Skyetek - M2

Based on the same security standards used by the U.S. Department of Defense and financial sector, the SkyeModule M2 provides rich HF tag/protocol support and optimal performance for RFID embedded applications.

The key benefits of the M2 Module are in Security where best-in-class cryptographic standards, provide secure support for generic tags, saving customers 60–70% compared to tags that use proprietary security . In Investment Protection, open, flexible architecture that is forward compatible and highly scalable, providing unparalleled investment protection. And in Superior Embeddabilty the M2's small size and intelligent software eases integration and provides customers with a significant cost-performance advantage.


  • Standardized encryption algorithms (DES, 3DES, and AES)
  • Secure hash functions (SHA and MD5)
  • Internal Pseudo-Random Number Generator (PRNG)
  • Support for proprietary encryption, such as Mifare
  • Support for future algorithms via on-board 7816 slot
  • Peripheral devices for encryption algorithms and key storage
  • Tagnostic support for more ISO 15693 and 14443 A/B tags than any other comparable reader.
  • TagIQ recognizes the unique characteristics of each tag so that read/write performance is maximized.
  • Common Blade form factor shares the same size, connection method, and software interface as the SkyeModule M9 UHF reader, optimizing design and solution flexibility.
  • Firmware and ReaderDNA licensing allows customers to manufacture modules at cost.
  • Miniscule footprint - 49% smaller than a standard-size business card
  • Simple and intuitive API
  • Best-in-class output power (200mW) and power management
  • Noise reduction technology
  • Software Adjustable Host Interfaces: UART (TTL), SPI, USB
  • Seven General Purpose I/O
