F2F Decoder IC 3-track
  • Low cost solution for single, dual, or triple track readers - one triple-track chip works for all
  • Compact design – 4 mm x 5mm 14 pin MLFTM (also called QFN) surface mount package
  • Minimal external components – only a decoupling capacitor is required. Only 4 signals, VDD, VSS, DATA, and STROBE to connect to your micro-controller for up to 3 tracks
  • Data buffer with Shift-Out – allows full card data to be locally stored on ASIC. Retrieve when desired. Use a low-cost controller with no interrupts, limited memory, low-speed, low pin-count, etc.
  • High noise immunity – with proper PCB layout, the ASIC can withstand noisy PC monitors, cell phones, switching power supplies, etc.
  • High performance decoding – reads badly damaged cards; compensates for poor head mounting
  • AGC (Automatic Gain Control) – reads cards from 30% - 200% of International Standards Organization (ISO) 7811 amplitude standard
  • Low power consumption, low operating voltage
Voltage 2.7 up to 3.6 Vdc
Current Max. 1,5mA for 3 track applications
Sleeping 75µA
Speed 3 up to 100 ips ( 7 up to 250 cm/s)
Temperature (operating) -40°C up to 75°C
