ID TECH Quickmag™ Three-Track Decoding Chip for Magnetic Stripes

ID Technologies Quickmag Three-Track Decoding Chip for Magnetic StripesDelivers high performance.
ID TECH’s new QuickMag chip is an exceptionally reliable high-speed decoder of magnetic stripe data. It decodes one, two, or three tracks of information, supports a reading speed of up to 80 inches per second, and is extraordinarily tolerant of imperfect media (such as "jitter" cards).

Includes full data editing capabilities.
ID TECH QuickMag has the most flexible data editing capability of any chip designed expressly for magnetic card formats. In addition, a complete feature set derives from the most popular intelligent magnetic stripe readers. Beeper and LED indicators are also supported.

Fits where other chips can't.
A fully-featured single-chip solution, ID TECH QuickMag is smaller (less than 18mm square) and has lower power requirements than any comparable chip. Parameters are selectable for both keyboard wedge and RS-232 configurations. Formats decoded are ISO 7811, California DMV, and AAMVA.

Configures easily with Windows-based software.
ID TECH QuickMag is easily configured using a Windows-based software utility. Preambles, postambles, formats, and string searches are all user-selectable. The RS-232 configuration is set directly; key-in commands for the keyboard wedge configuration are also generated.
