Read and write 13.56 MHz RFID cards with OpenPCD:

OpenPCD is a free hardware design for Proximity Coupling Devices (PCD) based on 13,56MHz communication. This device is able to screen informations from Proximity Integrated Circuit Cards (PICC) conforming to vendor-independent standards such as ISO 14443, ISO 15693 as well as proprietary protocols such as Mifare Classic. Contactless cards like these are for example used in the new electronic passports.

    Well that was a fairly unexpected occurrence of my nickname in a blog post. Digging through the archives, Ian? ;)

    I’d still like to see someone like Seeed produce some of these as they are open designs :)
