RFID (radio-frequency identification) is the wireless non-contact use
of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields, for the purposes of
identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. This is the ID-20LA, a
very simple to use RFID reader module from ID Innovations. With a built
in antenna, the only holdup is the 2mm pin spacing (breakout board
available below). Power the module, hold up a 125khz card, and get a
serial string output containing the unique ID of the card.
The new ID-20LA is essentially the same as the older ID-20, but has a lower input voltage.
