The RFID HF | NFC Embedded Module – M890 is a high-performance RFID module. Thanks to its small size and the component arrangement that can be installed on one side, it enables embedding in various applications and devices.

RFID HF | NFC Embedded Module – M890 is equipped with state-of-the-art microcontroller and the latest HF transceiver technology, the Reader series enables the user to read and write almost all 13.56 MHz transponders. There are five different configurations available which support the common RFID standards such as ISO 14443A/B (T=CL), ISO 14443-4, ISO 15693, ISO 18092 / ECMA-340 (NFC), and ISO 18000-3.

The RFID HF | NFC Embedded Module – M890 has an external antenna connection. iDTRONIC Professional RFID offers a wide range of antennas for every purpose. Read ranges of up to 8 cm (depending on transponder type).

RFID HF | NFC Embedded Module – M890 is available with TTL, USB VCP, USB HID, RS232/485 and PC/SC interface.
In low-power mode, the M890 consumes less than 1 mA.

The hardware of iDTRONIC contains a useful SDK for the development of controller-, Linux- or Windows-based applications. In addition to documentation, command protocols and source codes, the SDK includes a Windows-based demo application with full functionality on all supported HF-RFID standards.
