Brief of RFID Device


PN532 supports only 13.56MHz NFC tags and cards. It’s the cheapest device that supports running mfoc – Mifare Classic Offline Cracking tools. It’s based on an 8051 chip which has the lowest calculation.


ACR122U is made by ACS company which is also based on PN532 chip. The most reason to use this reader is its all platform SDK and is better for development.
