2001 Electronic Components is now offering the new MIFARE and NFC reader/writer module, the SkyeModule™ Gemini, from Skyetek. This product marks the next generation of High Frequency (HF) reader modules, a versatile 13.56MHz HF RFID with a cutting edge ARM Cortex microcontroller and latest HF transceiver technology coupled with the reader’s intelligent operating system.
The Gemini is a low-cost and ultra low-power module, robust in consumable authentication, making it ideal for medical, ticketing, security or safety applications. Because of the low power features such as software stand-by mode and with only 10µA current in deep sleep mode, the Gemini is also well suited for battery powered and other power sensitive applications.
This module can fit into almost any new or existing design based on its small footprint (40mm x 38mm). The Gemini is compatible with any of the Common Blade devices being able to connect to the same interface board. Also included is a micro USB port for direct connection to a USB host as well as an antenna output for an external antenna. Quality of the Gemini is of utmost importance, as it is manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 13485.
The SkyeModule™ Gemini is available to order now from 2001 Electronic Components. Skyetek delivers stand-alone and embedded reader solutions that make RFID work easily, reliably, and economically, offering a complete line of both High Frequency (13.56MHz) and Ultra High Frequency (860-960MHz) readers that can be used in a multitude of distinct applications.
