Full Duplex Technology (FDX): FDX is a design principle whereby the return signal initiates as soon as the beginning of the interrogation signal is received and the smoothing capacitor in the transponder has been charged. The return signal is received repetitively and without interruption for as long as a continuous interrogation signal is maintained. A FDX Transponder doesn’t have to store energy to be able to return its entire data signal.
