RFID Reader

This software supports the TI S6350 module for use as a RFID reader. The Core Speedway lap counter uses this module.

Standard 13.56MHz ISO15693 tags should work.

Documentation on the TI S6350 module along with a Windows example program can be downloaded from TI's site here:

 TI S6350 site

ISO 15693 Protocol

For communication with the reader we are using the standard ISO15693 protocol instead of the proprietary TI Tag-IT protocol. Documentation about this protocol can be downloaded from here:

 ISO15693 serial protocol

The full standard including electrical and physical characteristics can be downloaded from here:

 ISO15693 complete protocol


The following tag can be used with the TI S6350 module:

 TI HF large rectangle transponder

It can be purchased from Mousere here:

Other standard tags should work.
