This project uses the SL030 RFID module with the Raspberry Pi. This will allow the Pi to read the 13.56MHz Mifare RFID cards.
The SL030 modules uses the I2C interface at 3.3v.
The SL030 has a 6 pin header, this would need to connect to the Raspberry Pi as shown below.
A ready made cable is also available to purchase.
UPDATE : 27-08-14
A new software driver and demo is now available from Whaleygeek.co.uk please use this instead.
Install the i2c driver.
Install the Quick2Wire Python library.
Change to the directory where the Quick2wireWire is installed. In our case (your setup might be different):
Download the example python script (thanks to @whaleygeek whaleygeek.co.uk) by:
Change the file permission to allow execute:
chmod +x rfid.py
Start the Python script:
Swipe a RFID card or tag onto the reader and you should get some similar to this screen.
