ThingMagic Micro (M6e-M) - 2-Port UHF RFID Module

World-Class UHF RFID Engine

Introduction

This module is designed to meet the demands of high performance RFID handheld, mobile, and stationary readers. The Micro (M6e-Micro) offers two antenna ports and supports the ability to transmit up to +30 dBm for demanding applications. The edge connections for signals, power, and RF allow the module to be soldered directly to a motherboard as a standard component. The on-board connectors allow the module to be mated to a motherboard as an add-on option.

Development Kits

MERCURY Dev KitThe Mercury DevKit for ThingMagic UHF RFID modules contains all the components necessary to begin reading and writing RFID tags and developing RFID-enabled applications. A powerful application programming interface (MercuryAPI) provides code examples, a graphical read-write demo program, and delivers a consistent programmatic interface for development with all ThingMagic fixed and embedded reader products

Development Kits are module specific. Individual DevKits must be purchased for each ThingMagic module type. A single module is included with each DevKit purchase.
