RFID Reader Reviewed

Phidget RFID Reader

Wei-Meng Lee has an RFID review / tutorial in this month’s CODE magazine called Fun With RFID. The Phidget RFID reader was reviewed and used as part of the article. The online preview of the article doesn’t get to the part with Phidgets RFID reader, but you can check out the article and buy the magazine if you are interested :)

Code Magazine & Wei-Meng sent over the actual article as a PDF for us to provide to our readers. That was very nice of them. They also provided this discounted subscription link for people interested in getting the magazine.

When it comes to buying mini PCs there really is only one name to know and it’s

Logic Supply carries many many different systems and cases to choose from. Their rugged fanless selection offers 11 computer choices now. For the PC based robotics developer this is a one stop shop for buying the “brain” to your creation. Of course you will still need to give your Frankenstein a personality and that’s the job of your code :)

Dev over at the store suggested we point out the SolidLogic GN-L01 Fanless Nano-ITX System to our developers. (black case pictured above) This computer is fanless and only 7.75″ x 6.1″ x 2.4″! Dev also said that they will be coming out with some more very compact systems over the next few months. I recommend signing up for their newsletter. It’s a good one to be on.
