G2X based label/ tag requires no external power supply.
Its contact-less interface generates the power supply via the antenna circuit by
propagative energy transmission from the interrogator (reader), while the system clock is
generated by an on-chip oscillator. Data transmitted from interrogator to label/tag is
demodulated by the interface, and it also modulates the interrogator’s electromagnetic
field for data transmission from label/tag to interrogator. A label/tag can be operated
without the need for line of sight or battery, as long as it is connected to a dedicated
antenna for the targeted frequency range. When the label/tag is within the interrogator’s
operating range, the high-speed wireless interface allows data transmission in both
directions.
In addition to the EPC specifications the G2X offers an integrated EAS (Electronic Article
Surveillance) feature and read protection of the memory content. On top of the
specification of the G2XL the G2XM offers 512-bit of user memory.

12. Functional description
12.1 Power transfer
The interrogator provides an RF field that powers the tag, equipped with a UCODE G2X.
The antenna transforms the impedance of free space to the chip input impedance in order
to get the maximum possible power for the G2X on the tag.
The RF field, which is oscillating on the operating frequency provided by the interrogator,
is rectified to provide a smoothed DC voltage to the analog and digital modules of the IC.
The antenna that is attached to the chip may use a DC connection between the two
antenna pads. Therefore the G2X also enables loop antenna design. Possible examples
of supported antenna structures can be found in the reference antenna design guide.
12.2 Data transfer
12.2.1 Reader to G2X Link
An interrogator transmits information to the UCODE G2X by modulating an RF signal in
the 840 MHz - 960 MHz frequency range. The G2X receives both information and
operating energy from this RF signal. Tags are passive, meaning that they receive all of
their operating energy from the interrogator's RF waveform.
An interrogator is using a fixed modulation and data rate for the duration of at least an
inventory round. It communicates to the G2X by modulating an RF carrier using
DSB-ASK, SSB-ASK or PR-ASK with PIE encoding.
For further details refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, section 6.3.1.2. Interrogator-to-tag (R=>T)
communications.
12.2.2 G2X to reader Link
An interrogator receives information from the UCODE G2X by transmitting a
continuous-wave RF signal to the tag; the G2X responds by modulating the reflection
coefficient of its antenna, thereby generating modulated sidebands used to backscatter an
information signal to the interrogator. The system is a reader talks first (RTF) system,
meaning that a G2X modulates its antenna reflection coefficient with an information signal
only after being directed by the interrogator.
G2X backscatter is a combination of ASK and PSK modulation depending on the tuning
and bias point. The backscattered data is either modulated with FM0 baseband or Miller
sub carrier.
For further details refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, section 6.3.1.3. tag-to-interrogator (T=>R)
communications.

13. Physical layer and signaling
13.1 Reader to G2X communication
13.1.1 Physical layer
For interrogator-to-G2X link modulation refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, annex H.1 Baseband
waveforms, modulated RF, and detected waveforms.
13.1.2 Modulation
An interrogator sends information to one or more G2X by modulating an RF carrier using
double-sideband amplitude shift keying (DSB-ASK), single-sideband amplitude shift
keying (SSB-ASK) or phase-reversal amplitude shift keying (PR-ASK) using a
pulse-interval encoding (PIE) format. The G2X receives the operating energy from this
same modulated RF carrier.
Section 17, Ref. 1: Annex H, as well as chapter 6.3.1.2.2.
The G2X is capable of demodulating all three modulation types.
13.1.3 Data encoding
The R=>T link is using PIE. For the definition of the therefore relevant reference time
interval for interrogator-to-chip signaling (Tari) refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter
6.3.1.2.3. The Tari is specified as the duration of a data-0.
13.1.4 Data rates
Interrogators shall communicate using Tari values between 6.25 s and 25 s, inclusive.
For interrogator compliance evaluation the preferred Tari values of 6.25 s, 12.5 s or
25 s should be used. For further details refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.2.4.
13.1.5 RF envelope for R=>T
A specification of the relevant RF envelope parameters can be found in Section 17,
Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.2.5.
13.1.6 Interrogator power-up/down waveform
For a specification of the interrogator power-up and power-down RF envelope and
waveform parameters refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapters 6.3.1.2.6 and 6.3.1.2.7.
13.1.7 Preamble and frame-sync
An interrogator shall begin all R=>T signaling with either a preamble or a frame-sync. A
preamble shall precede a Query command and denotes the start of an inventory round.
For a definition and explanation of the relevant R=>T preamble and frame-sync refer to
Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.2.8.

