Complete reader with USB interface based on the RFID-B1 module. Jumper selection between the integrated PCB antenna or our external RFID-ANT1356 antennas, plus bridge circuitry to provide USB interface and power from the USB input. The reader is designed both as an ideal low/medium volume production complete reader solution and as an evaluation/development board for the RFID-B1 embedded module. Pushbuttons, LEDs, buzzer, expansion connectors are all on board for application development and product evalation. Supports MIFARE Classic® 1K, MIFARE Classic® 4K, MIFARE Ultralight®, NTAG2xx® transponders.
USB-B1 is designed with both embedded applications and computing / PLC platforms in mind.This product is an ideal design choice if the user wishes to add RFID capability to their design quickly and without requiring extensive RFID and embedded software expertise and time. An on board low power ARM microcontroller handles the RFID configuration setup and provides the user with a powerful yet simple command interface to facilitate fast and easy read/write access to the memory and features of the various transponders supported by this module.
The device provides communication and power via USB connector. It is a micro USB type B connector. The USB port, connected to the FTDI FT234XD chip, provides USB to COM Port functionality. The user can configure the COM Port with a baud rate up to the maximum allowed by the RFID B1 module.
The user has the option to work with an external RFID antenna connected to the USB-B1 device. Connector J10 is where to plug in an external antenna. Eccel Technology Ltd provides a variety of RFID antennas which the user can use together with this device.
