1. RFID Reader/Writer Overview
RFID Reader/Writer product is the solution due AT-COM designed and produced are full of features of the solution card read/write RFID tag, the product can read/write the cards are 13.56 Mhz operating frequency usage according to the ISO/IEC 15693, ISO/IEC 14443 type A/B, ISO/IEC 18092 , NFC forum type 1, 2, 3, 4. The product uses RFID solution of ST Microelectronic manufacturer using the STM32F103C8T6 microcontroller (CPU Core 32-bit ARM Cortex ™-M3) with 64 KB Flash, 20 Kbytes SRAM, processing speed up to 72MHz in combination with RFID data transceiver chip CR95HF-VMD5T, the antenna was designed to integrate on PCB. In addition, the product is closed shell box with dimensions 105 x 70 x 12 mm compact and aesthetic, having 1 green LED, 1 Buzzer for the announcement of the necessary information required by the user. The user can optionally add the shell, the shell product box has 2 version:

3. Features of RFID Reader/Writer
- As for the ISO/IEC 14443 tags, the tag identifies the actual distance is 3 cm.
- For ISO/IEC15693 tags then the actual card identification distance of up to 5 cm.
- 1 single LEDs Green used to report the status of RFID.
- 1 Buzzer speaker with the volume of 80dB.
Users simply need to put RFID tags on the scan of the RFID Reader/Writer is able to obtain information and data in the card, or can write data to the card according to needs of use.

5. Manual uses the tag write software
To use the tag write software, we use RFID Reader/Writer product version RS232 interface, conversion cable USB – RS232, power supply 5VDC and connect hardware as the figure:
To install the driver for the USB-RS232 converter cable, you download driver follow a link: http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_id=225&pcid=41
After the installation is finished, you connect the USB to RS232 cable with the computer, the computer will identify the driver for the cable. To check, you right Click on My Computer icon select Manage, Click on Device Manager entry; If installing the driver successfully, it will show as picture. Each computer can receive a different COM port, here, the computer identity is "USB Serial Port (COM9)".
You run the ATCRFID.exe software and connect to the COM port has just plugged into the computer on (COM 9)
After connected to the COM port is successful, we enter the RFID tag card inscribed on the frame Data 1 and Data 2 and click on the button tag.
The software will alert users to put RFID tags on to the record.
Users who insert the card the antenna of the RFID Reader/Writer products to write data to the tags.
After write tags are completed, the user will hear the loudspeaker Announces 3 beep and the on-screen display of the recorded announcement tags. End the process of write tags.
Note: after 10 minutes since the click on the button tag, without the tag inserted into the scanner, the software will notice most of the time, users must record the operation from scratch to write data to the tag.
