Arduino V3B-K magstripe reader library

Posted on Monday, February 11th, 2013 in Arduino, code by the machinegeek

matthewg42 has released this library for using V3B-K magstripe readers with Arduinos on Gitub. He describes, “This is more or less a wrapper around Stephan King’s code which has been floating around the nets for a while. I fixed a small problem with a potential buffer overflow if someone jiggles a card around while it is being read, or if a card is swiped too fast.”

For more information and sample code see Matthew’s post at Porpoisehead.net.
