As of today, the amiiqo will be known as “N2 Elite“, or N^2 in short. This rebranding is not merely the result of a legal matter but is their first step into expanding their existing product with exciting new functionalities! As you know the firmware on our N^2 NFC emulation tag is fully upgradeable, and they have many exciting functionalities planned for users.
Secondly, the USB NFC reader/writer hardware is currently rolling out and being shipped out to early adopters of the N^2 product line. This addition to the N^2 hardware family, both as a way for people without an android phone to manage their N^2 tag as well as a general purpose NFC/RFID reader/writer!
The hardware is based around the known NXP MFRC522 chip and connects to the computer using a USBserial bridge (Oh, and they added 3 LEDs for various methods of displaying status ). They have extensively been testing this hardware and implemented the N^2 manager as a reference application. They hope to soon be able to provide documentation and an SDK so fellow developers can repurpose our reader/writer hardware to talk to any RFID/NFC/ISO14443 device they like.
To accompany the release of the N^2 USB NFC reader/writer we’ll also release the N^2 manager app soon. This cross-platform application for Windows, OSX and Linux will allow you to manage your N^2 tag like you would with the android application. Simple, fast and easy!
The look and feel of the android app has been a bit crude from the start. A proof of concept you could say… Don’t fret, they have been hard at work redesigning the flow and look and feel of the app. The new app allows to manage separate “profiles” for your N^2 tag and has been completely redesigned to give the user the android user experience!
