Description: This is a basic RFID tag that functions within the MIFARE Classic 1K guidelines. You can use these for all sorts of identification and sensing applications. The tag also has 1K of data storage which can be read and written from a compatible device. Check the related products below.
This tag is transparent and has a diameter of 25mm and an overall thickness of about 0.7mm. It works with MIFARE 13.56 MHz compatible readers.
The MIFARE Classic card is fundamentally just a memory storage device, where the memory is divided into segments and blocks with simple security mechanisms for access control. They are ASIC based and have limited computational power. Thanks to their reliability and low cost, these tags are widely used for electronic wallet, access control, corporate ID cards, transportation or stadium ticketing.
The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks
Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that uses electromagnetic fields to identify objects in a contactless way; itÂ is also called proximity identification.
There are 2 elements in RFID communications: the RFID module (or reader/writer device)Â and an RFID card (or tag). The RFID module acts as the master and the card acts as the slave; this means the module queries theÂ card and sends instructions to it. In a normal RFID communication, the RFID module is fixed and the user takes his card near itÂ when he needs to start the interaction.
This tutorial allows the user to change keys on RFID cards. Also you can read the cards if the key is correct. Each button has a function assigned: enter to change key mode (then you can write your new key with this 4 buttons), save new key and read card.
This project can be developed with Arduino or Intel Galileo. It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.
