H663-USB Coupler

H663-USB Coupler

USB interface & PC/SC contactless reader (coupling device), on antenna

Request yours today!

The SpringCard H663-USB 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 speed of the USB interface coupled with the high rate of the ISO 14443 standard enables the H663-USB to reach the best transaction speed.

The module is a H663 module attached on a 69x45mm antenna. It is small and able to communicate with smart cards and compliant badges at a distance up to 10cm.

The module can be updated without being stripped down (firmware upgrade is available here).
