Seriz II Board

Built upon the success of Seriz, ArchiTech and NXP present the Seriz II Board, a rapid and secure RFID and NFC development.

The development of RFID and NFC applications is being challenged due to the many different kinds of RFID tags on the market. Furthermore, some cards are becoming very complex as there is a growing need for security.

ArchiTech Seriz and ArchiTech Seriz II help customers migrate their existing RFID product to a more secure solution, add the benefits of NFC to their reader with almost no additional costs, thus making their development cycles faster and easier.

Elatec TWN4 MultiTech Nano

The Elatec TWN4 MultiTech Nano is a super small (31 x 17.8 x 2.5mm / 1.22 x 0.7 x 0.12inch) RFID/NFC module for machines with limited space such as handheld readers, tablets, displays, terminals and EMVCo POS systems. It supports simultaneously more than 60 transponder technologies (i.e. MIFARE Classic, MIFARE DESFire EV1, NTag 2xx, NFC Tag Forum Type 1-5 etc.) from low frequency (125kHz & 134.2kHz) and high frequency (13.56MHz) as well as technologies compliant to ISO14443A/B, ISO15693, ISO18092 / ECMA-340. The TWN4 MultiTech Nano has to be connected to an external antenna through a printed circuit board

TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE

RFID, NFC, Bluetooth – all-in-one proximity reader

The family’s flagship product, the TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE, is optimised for over 60 RFID technologies in the 125 kHz, 134.2 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequency ranges and also integrates NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). The broad technology supported optionally enables end users to identify themselves using only their mobile phones at the reader. Android phones, iPhones, Windows-based smartphones, tablets and similar mobile devices are also supported. Furthermore it can be obtained as a desktop device or PCB.

Effortless configuration

The work needed to configure multiple TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE readers for large projects can be reduced significantly by storing the required reader configuration on contactless RFID cards. Each reader is configured simply by reading these cards.

TWN4 CONFIG Programmer

Wireless configuration of RFID readers saves time and configuration effort

The TWN4 CONFIG Programmer RFID writing device comes equipped with software user interface in which settings are made for the TWN4 reader used in the project at hand. The desired setup is encoded onto the contactless RFID cards (TWN4 Configuration Cards) which are included with delivery and the reader adopts these settings when a configuration card is swiped over it.

The TWN4 readers inherently support over 60 RFID technologies in the 125 kHz, 134.2 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequency ranges. The TWN4 Configuration Card configures a device to read only certain technologies or frequencies. Its greatest advantage is that it can also be used to (re)program large numbers of proximity readers via air interface without requiring disassembly of the device or connecting it to a computer. This significantly reduces the configuration effort required for large-scale projects.

Traceability and security

Detailed information about the setup on the configuration card and the project associated with it can be accessed only by the person, who defined the original configuration. In order to guarantee security against wireless configuration each TWN4 reader can be password protected.
