Manufacturer: JADAK
THINGMAGIC MERCURY®XPRESS PLATFORM
Introduction

The Mercury xPRESS Platform includes hardware, software and documentation to enable rapid development of low cost, high-performance application specific RFID readers and embedded solutions based on the ThingMagic® Mercury6e Series of UHF RFID Modules. The platform combines ThingMagic’s embedded RFID technology with a microcontroller and wide range of transport interfaces. This hardware platform is supported by an SDK built on the ThingMagic Mercury C API. To support ongoing innovation, integrated development tools, device drivers, and application software will be enhanced with regular future releases that expand capabilities and enable the development of a wider range of end products.
