Barcode scanners are essential in everyday activities including grocery scanning, identifying hospital patients, and tracking boxes or products in a production line or warehouse. In all cases, they must prove to be fast, accurate, and durable in various environments.
Barcode scanners use laser, bioptic, or image scanning technology to scan 1D or 2D barcodes. Depending on the application, they are designed to be handheld, in-counter, on-counter or hands-free. For connectivity, barcode scanners connect via serial interfaces such as RS-232, USB or wirelessly using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Barcode scanners require high-performance MCUs which provide design flexibility at a low cost and can process data quickly and securely.
With a combination of our wide variety of products including Arm Cortex processors, power management ICs, capacitive touch devices, NFC contactless reader devices, audio codec devices, load switches, RTC’s, smart amplifiers, battery authentication devices, smart amplifiers, and others, designing a barcode scanner that is fast, accurate, and durable is simple and cost-effective.
