Htrm440.doc/HS Page 4 of 27 November 1996 1. Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Introduction - is the name of one of the universal and powerful product lines of our 125 kHz family. The contactless proximity read/write system that works with passive transponders is suitable for various applications. Inductive coupling helps you to achieve reading ranges up to 200 mm and the use of cryptography guarantees highest data security. The HITAG Proximity Reader Module provides you with a universal, cost-effective, small and complete reader unit. It enables communication with the transponders of the 125 kHz family, i.e. Mikron's HITAG 1, HITAG 2 and µEM(H400x) (Read Only) transponders in proximity applications, and the Philips PCF793x family which underlines the particular universality of the reader. Easy integration and application of the HITAG Proximity Reader Module is due to: · small size · uncomplicated interfaces Page 5 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 2. Rev. 2.0 November 1996 System Overview The following drawing shows the HITAG Proximity Reader Module as part of a complete Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system. 2.1. Transponders The HITAG Proximity Reader Module can communicate with Mikron's HITAG 1 and HITAG 2 transponders as well as with further 125kHz transponders as e.g. the µEM(H400x) and the Philips PCF793x family. You use software commands to switch the device from being used as read/write device for HITAG transponders to a read device for µEM(H400x) transponders or a read/write device for the PCF793x and the other way round. 2.2. Host The connection to the host (e.g.: µC or PC) is a serial interface on RS232 RS232 level (version HT RM440/AIE RM440/AIE) for data transmission. Optionally wired interface drivers for RS422 RS422 (version HT RM440/BIE RM440/BIE) and RS485 RS485 (version HT RM440/CIE RM440/CIE) are integrated on the HITAG Proximity Reader Module. 2.3. I/O - Functions Two lines of the HITAG Proximity Reader Module are wired as inputs from e.g. switches, two as outputs to drive LEDs. On the read/write device space is reserved to connect three LEDs as well as to connect e.g. two switches. Htrm440.doc/HS Page 6 of 27 November 1996 2.4. Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Connecting the Antenna There is space reserved on the HITAG Proximity Reader Module for tuning capacitors to tune the antenna in case there is no tuning capacity used on the antenna itself. The antenna has to be mounted in the following way: *) TX2 is used as GND C is used for tuning the antenna. For more detailed information please see Chapter 6.1 (Building HITAG Proximity Antennas). 2.5. Behaviour with Several Transponders If several HITAG transponders arrive simultaneously within the communication field of the antenna of a HITAG Proximity Reader Module, the "stronger" transponder (the nearer one) takes over or - under special circumstances - no communication takes place. If the transponders arrive into the field one after the other, communication is established with the first one, all the other transponders are ignored. Nevertheless it is possible to mute transponders, so that several HITAG transponders can be accessed sequentially. This ensures that no two (or several) HITAG transponders will ever be processed (above all written to!) accidentally at the same time.

Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Metallic Environment, Interferences The communication range is impaired by metallic environment and electromagnetic interferences (e.g.: monitors, keyboards). Therefore, you should keep a distance of at least the antenna´s diameter to metallic surfaces or loops as well as to electromagnetic interferences. If this is not possible, you have to take preventive measures such as using ferrites or shielding for transponder and antenna. 3.1.5. Distance between Two Antennas In order to be able to operate two systems side by side without negative influence on communication ranges, you must place the antennas at a minimum distance of four times the antenna diameter. If you place them at a closer distance be sure to use suitable shielding or synchronisation. 3.1.6.

