 Product Description

SkyeTek Gemini NFC Reader Module Development Kit

The SkyeModule Gemini Evaluation Kit is a simple technology kit to support the SkyeModule Gemini. The Gemini is a low-cost, ultra-low power, MIFARE and NFC reader/writer module. A cutting edge ARM Cortex microcontroller and latest HF transceiver technology coupled with the reader's intelligent operating system make this module the most versatile HF RFID module at the bottom tier price point. The Gemini module's support for the secure MIFARE family of tags offer a low-cost and robust method of authentication for consumables. At about the size of a matchbook, this module can be fit into almost any new or existing OEM design. The Gemini module is also well suited for battery powered and other power sensitive applications because of the low power features including software stand-by mode and deep sleep mode.

Product Reviews

  1. Not much support for Linux

    Posted by

    The product is great if you want to use it with windows OS, when I tried with Raspberry Pi I had some difficulties as it does not seem to be as compatible, I can't find the device through serial port which is strange to me. There is only one page I found with some C library which also is unclear for a junior developer. Also a bit pricey. The product is good in regards that it can read various RFID tags and NFC tags.
