What is the latest chip that is in favour at the moment. 13.56mz or ? TI, NXP, ST, etc. (would like something more modern than the M302, RC522, PN432, etc.)

Something that comes with a circuit etc to get up and running quickly, as plug n play. For suitable tags only, not cards. Need read distance of only up to 30mm. direct to laptop open spreadsheet with focus, Win or Linux) low volume traffic. No micro wanted. SPI I2C, or UART. Something with availability of 2 or more antenna. 2 or more readers (20)per laptop etc.

Initially just the basics required to get it up and running.
