ATM18 = RFID Savvy
RFID appears to be well on its way to becoming a technology of the future. Many people mistrust this technology, while some see it as the answer to every problem. One thing is certain: these tiny devices will be everywhere around us in the future, whether or not we notice them. Our ATM18 board provides the ideal basis for experimenting with RFID devices and implementing your own ideas.
