Description of product


The DYScan DE2120 is one of the coolest little barcode scanners we've ever seen. This tiny "scan engine" will read 20 different barcode symbologies — both 1D and 2D! This is achieved by using a camera coupled with on-board image processing to identify and decode everything from UPC codes to QR codes. The module also features two LEDs: one for illumination and one to project the red line that you're used to seeing from laser-based scanners.

On a hardware level, this bare module is a little difficult to connect to. It comes with a 12-position 0.5mm flat-flex cable, so you'll need the mating connector (unless you want to spend some quality time with a soldering iron and some very fine wire) But on a software level, it couldn't be easier to interface with. There are two interface options: TTL Serial and USB. The USB interface will operate in Full-Speed HID mode. Keyboard emulation mode, or even virtual serial mode.
