The RFIDuino Shield great way to add RFID functionality to your Arduino microcontroller. Whether you want to learn more about the inner workings of RFID or create a custom RFID system, the RFIDuino can help.
Just drop the RFIDuino Shield onto your Arduino microcontroller, load our sample code, and you'll be reading tags in no time! Our getting started guide will take you through the process of working with the RFIDuino from loading basic code to more advanced projects like triggering physical outputs when cards are read.
Once you're comfortable with programming the RFIDuino, you can modify our code to add new behaviors and functionality to your RFID projects. The RFIDuino has 4 Digital I/O and 4 Analaog Inputs broken out to our 3-pin RobotGeek connectors. You can use these ports to control a wide variety of devices, from relays and solenoids to lights and displays. You can also connect I2C devices through the 4pin grove connector. Additional devices and programming will allow you to create your own custom RFID solutions!
The built in XBee socket makes it a snap to add wireless communication to your RFIDuino. Just drop in a XBee and you can transmit data to any other device that has an XBee. You can use a USB-XBee connection to create a wireless link from your RFIDuino to your computer, or you can send data to other XBee enabled microcontrollers. With the RFIDuino you can create handheld RFId scanners and checkpoints that report back to a central computer.
The RFIDuino is based around the EM4095 chip and will allow you to read any of our EM4102 125KHz RFID tags. You can use our RFIDuino Library to interface with the EM4095 chip or interface directly to it using your own code.
