RFIDShield for Arduino Compatible Boards

by ziplock on Fri Jan 30, 2009 7:04 pm

Just as the title states, I finished working on a shield that lets users easily hook an Innovations ID-12 or ID-20 reader into an Arduino-compatible board.

Since I keep seeing people on YouTube using crappy hacked-together RFID readers with Arduino, and I need easy RFID access in my new project, I decided to make a shield that takes an Innovations ID-12 or ID-20 RFID reader and hooks it right into the necessary pins on the Arduino. The shield fully open-source, and under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license. The EAGLE files for the board are at http://www.liquidware.org/view.php?id=94. Also at that link is a description of the circuit.

I'm sending the GERBER files for the board off to a board house next week.

Sweet. Was just visiting to pester you about this. Looking for the same thing- everything out there is pretty bad (or just OK) and done my share of hacking it together. Need to develop something more stable!

Not yet, actually. I'm ordering the board from BatchPCB this weekend. Hopefully it will work :D