Block Diagram Note: R2 has only to be used for antenna cable lengths of more than 500 mm. 4.1.1. EEPROM The EEPROM is used to store non-volatile data such as personalization data, keys, passwords, configurations and status information. 4.1.2. Micro Controller The micro controller processes the protocol for the communication between the transponders and the read/write unit. The interface signals are converted so that a HITAG 1, HITAG 2, µEM(H400x) or Philips PCF793x transponder is able to process them and the outgoing signals from the transponder are converted into interface-compatible signals. The second essential micro controller function is its control function. The micro controller activates and deactivates the transmitter, switches the receiver between the modes for the different transponders reception and selects the EEPROM. 4.1.3. Interface: Micro Controller - HOST The device communicates with the host (processor, PC, .) via a serial interface using a baud rate of 9600 baud. Data transfer details are: 1 start bit, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit and no parity bit, the Least Significant Bit is sent first. 4.1.4. Line driver An RS232 RS232 interface driver is integrated on the HITAG Proximity Reader Module. Optionally an RS422 RS422 or an RS485 RS485 interface driver is possible. Htrm440.doc/HS Page 14 of 27 November 1996 4.1.5. Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Transmitter and Receiver The transmitter receives data from the micro controller and modulates the carrier. The receiver demodulates the received data and passes them on to the micro controller for further processing. 4.1.6. Antenna To the design of HITAG Proximity Antennas see Chapter 6.1. 4.1.7. Filtering of Power Supply Disturbances on the supply pins may reduce the performance of the system. For that reason the supply is filtered but also to limit the spurious emissions at the supply connections caused by the digital parts of the module. 4.1.8. I/O Functions Two lines of the HITAG Proximity Reader Module are wired as inputs from e.g. switches, two as outputs to drive LEDs. On the read/write device space is reserved to connect LEDs as well as to connect e.g. two switches. Page 15 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 5. Rev. 2.0 November 1996 Postal Approval The postal approval can only be granted for final products, not just for components like the HITAG Proximity Reader Module. But the read/write device is designed in a way that it is possible to get the postal approvement for a device including the HITAG Proximity Reader Module. Electromagnetic emissions comply with the guidelines in FTZ 17 TR 2100 and ETS 300 683, electromagnetic immunity complies with the guidelines in ETS 300 683. Htrm440.doc/HS Page 16 of 27 November 1996 Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 6. Connection of the Reader Module 6.1. Building HITAG Proximity Antennas The antenna is an important part in the data transmission process between read/write device and transponder. Therefore, you should be particularly careful when implementing the antenna in order to achieve optimum results. An essential aspect in dimensioning HITAG antennas is the ratio between the antenna diameter and the diameter of the transponder coil. This ratio should be within the limit values 3 and 1. If the ratio is too big or too small read/write distances can decrease and difficulties during data transmission may occur. For applications in which the transponders are to be only read, you can also use antennas that diverge from above mentioned instruction. 6.1.1. Basics The following block diagram shows the general architecture of a HITAG Proximity antenna and its connection to the HITAG Proximity Reader Module. with Antenna Equivalent Circuit f = 125 kHz R1 TX1 Î Û out Cs Rx Cs R2 R2 Ls L ÛL Rs AGND HITAG Core Module Antenna When developing an antenna, it is important to take into consideration the read/write device limits, i.e. maximum antenna current and maximum voltage at the receiver input. With an output voltage Ûout of about 2.5 Vp the following limits apply to the read/write device: maximum antenna current: 100 mAp maximum input voltage (at the receiver (ÛL): 32 Vp Page 17 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Rev. 2.0 November 1996 The resistance R1 (22 Ohm) in the block diagram is used as current limiter. It protects the output stage in the event of a possible short circuit in the antenna and is already integrated in the read/write device. R2 (approx. 600 . 1000 ) has only to be used for antenna cable lengths of more than 500 mm. Antenna Coil 6.1.2. The inductance of the coil should be between 350 and 500 µH. The antenna quality factor should be approximately Q = 40. Q= 2f L RS Is the Q factor too high it must be reduced with an additional resistor. It is the aim not to need this additional resistor but use a lower wire diameter of the coil. The following formula describes the approximate calculation of the number of windings for a desired inductance and antenna geometry: a L = 2 a ln - K N 1.9 D The abbreviations read as follows: L a D N K . . . . . desired inductance [nH] antenna circumference [cm] wire diameter [cm] number of windings geometrical constant circular antenna : square antenna : K=1.01 K=1.47 Note: The factor K is normally much smaller than a/D and can be therefore left out: N 1.9 Htrm440.doc/HS L 2aln (a / D) Page 18 of 27 November 1996 6.1.3. Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Measuring the Inductance The inductance of the coil designed following above listed instructions can be measured using the following measuring set-up: A sinus signal of 125 kHz is fed using a function generator. If you measure the current Î and the antenna voltage ÛL you can calculate the inductance according to the following formula: L= 6.1.4. UL I = 2×p×f Antenna Cable Length For optimal performance the antenna cable length should not exceed 5 m. 6.1.5. Antenna Tuning You have to tune the antenna in its final form with the connecting cable. You must not make any changes to the antenna coil or the connecting cable after you finished tuning because mechanical changes influence the electrical values and the antenna is detuned again. A sinus signal of 125 kHz is fed to the antenna using a frequency generator. You measure the voltages Û and ÛR with an oscilloscope. Then you change the frequency until Û and ÛR are in phase. If the resonance frequency thus arrived at is too high, you have to increase CS, if it is too low, you have to decrease CS. The aim is to arrive at a resonance frequency of 125 kHz using CS. Tune the antenna to a frequency of 125kHz ± 4kHz. Page 19 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 6.1.6. Rev. 2.0 November 1996 Determining the Serial Resistance of the Antenna Use an oscilloscope to measure ÛA and ÛR at a frequency of 125 kHz. You can calculate the serial resistance RS with the following formula: Î = 6.1.7. ÛR R3 Þ Rs = ÛA Î Checking the Antenna Voltage ÛL Before connecting the antenna to the read/write device as shown in the illustration below, you must carry out a check calculation of the input level of the read/write device according to the formulas further down in order to prevent damage. Î = Ûout 2.5 Vp Û out R1 + Rs + ( Re ) ÛL = L Î = 2 f (f = 125 kHz) The maximum value for ÛL reads 32 Vp , safeguarding against damage to the input level of the read/write device. With ÛL < 32 Vp the resistance Re can be omitted With ÛL > 32 Vp you have to calculate and insert Re according to the following formula: Re = L Htrm440.doc/HS Û out Û L max - R1 - Rs Þ Page 20 of 27 Re L 0,078 - 22 - Rs November 1996 6.1.8. Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Procedure for Practical Antenna Design The procedure how to design a HITAG Proximity antenna is described in the previous chapters. The main steps are the following: 1. The desired inductance for the antenna coil can be chosen in a range between 350 and 500 µH, e.g. L = 420 µH). 2. The number of windings N can be calculated with the following formula: N = 1.9 L [nH] 2aln(a / D) - K N = 1. 9 420 000 = 2aln (a / D) - K for L = 420 µH: 633 1.9 aln(a / D) Note: The factor K (see also Chapter 6.1.2.) normally is much smaller than a/D and can be therefore left out. 3. Now the antenna can be built up with the desired dimensions ( circumference a) with the calculated number of turns. Note: The antenna coil must not be changed afterwards because with the mechanical dimensions the electrical specifications are changing too. That means the number of turns, the shape, arrangement of the coil windings and antenna supply cable must be in their final form. Note: Metal influences the electrical characteristics of the antenna very much. That is why all future tasks have to be done with the antenna in its final environment if metal will be in the antenna´s neighbourhoud (distance of the metal < maximum antenna diameter). 4. Measurement of the inductance L of the antenna is described in Chapter 6.1.3. 5. Determination of the serial capacitor CS is described in Chapter 6.1.5. Note: The capacitance of the antenna supply cable can be measured or found out in the data sheet of the cable (e.g. Cp = 180 pF/m). 6. Now the antenna has to be tuned according to Chapter 6.1.5. The tuning is acceptable if the resonce frequency is within a range of 125kHz ± 4kHz. 7. The serial resistance RS of the antenna is the impedance of the tuned antenna and is an ohmic resistance at the resonance frequency (f = 125 kHz). It can be calculated as shown in Chapter 6.1.6. Page 21 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 8. November 1996 To get a satisfactory reading distance the quality factor of the antenna coil (for non-metal environment) should be about Q = 40. The quality factor of a coil is calculated as follows: Q= 9. Rev. 2.0 L 2f L = RS RS By knowing RS and the dropping resistor (R1 = 22 ) it is possible to calculate the current Î and the antenna voltage ÛL. It is very important to calculate the antenna voltage before connecting the antenna to the HITAG Proximity Reader Module to avoid damage. Is the calculated value of ÛL higher than ÛL = 32 Vp a resistor Re has to be integrated to protect the module output circuit. The resistor has to be placed as shown in Chapter 6.1.7. 10. After checking the antenna voltage as described in point 9. connect your antenna to the HITAG Proximity Reader Module and measure the read/write distances with your transponders. If the read/write distances do not fulfill your expectations, the following points should be considered: · The size of the antenna and the size of the transponder have to be in a defined ratio (between 3 and 1). That means, if you increase the antenna over a certain size, the maximum read/write distances will decrease by the use of the same transponder. · The optimal shape of the antenna coil is a circle. The performance of a square shaped coil is much better than that of a rectangular shaped coil (with the same circumference). · To get better read/write distances the quality factor of the antenna coil should be increased, but it must not be higher than Q = 40. This can be reached by the following measures: - All conducting material has to be removed from the antenna environment. - A thicker wire can be used for the coil. - Ferrite can be placed behind the antenna coil to concentrate the field. - Extension of the antenna area. - There can be better results by trying another number of turns. Attention: All these measures