Embedded reader module is smallest yet, says HID Global

To allow developers to embed RFID into devices for use in constrained space, HID Global has added the Omnikey 5127CK Reader Core to its Omnikey family.

The reader core uses standard interfaces so that it can be embedding into limited spaces and battery-powered devices.  It enables handheld devices, tablets, PCs and notebooks to keyboards, displays, monitors, and kiosks to be used across a range of applications, says HID Global.

The company also offers a software development kit to support development and integration of the readers. The reader core accelerates time-to-market with streamlined configuration and flexible connectivity.  It includes modular approval certification for wireless devices, efficient power management (USB suspend/resume and remote wake up modes) and external off-board high frequency / low frequency and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) antennae. There is also the option to design custom antennae to meet specific embedded requirements.

The Omnikey 5127CK Reader Core supports multiple low and high frequency credential technologies within a single device and includes Apple’s Enhanced Contactless Polling (ECP) to support credentials in Apple Wallet.  It also supports mobile access via NFC or BLE, as well as iCLASS Seos, iCLASS SE, HID Prox, MIFARE Classic and MIFARE DESFire EV1/EV2 credential technologies.

HID Global makes it possible for people to transact safely, work productively and travel freely. Its trusted identity solutions give people convenient access to physical and digital places and connect things that can be identified, verified and tracked digitally.
