You will be making a small portable magnetic reader that runs off a battery and has similar dimensions to 4 x 5 x 15mm .
This magnetic card reader collects/stores tracks 1 and 2 on its 2mags of onboard memory. The magnetic head and magnetic stripe will be ISO. You will have to create the F2F decoding for it. You will make it so it can run at all different speeds, fast and slow. The data should be read and recovered even when the swipe was not completely successful. All interrupted swipes are collected. The battery usage should be very low so when swipes are not made the board automatically goes to sleep until the next swipe. All swipes should be time stamped. Another feature is that we would like it so when selected in the software you can swipe a card and the data will pop right up on notepad after swiped when plugged into the computer by the USB cable.
You will be creating this project from scratch.