13.2 G2X to reader communication
An interrogator receives information from a G2X by transmitting an unmodulated RF
carrier and listening for a backscattered reply. The G2X backscatters by switching the
reflection coefficient of its antenna between two states in accordance with the data being
sent. For further details refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.
13.2.1 Modulation
The UCODE G2X communicates information by backscatter-modulating the amplitude
and/or phase of the RF carrier. Interrogators shall be capable of demodulating either
demodulation type.
13.2.2 Data encoding
The encoding format, selected in response to interrogator commands, is either FM0
baseband or Miller-modulated subaltern. The interrogator commands the encoding choice
13.2.2.1
FM0 baseband
FM0 inverts the baseband phase at every symbol boundary; a data-0 has an additional
mid-symbol phase inversion. For details on FM0 and generator state diagram, FM0
symbols and sequences and how FM0 transmissions should be terminated refer to
Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.
13.2.2.2
FM0 Preamble
T=>R FM0 signaling begin with one of two defined preambles, depending on the value of
the TRext bit specified in the Query command that initiated the inventory round. For
further details refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.
13.2.2.3
Miller-modulated sub carrier
Baseband Miller inverts its phase between two data-0s in sequence. Baseband Miller also
places a phase inversion in the middle of a data-1 symbol. For details on Miller-modulated
sub carrier, generator state diagram, sub carrier sequences and terminating sub carrier
transmissions refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.
13.2.2.4
Miller sub carrier preamble
T=>R sub carrier signaling begins with one of the two defined preambles. The choice
depends on the value of the TRext bit specified in the Query command that initiated the
inventory round. For further details refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.
13.2.3 Data rates
The G2X IC supports tag to interrogator data rates and link frequencies as specified in
Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.

13.3 Link timing
For the interrogator interacting with a UCODE G2X equipped tag population exact link and
response timing requirements must be fulfilled, which can be found in Section 17, Ref. 1,
chapter 6.3.1.6.
13.3.1 Regeneration time
The regeneration time is the time required if a G2X is to demodulate the interrogator
signal, measured from the last falling edge of the last bit of the G2X response to the first
falling edge of the interrogator transmission. This time is referred to as T2 and can vary
between 3.0 Tpri and 20 Tpri. For a more detailed description refer to Section 17, Ref. 1,
chapter 6.3.1.6.
13.3.2 Start-up time
For a detailed description refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.1.3.4.
13.3.3 Persistence time
An interrogator chooses one of four sessions and inventories tags within that session
(denoted S0, S1, S2, and S3). The interrogator and associated UCODE G2X population
operate in one and only one session for the duration of an inventory round (defined
above). For each session, a corresponding inventoried flag is maintained. Sessions allow
tags to keep track of their inventoried status separately for each of four possible
time-interleaved inventory processes, using an independent inventoried flag for each
process. Two or more interrogators can use sessions to independently inventory a
common UCODE G2X chip population.
A session flag indicates whether a G2X may respond to an interrogator. G2X chips
maintain a separate inventoried flag for each of four sessions; each flag has symmetric A
and B values. Within any given session, interrogators typically inventory tags from A to B
followed by a re-inventory of tags from B back to A (or vice versa).
Additionally, the G2X has implemented a selected flag, SL, which an interrogator may
assert or deassert using a Select command.
For a description of Inventoried flags S0 – S3 refer to Section 17, Ref. 1 chapter 6.3.2.2
and for a description of the Selected flag refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.2.3. For
tag flags and respective persistence time refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, table 6.14.
13.4 Bit and byte ordering
The transmission order for all R=>T and T=>R communications respects the following
conventions:
• within each message, the most-significant word is transmitted first, and
• within each word, the most-significant bit (MSB) is transmitted first,
whereas one word is composed of 16 bits.
To represent memory addresses and mask lengths EBV-8 values are used. An extensible
bit vector (EBV) is a data structure with an extensible data range. For a more detailed
explanation refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, Annex A.

