Use of FEZ


#1

Hi,

I am new on Hardware development, I think only as hobbist and search in google find this website.

I am want to do the following, a RFID hardware for control access, update the software via USB, and check the RFID card, I want to use a RFID MiFare and SmartCard.

excuse me, what hardware is better to do it? what version of FEZ.

I am C# programmer.

Best regards,

Malganis

As you can see on the hardware page, there is a USB RFID device which you can buy.

Usable boards are those with USB host connection.
*Domino
*Rhino
*Cobra

If you do not want a USB RFID reader, all FEZ devices will work. You can use a serial connection with a RFID reader available on vendor websites like sparkfun or parallax

If you have more specific questions, please let us know :wink:

is possible enable a smartcard reader? I want the two options. Maybe this project take me some long months but I want to learn :slight_smile:

A lot of smartcard readers will just spit out their info on a virtual com port, so yeah, it probably wouldn’t be hard. Do some research on “Smartcard virtual com” and see what you get.
