OpenBeacon – An open source active RFID project

Posted on Thursday, October 18th, 2012 in open source, RF, RFID by DP

OpenBeacon is a comprehensive open source platform for active RFID applications operating in the license free 2.4GHz ISM band. The project involves base station hardware, as well as active tag hardware.

OpenBeacon is based on Open Source software and a very flexible and reprogrammable lowcost Open Source RFmodule. The firmware sources and hardware schematics are available under GPL license. We encourage the development of new ideas for OpenBeacon setups and firmware improvements.
