Atmel LF-RFID Kit Comparison Chart 1. Description ® Atmel offers several types of development and evaluation kits. The Atmel ATA2270-EK1 is an evaluation kit that supports a limited number of modes in stand-alone mode. Support during the entire development phase is provided by the PC interface and the application software. Both tools enable to control the tag configuration. This kit is AVR® ATmega128-based and provides all necessary source and object codes. The CD-ROM also includes layout data in Gerber format. Code and layout data enable the quick and easy design of individual RFID readers. An API (advanced programming interface) allows to control the kit by an user written software. Registered kit users will have access to an Atmel FTP server for firmware and software upgrades. Atmel LF-RFID Kit Comparison Chart Application Note The Atmel kits ATARFID-EK1 and ATARFID-EK2 are based on a commercial reader/programmer supplied by the company GIS. The first version in the kit EK1 operates at 125kHz. It is best suited for access control, industrial and any kind of consumer applications. This EK2 kit operates at 134.2kHz according to the Animal ID standards ISO 11784 and 11785 (FDX-A and FDX-B). Both kits allow not only to read the tags but as well configure and program them. The readers have an USB connection and come with a PC based user interface. Samples tags complete this kit. A different kit is the Atmel ATA5505-EK1. This is a USB-LF-RFID reader in memory stick format based on Atmel’s LF-Reader-AVR circuit. The kit operates at 125kHz and 134.2kHz and is supporting all above already mentioned LF applications. Just plugged in a PC the kit operates stand alone. After a successful read of a tag in UNIQUE-format at 125kHz a red LED indicates this read. If the LED lights green, a Animal ID tag according ISO 11784 and 11785 at 134.2kHz (FDX-B) was detected. The kit can also be controlled using the GUI as used for the ATA2270-EK1. Some tags compete the kit. 4980D–RFID–03/11 2.
