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.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
