The SpringCard TwistyWriter HSP module fits for being added to any system with a USB host port and supporting PC/SC standard. The TwistyWriter HSP is based on a H663 module and measures 69x45mm. It is a contactless reader/writer including a mini-SIM size SAM card slot (ID-000 / 2FF size).
The speed of the USB interface combined to the high rate of the ISO 14443 standard enable the module to reach the best transaction speed.
The module must be associated with a symmetric (balanced) antenna depending on your size constraints and on the type of tag to support. Have a look in our antennas portfolio or ask for a custom-made one. Your SpringCard contact will also guide you to the ribbon cable you need.
Here is the presentation of the TwistyWriter HSP in video.
