SkyeModule™ M1 (HF)


The SkyeModule™ M1, a multi-protocol embedded HF 13.56 MHz RFID reader module for OEMs, provides a low-power, high-performance, and cost-effective option to embed RFID as a feature in a variety of products.

With its on-board power regulator circuit, the M1 can operate from a low 1.8 to 5.0 volts. The native power management intelligence allows the current to be set as low as 60 μA (Sleep Mode), making the M1 ideal for use in battery operated devices.  The SkyeModule M1 runs on SkyeOS, the brains behind all SkyeTek readers, easing integration and providing customers with a significant cost-performance advantage. 

Based on the same Advanced Universal Reader Architecture (AURA) used by all SkyeTek RFID readers, the SkyeModule M1 offers customers investment protection through a flexible, forward-compatible platform that will support future tag protocols, security features, and customized enhancements.
