ACM1552U-Y3 USB NFC Reader Module with Detachable Antenna Board was developed based on the 13.56 MHz contactless technology. It can access contactless card and devices following the ISO 14443, ISO 15693 and ISO 18092 standards. This smart card reader module is designed to easily integrate embedded systems.

ACM1552U-Y3 is a CCID & PC/SC compliant reader, this plug-and-play NFC reader makes use of high-speed communication for contactless cards at a maximum of 848 kbps, which makes it suitable for highly demanding applications. It also supports three NFC modes:

  • Smart Card Reader/Writer
  • Card Emulation
  • Keyboard Emulation (Configured by this tool


By integrating the three NFC modes, this NFC reader module provides versatility, cost-effectiveness, and flexibility, making it a powerful and valuable solution for smart card applications.

ACM1552U-Y3 has a detachable antenna and an optional USB cable, allowing it to be the perfect front-end interface module for NFC transaction applications, including vending machine payment systems, kiosks, gaming machines, and other integrated systems.
