Texas Instruments RFid Systems¡¦ S4100 Multi-Function Reader (MFR) Evaluation Kit takes RFID integration to a new level. The kit enables users to experience the MFR and its functions in a PC-based environment. The Base Application allows users to execute standard read/write/lock commands, as well as experiment with anti-collision and multiple-technology environments. With standard RS-232 and RS-485 serial I/O ports, the S4100 MFR is a plug-and-play solution, ideal for logical access applications, as well as financial, ticketing, access control, and others.
With support for 134.2 KHz and 13.56 MHz contactless technologies, the MFR makes migration from Low-Frequency to High-Frequency technologies painless and transparent. Modular firmware architecture combined with serial firmware programmability provides for system scalability, meaning that the reader can be programmed to operate as a stand alone unit, or as part of a host controlled, multi-point system.
