Hi Matthew,

It depends on which reader/writer you’re using. Do you have any more technical details about the RFID components you’re using?

I know Sparkfun and Adafruit both have fantastic guides for their respective products which are linked on our product pages, or available from their websites.

Hi Matthew,

We sure do - that looks like Sparkfun’s M6E Board:

However, it’s a fairly serious bit of kit. The one you’ve linked is also an Arduino shield, but yes. You could use an Arduino and communicate via serial from a Pi, which is probably the least amount of work.
