    Which microcontroller are you using? If you're not familiar with microcontrollers well you have your work cut out for you.

    Well that's where you need to start. AVR, PIC are both popular choices. Parallax makes an RFID reader that outputs data in serial format.
    As for the USB stick you need a microcontroller that supports OTG USB (host)

    Start by flashing an LED then serial communications, the USB host bit is much harder.

    As already stated, this project is exceedingly far beyond the skills of a neophyte. First comes the crawling, then the walking, and then the running. If exceptionally astute,... maybe even flying!!:D

    I'm not pointing a finger, or saying it actually IS, but if you're looking to do credit card chips wouldn't this be Illegal?

    Not saying that's what you're doing, and I looked at the above webpage which was interesting... Just hoping you're not looking to do the Nasty on anyone!
    ;)

    What do you want a long range RFID scanner for? Are you trying to locate and access RFID devices which do not belong to you, without their owner's knowledge or consent?

    Hadn't thought of credit cards though. I've never used a contactless system myself, except cards for public transport.

    Hello,

    It is illegal to read or test creditcards.
    We do not want to cooperate in fraud.

    Any new threads on the same subject will be closed too.