must not differ from the antenna design instructions of Chapter 6.1. Note: With additional dropping resistor R1 and resistor Re the quality factor of the whole antenna system is about Q = 15. Htrm440.doc/HS Page 22 of 27 November 1996 Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Reference Antennas 6.1.9. Designing an antenna in the way described in this chapter you could use the following values: · · · · · 0.4 mm Cu - laqueur wire 35 turns Diameter of the turns (internal): Tuning frequency: Tuning Capacity depending on: 145 mm 125 kHz - length of the antenna cable - exact way of winding This antenna is best suitable for HITAG. In this performance reading distances of about 140 mm for cards and 130 mm for discs should be achieved. A further antenna configuration is: · · · · · 0.224 mm Cu - laqueur wire 52 turns Diameter of the turns (internal): Tuning frequency: Tuning Capacity depending on: 65 mm 125 kHz - length of the antenna cable - exact way of winding In this case cards and coins can be used and the following approximate communication distances should be achieved: read distance with HITAG 1 and HITAG 2 card: 105 mm read distance with HITAG 1 and HITAG 2 coin: 65 mm The third antenna configuration is the smallest one: · · · · · 0.224 mm Cu - laqueur wire 85 turns Diameter of the turns (internal): Tuning frequency: Tuning Capacity depending on: 35 mm 125 kHz - length of the antenna cable - exact way of winding Using this antenna coins and pills can be operated up to the following approximate distances: read distance with HITAG 1 coin: read distance with HITAG 1 pill: 50 mm 28 mm All distances are given in free air at room temperature. Specifications subject to change without notice. Page 23 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 6.2. Rev. 2.0 November 1996 Possible Sources of Errors by Connecting the HITAG Proximity Reader Module The following error list should be checked if any error (e.g. read/write distances that do not reach the specified values) occurs: · Power supply cable not mounted correctly. · Power supply not in the specified range (U = 9 - 16VDC 16VDC) · Serial interface not connected correctly. · Interference received by the antenna because of an external noise source (e.g. monitor, keyboards). Remedial measure: Removal of the antenna from the interfering area. · Connecting cables of the antenna changed by mistake. · Antenna is mounted in metal environment. Remedial measure: Mount a non-metal space keeper between the antenna and the metal. · Antenna is not designed following the design instructions of Chapter 6. · Inductance of the antenna is too high. · Quality factor of the antenna is too high (> 40). · Antenna current is too high. · Antenna voltage is too high. Htrm440.doc/HS Page 24 of 27 November 1996 7. Rev. 2.0 Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 Security Considerations Developing the HITAG Proximity Reader Module special consideration was given to aspects of security. The following items represent the fundamental framework of the security concept: · · · · 7.1. cryptography mutual authentication password verification and Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) Operating Security The following mechanisms ensure the operation security of the HITAG system. 7.1.1. Anticollision Mode Anticollision Mode in Long Range applications permits you to process several transponders simultaneously. Theoretically up to 232 transponders can be processed simultanously. In practice this number is limited, because of the mutual influence of the transponders - they detune each other, if there are too many too close to each other. In proximity applications using HITAG 1 or HITAG 2 transponders, only one transponder is handled even if there are several transponders within the communication field of the antenna. In this case either no communication takes place or the "stronger" or closer transponder takes over. By muting a selected transponder (HALT Mode) another transponder that is to be found in the communication field of the antenna can be recognized. 7.1.2. Monitoring the Supply Voltage Supply voltage is controlled by a watch dog circuit which triggers a system reset if the supply voltage drops below 4.75 V or if the micro controller fails. 7.1.3. Antenna Rupture, Antenna Short Circuit The HITAG Proximity Reader Module does not get permanently damaged in case of an antenna rupture or a brief antenna short circuit. Page 25 of 27 Htrm440.doc/HS Proximity Reader Module HT RM440 RM440 7.2. Rev. 2.0 November 1996 Data Privacy The use of cryptography (Stream Cypher), mutual authentication, and password verification prevents monitoring and copying the data channel. Therefore, the area of the transponder that only can be accessed enciphered is called "secret area". To make use of cryptography for HITAG 1 transponders you need keys and logdata. Keys are used to initialise the crypto block and logdata are used for mutual authentication. To make use of cryptography for HITAG 2 transponders you need a key and passwords. The Key is used to initialise the crypto block using HITAG 2 in Crypto Mode and passwords are used for authentication for HITAG 2 in Password Mode. The transponders and the HITAG Proximity Reader Module are provided with identical transport keys and transport logdata so that you can start operating them right away. The KeyInit Password is set to 0x00000000, HITAG 1 Keys and Logdata are set to 0x00000000, HITAG 2 Key is set to 0x4D494B524F4E, HITAG 2 Password TAG to 0xAA4854 and HITAG 2 Password RWD to 0x4D494B52 by Philips Semiconductors (predefined transport values). In order to offer our OEM clients high flexibility, the configuration of the transponder memory, password, keys and logdata can be changed.
