RFID Trainer
Model: RFID-1356 

1. Introduction

RFID-1356 Trainer is an high performance learning and training system for
understanding basics, working and application of RFID (Radio Frequency 
Identification) in the school or laboratories.
It comprises of Contactless RFID Reader, 5 Contactless RFID Cards, Host program, 
Firmware source and Texbook for lectures.
Using this trainer, a professor can teach students the RFID technologies 
including Anti-collision algorithm.

2. Feature

Contactless RFID Reader operating at 13.56 MHz over 10cm range.
Supports for ISO15693 passive Transponders(Tags).
Supports for ISO15693 Mandatory and Optional comannds.
Supports for Anti-collision operations.(detects multiple Tags simultaneously)

Provided with Textbook for lessons.
Provided with Host GUI Program for protocol training.
Provided with Firmware Source for embedded programming training.

On board wound coil antenna with guard cover. It helps antenna design training.
USB port used for serial communication with PC.(9-pin serial port is not required)
ATMEL ATmega128 RISC type Microcontroller.
JTAG interface for embedded program downloading and debugging.
On board LCD display for observation of system operations.
On board Buzzer for indication of system status.
5 Test points for observation of RF and baseband signals.

3. Advantages

Over 5 Tags can be simultanelosly detected depending on Tag size,
which has the same performance as the commercial system.

Variety of contents including basic theory, operation experiments, protocols 
such as anticollision, application programming, etc. in textbook.

Easy learning of RFID commands and protocol through Host GUI program.

Learning and excuting the RFID application program by example projects such as
Gate Control System, Public Transport Card System.

Efficient learning of RFID hardware operations through testpoints.
