Hi!
I'm having trouble reading in anything from the RFID ID-20LA Reader I bought from Sparkfun. I'm using the 125kHz capsule (also from Sparkfun) and the Raspberry Pi 3 B+.
I know the capsule and reader work because I had them up and running well on an Arduino. I just need to be able to use them on a RPi. Image
The picture is for reference of what ports I have available. I'm trying to use pins 8 and 10 (or GPIO14, GPIO15), but most of the tutorials I've run into have also needed to use the USB port.
My goal is to read in which capsule the reader read. (Then, I want to code other stuff, but that's for once I can even read in anything.) Right now I'll tap the reader with the capsule, the LED wired up goes off (no code involved), but I can't read in anything. Does anyone know how to code this up in python? Thank you!
