In the same need: an on-board software RESET function. In order to have the reader put out a new reading, to check up whether the tag is still there or not.
This USB breakout is very comfortable and working quite fantastically, unfortunately a software reset function seems to be missing. I have searched the net for some hours now to find someone who pulled the trick doing some sort of a SOFTWARE RESET through the USB board directly, but no success yet.
It would be great to do something like Serial.write("reset"); to probe the reader for a new reading.
SPARKFUN, could you confirm this software reset is or is not available on the RFID USB Breakout?
If not available, would there be way to make a HACK to the board so no external microcontroller is needed to make the Reset happen?
Thanks a lot!
ps. board ordered through http://www.antratek.nl/RFID.html (Europe, NL)
