Brill!!! Does anyone know where you can buy just the chips for the RFID as we are trying stuff for manufacturing, i believe you cannot get them (chip) seperatley.

Any help would be great!

Harry.

You can get RFID tags in many forms. Just talk with a manufacture of the tags.

Are you trying to design and manufacture your own enclosure for the chips?

Can be tiny if it is a passive device.

Yes, yes it will.

In fact;

Attached is my keyfob rfid to get into our local hackerspace --

Regular north american 'weiser' keys, handcuff key, car key, and grey thing is a fob that reads from about 5-10cm to open our door.

You can't reprogram the code in the fob, you get a fob and it has a unique code; so you can't just use it 'as' something unless the reader you're using is expecting the code in the fob. (You can't take a different fob and put its code IN this fob).
