X1 is a versatile NFC reader/writer designed for authentication, cashless payments, membership management and other desktop or embedded applications.
The reader is compliant with a host of popular smart card standards in use today, including Mifare, NTAG and DESFire, as well as NFC-enabled mobile phones. Its built-in SIM card slot allows for contact card communications defined by the ISO 15693 standard.
X1 firmware options include “keyboard wedge” mode and “G2K API” mode. Keyboard wedge firmware translates digital signals from the X1 into keyboard strokes for a computer. The data sent through a wedge appears as if it was typed into a text field, while the keyboard itself remains fully functional. Alternatively, the G2K API mode introduces significant flexibility for custom development through our proprietary API. It grants complete control over the reader and allows for development of comprehensive solutions. The API is part of our SDK, available to buy online.
The reader is available in a case or as an OEM module. The high impact plastic casing is ideal for desktop use and features a large card landing zone. The module option comes as a single PCB that is easy to integrate into larger machinery.
