    Hi. I'm currently taking degree of electric engineering (power) and i'm a final year student. This semester im taking pre-thesis. Part of my analysis is to design & simulate automatic electrical system based on RFID.

    Basically what this will do:
    I touch an RFID card/transponder at the reader, it will turn on light,air-conds & projector in the room.
    When i touch for the 2nd time, it will turn off all the above.

    Since im an electrical student, i need help with looking the simple RIFD sensor/reader & RIFD transponder that can be simulated by Pspice or Matlab.
    I managed to find some RIFD reader like Elektor RFID Reader but the circuit is too complicated to me.

    Im really grateful on any help that u guys will give me. Thx for reading this

    Try lookig through the Microchip website, I think they've got a simple set of ICs and a nice tutorial.

    RFID circuits are not simple. Parallax makes a ready built unit with a serial interface.

    Personally, I have used the products of Melexis in one project I was involved in. I hope that this helps you!
