MF RD700
GENERAL INFORMATION
1.1 Scope
This document describes the basic functionality and the electrical specifications of the MF RD700 ‘Pegoda’
reader.
This contactless reader is designed for an easy reader adaptation to a PC to use this device for test and
application purposes. Furthermore this reader can be taken as a reference design for new reader
development based on the MF RC 500 reader IC.
1.2 General Description
®
The MIFARE Pegoda reader, the MF RD700, is a new contactless reader based on the MF RC500 reader
IC. The MF RC500 is member of a new family for highly integrated reader ICs for contactless communication
at 13.56 MHz.
®
All layers of ISO14443A as well as the MIFARE classic protocol are supported.
The Pegoda reader is designed to fulfil several requirements.
It covers all functionality of the MF RC500 to be able to use this reader as a reference design for a new
hardware design based on the MF RC500 reader IC and is designed for easy PC adaptation and application
development as well.
The Pegoda is the basic component for 2 evaluation kits:
•
MF EV700 evaluation kit.
This kit is ready to use the Pegoda reader to develop a PC based application.
This package includes the Pegoda reader, a complete documentation including software libraries and
description as well as the demonstration program MIFAREWnd covering all MIFARE and ISO 14443A
commands.
•
MF EV800 full evaluation kit
The MF EV800 gives the user the possibility to design his own reader either based on the Pegoda or
taking the Pegoda as a reference design for an own development.
The MFEV800 package includes the MF EV700 package and additionally 5 MF RC500 samples and a
reader PCB having the possibility to connect the reader using an RS 232 interface.

Preliminary Specification Rev. 1.0 November 2001
MIFARE  Pegoda Contactless Card Reader
MF RD700
Core component of the Pegoda is the MF RC500, the highly integrated ISO 14443A reader IC. For detailed
information concerning the MF RC 500 refers to the data sheet: ‘MIFARE MF RC500 Highly integrated ISO
14443 reader IC’.
The RC 500 is used as an analog front-end unit to communicate via the antenna to a contactless chip card.
All relevant data coding to send and receive data according to the ISO 14443A is done internally by the MF
RC 500. The MF RC500 itself is controlled by a 16 bit µ-controller using an internal clock frequency of
36MHz generated by an external 8 MHz quartz oscillator.
The µ-controller handles the communication to the host PC via USB. The µ-Controller translates the serial
protocol via USB into remote function calls and executes the appropriate command. To be able to implement
the complete MIFARE Classic protocol and the ISO 14443-4 open protocol commands and to handle the
host communication a 4 Mbit Flash Ram is implemented.
The design of the reader offers the possibility to update the firmware without hardware adaptation.
Note: This document is not intended to give detailed information concerning the MF RM700 and the MF
AN700. Please refer to the related documents in the full evaluation package MF EV800.

2.2 USB Type B Plug
The USB type B plug is the default configuration of the Pegoda reader to connect the reader to a host PC.
This cable is part of the MF EV700 and MF EV800.
Figure 2. USB Type B connectors
The default configuration uses the USB cable to communicate to the Pegoda as well as to supply the 5 V
supply voltage.

2.3 Power Supply
The MF RD700 is a bus powered 5 V USB device. No external power supply has to be connected to start to
work with the Pegoda.
Notes:
In order to fulfil the USB specification version 1.1, the reader module behaves after power on like a low
power device. Having sent an activate command, the Pegoda is activated and the reader module switches to
an idle state resulting in an increased power consumption.