13.5 Data integrity
The G2X ignores invalid commands. In general, "invalid" means a command that (1) is
incorrect given the current the G2X state, (2) is unsupported by the G2X, (3) has incorrect
parameters, (4) has a CRC error, (5) specifies an incorrect session, or (6) is in any other
way not recognized or not executable by the G2X. The actual definition of "invalid" is
state-specific and defined, for each G2X state, in n Section 17, Ref. 1 Annex B and
Annex C.
All UCODE G2X backscatter error codes are summarized in Section 17, Ref. 1 Error
codes, Annex I. For a detailed description of the individual backscatter error situations
which are command specific please refer to the Section 17, Ref. 1 individual command
description section 6.3.2.10.
13.6 CRC
A CRC-16 is a cyclic-redundancy check that an interrogator uses when protecting certain
R=>T commands, and the G2X uses when protecting certain backscattered T=>R
sequences. To generate a CRC-16 an interrogator or the G2X first generates the CRC-16
precursor shown in Section 17, Ref. 1 Table 6.11, then take the ones-complement of the
generated precursor to form the CRC-16. For a detailed description of the CRC-16
generation and handling rules refer to Section 17, Ref. 1, chapter 6.3.2.1.
The CRC-5 is only used to protect the Query command (out of the mandatory command
set). It is calculated out of X5 + X3 + 1. For a more detailed CRC-5 description refer to
Section 17, Ref. 1, table 6.12.
For exemplary schematic diagrams for CRC-5 and CRC-16 encoder/decoder refer to
Section 17, Ref. 1, Annex F.
For a CRC calculation example refer to Section 15.1, Table 27 and Table 28.

14. TAG selection, inventory and access
This section contains all information including commands by which a reader selects,
inventories, and accesses a G2X population
An interrogator manages UCODE G2X equipped tag populations using three basic
operations. Each of these operations comprises one or more commands. The operations
are defined as follows
139037
Product data sheet
COMPANY PUBLIC
Select:
The process by which an interrogator selects a tag population for inventory
and access. Interrogators may use one or more Select commands to select a
particular tag population prior to inventory.
Inventory:
The process by which an interrogator identifies UCODE G2X equipped tags.
An interrogator begins an inventory round by transmitting a Query command
in one of four sessions. One or more G2X may reply. The interrogator detects
a single G2X reply and requests the PC, EPC, and CRC-16 from the chip. An
inventory round operates in one and only one session at a time. For an
example of an interrogator inventorying and accessing a single G2X refer to
Section 17, Ref. 1, Annex E.
Access:
The process by which an interrogator transacts with (reads from or writes to)
individual G2X. An individual G2X must be uniquely identified prior to access.
Access comprises multiple commands, some of which employ one-time-pad
based cover-coding of the R=>T link.

14.1.1.1
User memory (only G2XM)
The User Memory bank contains a sequential block of 512 bits (32 words of 16 bit)
ranging from address 00h to 1Fh. The user memory can be accessed via Select, Read or
Write command and it may be write locked, permanently write locked, unlocked or
permanently unlocked.
In addition reading of not only of the User Memory but of the whole memory including EPC
and TID can be protected by using the custom ReadProtect command.
14.1.1.2
Special behavior of user memory address 1Fh
WRITE or SELECT of user memory address 1Fh will falsely set an error flag. This will
affect the subsequent READ or SELECT.
The following commands will falsely set an internal error flag (without actually
causing an error):
1) WRITE to user memory with WordPtr=1Fh
2) SELECT to user memory with compare mask ending at bitaddress 1FFh
(e.g. Pointer=1FEh, length=1 or Pointer=1FDh, length=2 …)
Note: The error flag is set independent of the chip state (also chips in the e.g. Ready
state are affected).
The falsely set error flag will affect the following sub sequential commands:
A) READ command with WordCount=0 falsely responds with "memory overrun" error
B) SELECT command with Length<>0  falsely assumes non existing memory location
The behavior can be avoided with:
• Turning off the RF carrier to reset the chip (This is what readers typically do!).
• Using the READ command with WordCount<>0.
• Sending other command prior to READ or SELECT (e.g. WRITE to address<>1Fh,
ReqRN) or executing READ or SELECT two times.
Remark: The WRITE operation itself is not affected by this problem i.e. data is written
properly! With commercially available readers this behavior is typically not observed.
14.1.1.3
Supported EPC types
The EPC types are defined in the EPC Tag Standards document from EPCglobal.
These standards define completely that portion of EPC tag data that is standardized,
including how that data is encoded on the EPC tag itself (i.e. the EPC Tag Encodings), as
well as how it is encoded for use in the information systems layers of the EPC Systems
Network (i.e. the EPC URI or Uniform Resource Identifier Encodings).
The EPC Tag Encodings include a Header field followed by one or more Value Fields. The
Header field indicates the length of the Values Fields and contains a numbering system
identifier (NSI). The Value Fields contain a unique EPC Identifier and optional Filter Value
when the latter is judged to be important to encode on the tag itself.

