Add a cool touch interface with your project with this microcontroller-friendly track-pad. We found an easy to use PS/2 track-pad that is easy to use and interface with. This track-pad is two-in-one: you can use it either in relative 'mouse mode', where it spit out finger movements as they change OR..
Decode what's hidden on your credit cards, or use it for an access system - this mag-stripe card reader can decode the two most common tracks used, #1 and #2! We like this small and easy to use mag-stripe reader for being so microcontroller-friendly. Instead of a USB port, it has a PS/2 interface an..
Decode what's hidden on your credit cards, or use it for an access system - this mag-stripe card reader can decode all three tracks! We like this small and easy to use mag-stripe reader for being so microcontroller-friendly. Instead of a USB port, it has a PS/2 interface and acts like a 'keyboard'. ..
This is a nice solution to wanting to use PS/2 devices (such as our capacitive touch pad or magstripe readers). It's also handy if you want to connect a keyboard and mouse to a Raspberry Pi or Beagle Bone without taking up two USB ports. Inside is a full translation chip - a small USB microcontrolle..
Although you may not see PS/2 keyboards and mice as often on desktop computers, there's still tons of them out there, and they're really easy to interface to a microcontroller. PS/2 devices are powered by 5V and use two data pins to communicate back and forth. There's tons of example code out there ..
For projects where you just want to use RFID MIFARE tags or cards, this nicely packaged RFID reader may be more desirable than our RFID/NFC shield or breakout. The nice thing about this reader is that its packaged in plastic, has an LED and buzzer to indicate when a card is read..
