ThingMagic M2 (HF)

Multi-Protocol, Secure HF RFID Reader

Manufacturer: JADAK
ThingMagic M2 (HF)

The ThingMagic® M2 HF Embedded RFID Module is JADAK’s premium multi-protocol RFID module designed for OEMs who build for high privacy protection, anti-counterfeiting, and anti-tampering applications like the pharmaceutical and medical supplies industry, and require complete customizable control over how data is shared.

The M2 is powerful enough to read and write to any transponder based on ISO 14443 (parts 2, 3, and 4) and ISO 15693 communication standards; and securely encrypts and transmits using Data Encryption Standard (DES), Triple-DES, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA), MD5, and an internal Pseudo-Random Number Generator (PRNG).

Despite its powerful security features, the M2 has a minimal footprint and can fit into most new or existing OEM designs. It is outfitted with 7 General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) pins with other available interfaces including USB 2.0, and Common Blade Interface; software adjustable host interfaces UART (TTL), SPI and I2C; and the capability to attach an external antenna for greater read range.

Features and Benefits

  • ThingMagic® secure support for generic tags reduce costs up to 60-70% compared to proprietary security features