14.12 Custom Commands
14.12.1 ReadProtect
The G2X ReadProtect custom command enables reliable read protection of the entire
G2X memory. Executing ReadProtect from the Secured state will set the ReadProtect-bit
to '1'. With the ReadProtect-Bit set the G2X will continue to work unaffected but fail its
content.
Following commands will be disabled: Read, Write, Kill, Lock, Access, ReadProtect,
ChangeEAS, EAS Alarm and Calibrate. The G2X will only react upon an anticollision with
Select, Query, QueryRep, QueryAdjust, ACK (no truncated reply), NAK, ReqRN but reply
with zeros as EPC and CRC-16 content (except PC/password). ACK will return zeros
except for the PC.
The read protection can be removed by executing Reset ReadProtect. The
ReadProtect-Bit will than be cleared.
Devices whose access password is zero will ignore the command. A frame-sync must be
prepended the command.
After sending the ReadProtect command an interrogator shall transmit CW for the lesser
of TReply or 20 ms, where TReply is the time between the interrogator's ReadProtect
command and the backscattered reply. An interrogator may observe three possible
responses after sending a ReadProtect, depending on the success or failure of the
operation:
• ReadProtect succeeds: After completing the ReadProtect the G2X shall backscatter
the reply shown in Table 14 comprising a header (a 0-bit), the tag's handle, and a
CRC-16 calculated over the 0-bit and handle. Immediately after this reply the G2X will

ms then the ReadProtect completed successfully.
• The G2X encounters an error: The G2X will backscatter an error code during the CW
period rather than the reply shown in the EPCglobal Spec (see Annex I for error-code
definitions and for the reply format).
• ReadProtect does not succeed: If the interrogator does not observe a reply within
20 ms then the ReadProtect did not complete successfully. The interrogator may
issue a Req_RN command (containing the handle) to verify that the G2X is still in the
interrogation zone, and may re-initiate the ReadProtect command.
The G2X reply to the ReadProtect command will use the extended preamble shown in
EPCglobal Spec (Figure 6.11 or Figure 6.15), as appropriate (i.e. a Tag shall reply as if
TRext=1) regardless of the TRext value in the Query that initiated the round.

14.12.2 Reset ReadProtect
Reset ReadProtect allows an interrogator to resets the ReadProtect-bit and re-enables
reading of the G2X memory content according the EPCglobal specification.
The G2X will execute Reset ReadProtect from the Open or Secured states.
If a G2X in the Open or Secured states receives a Reset ReadProtect with a valid CRC-16
and a valid handle but an incorrect access password, it will not reply and transit to the
Arbitrate state.
If a G2X in the Open or Secured states receives a Reset ReadProtect with a valid CRC-16
and a valid handle but the ReadProtect-Bit is not set ('0'), it will not change the
ReadProtect-Bit but backscatter the reply shown in Table 17.
If a G2X in the Open or Secured receives a Reset ReadProtect with a valid CRC-16 but
an invalid handle, or it receives a Reset ReadProtect before which the immediately
preceding command was not a Req_RN, it will ignore the Reset ReadProtect and remain
in its current state.
A frame-sync must be prepended the Reset ReadProtect command.
After sending a Reset ReadProtect an interrogator shall transmit CW for the lesser of
TReply or 20 ms, where TReply is the time between the interrogator's Reset ReadProtect
command and the G2X backscattered reply. An interrogator may observe three possible
responses after sending a Reset ReadProtect, depending on the success or failure of the
operation:
• Write succeeds: After completing the Reset ReadProtect a G2X will backscatter the
reply shown in Table 17 comprising a header (a 0-bit), the handle, and a CRC-16
calculated over the 0-bit and handle. If the interrogator observes this reply within
20 ms then the Reset ReadProtect completed successfully.
• The G2X encounters an error: The G2X will backscatter an error code during the CW
period rather than the reply shown in Table 17 (see EPCglobal Spec for error-code
definitions and for the reply format).
• Write does not succeed: If the interrogator does not observe a reply within 20 ms then
the Reset ReadProtect did not complete successfully. The interrogator may issue a
Req_RN command (containing the handle) to verify that the G2X is still in the
interrogation zone, and may reissue the Reset ReadProtect command.
The G2X reply to the Reset ReadProtect command will use the extended preamble shown
in EPCglobal Spec (Figure 6.11 or Figure 6.15), as appropriate (i.e. a G2X will reply as if
TRext=1 regardless of the TRext value in the Query that initiated the round.

