So I’m looking at alternative approaches. Most external USB based smart card readers are USB Chip Card Interface Devices (CCID). Has anyone used GHI’s USB raw device to communicate with such a device and is willing to share some code?
I need to read NFC forum type 2 tags. But as far as I understood it it won’t be a big difference whether I read or write a tag as this is just a different APDU command that has to be sent to the card.
I use a Sony RC-S380 reader to write the tags using Windows 8’s proximity API. In addition, I use the same API on Windows Phone 8 to read and write.
I’m in Switzerland. That’s probably not nearby but would be great if you have a working module AND software. My problem is the software part. I already bought a module from dfrobot but that chip (MFRC500) is freaking complicated to use…
@ Justin: Do you have a spare module to sell? This looks interesting… I’m in London from Thursday to Monday. Does that help?
@ Patrick: This also looks nice. Did you document how to connect it to the extender and would you be willing to share your code? I have not much experience (almost no) in soldering and I’m bit worried of wiring it myself. After the MFRC500 experience I realized that the documentation standards in electrical engineering are even worse then in software engineering
