  • 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)

No public wish lists :(
