The Radio Frequency Identification Development Kit includes a simple read-only and read/write transponder to demonstrate multiple contactless communication possibilities, along with a full version C compiler with IDE and an In-Circuit Programmer and Debugger. It comes with a power supply and cables. A manual with source code examples explains how to use the drivers, enabling you to develop your own RFID applications quickly. The short-range antenna is a PCB trace -- not external.
This system uses RS485 communication to relay information from a transponder reader to the data storage system. An RS485-to-RS232 converter is included so that you can connect the RFID Prototype board to a PC via serial port. Note: You will have to program the PIC on the RS485-to-RS232 board to convert the signals as you see fit.
