SparkFun RFID Reader Breakout

2 items left

This is a simple breakout board for our RFID readers. The SparkFun RFID Reader Breakout converts the 2mm pins to bread board friendly 0.1\" headers. With this ability the ID-3LA, ID-12LA, and the ID-20LA you can solder the reader directly to the breakout board or use the 2mm sockets.

This breakout board\'s edges actually fit flush within the under side the ID-12LA. The board also works with the ID-20LA, but is smaller than the edges. As stated before each pin of the RFID reader has been broken out including: VCC, READ, D0, D1, FORM, TIR, CP, both ANTs, RES, and GND. We\'ve even added four half-mounting holes to the board to easily secure your project!

**Note:** If you are concerned about soldering this board directly to the RFID reader, you can use [2mm sockets]( instead. This is due to the RFID being sensitive to heat and should be handled with care or if you would like to switch the readers out as you please.