14.12.3 ChangeEAS
A G2X equipped RFID tag can be enhanced by a stand-alone operating EAS alarm
feature. With an EAS-Alarm bit set to '1' the tag will reply to an EAS_Alarm command by
backscattering a 64 bit alarm code without the need of a Select or Query. The EAS is a
built-in solution so no connection to a backend database is required. As it is a custom
command no Select or Query is required to detect the EAS state enabling fast, reliable
and offline article surveillance.
ChangeEAS can be executed from the Secured state only. The command will be ignored
if the Access Password is zero, the command will also be ignored with an invalid CRC-16
or an invalid handle, the G2X will than remain in the current state. The CRC-16 is
calculated from the first command-code bit to the last handle bit. A frame-sync must be
prepended the command.
The G2X reply to a successful ChangeEAS will use the extended preamble, as
appropriate (i.e. a Tag shall reply as if TRext=1) regardless of the TRext value in the
Query that initiated the round.
After sending a ChangeEAS an interrogator shall transmit CW for less than TReply or
20 ms, where TReply is the time between the interrogator's ChangeEAS command and
the G2X backscattered reply. An interrogator may observe three possible responses after
sending a ChangeEAS, depending on the success or failure of the operation
• Write succeeds: After completing the ChangeEAS a G2X will backscatter the reply
shown in Table 20 comprising a header (a 0-bit), the handle, and a CRC-16 calculated
over the 0-bit and handle. If the interrogator observes this reply within
20 ms then the ChangeEAS completed successfully.
• The G2X encounters an error: The G2X will backscatter an error code during the CW
period rather than the reply shown in Table 20 (see EPCglobal Spec for error-code
definitions and for the reply format).
• Write does not succeed: If the interrogator does not observe a reply within 20 ms then
the ChangeEAS did not complete successfully. The interrogator may issue a Req_RN
command (containing the handle) to verify that the G2X is still in the interrogator's
field, and may reissue the ChangeEAS command.
Upon receiving a valid ChangeEAS command a G2X will perform the commanded
set/reset operation of the EAS_Alarm-Bit.
If EAS-Bit is set, the EAS_Alarm command will be available after the next power up and
reply the 64 bit EAS code upon execution. Otherwise the EAS_Alarm command will be
ignored.

14.12.4 EAS_Alarm
EAS_Alarm is a custom command causing the G2X to immediately backscatter an
EAS-Alarmcode, when EAS ALARM bit is set without any delay caused by Select, Query
and without the need for a backend database.
The EAS feature of the G2X is available after enabling it by sending a ChangeEAS
command described in Section 14.12.3 “ChangeEAS”. With an EAS-Alarm bit set to '1' the
G2X will reply to an EAS_Alarm command by backscattering a fixed 64 bit alarm code. A
G2X will reply to an EAS_Alarm command from the ready state only.
If the EAS-Alarm bit is reset ('0') by sending a ChangeEAS command in the password
protected Secure state the G2X will not reply to an EAS_Alarm command.
The EAS_Alarm command is structured as following:
• 16 bit command
• 16 bit inverted command
• DR (TRcal divide ratio) sets the T=>R link frequency as described in EPCglobal Spec.
6.3.1.2.8 and Table 6.9.
• M (cycles per symbol) sets the T=>R data rate and modulation format as shown in
EPCglobal Spec. Table 6.10.
• TRext chooses whether the T=>R preamble is prepended with a pilot tone as
described in EPCglobal Spec. 6.3.1.3.
A preamble must be prepended the EAS_Alarm command according EPCglobal Spec,
6.3.1.2.8.
Upon receiving an EAS_Alarm command the tag loads the CRC5 register with 01001b
and backscatters the 64 bit alarm code accordingly. The reader is now able to calculate
the CRC5 over the backscattered 64 bits received to verify the received code.

14.12.5 Calibrate
After execution of the custom Calibrate command the G2X will continuously backscatter
the user memory content in an infinite loop. The G2XL will continuously backscatter zeros.
This command can be used for frequency spectrum measurements. Calibrate can only be
executed from the Secure state with an non-zero Access Password set otherwise the
command will be ignored.
The Calibrate command includes a CRC-16 calculated over the whole command, the
handle and a prepended frame-sync.
