H663

H663

OEM USB PC/SC contactless/RFID/NFC coupler module (without antenna)

The H663 module is designed to be the core of a 13.56MHz reader/writer communicating with a host (computer or embedded system) supporting the PC/SC standard.

The H663 module needs to be associated with one of the SpringCard’s portfolio antennas or a custom-made one, according to your size constraints or the type of tag to support.

The H663S is designed to be associated with balanced antennas.

The H663A is designed to be associated with 50Ω unbalanced antennas.

See an example of integrating the H663 module: in printers.
