Project Summary

Our project aims to enable magnetic card communication of WUSTL ID cards and Dorm Key Cards with locks wirelessly. Our project is based off the the Magspoof project done by Sammy Kamkar. You can find a link to his project here. Our project aims to expand upon this design by having multiple cards stored on the device. As a basic design, we are using the Attiny85 to control the output of a SN75441 motor driver . The motor driver will output the RF signals to an inductor. The inductor should acts as an amplifier to the RF signals that will be readable by a magnetic card swipers. We will have an indicator for the current card in use as well as a means to switch between cards. The challenge comes in that our micro controller, the Attiny85, has only six configurable pins. Three of these pins are taken by controlling the motor driver. This leaves only three pins and outputs. As well as this added functionality we plant to 3d-print a case for the device to provided a better aesthetic to the device.

Nathan: N/A

-found magnetic swiper

Nathan: 30 min

Jon: 30 min

-Wrote Project Proposal

Both: 3 Hours

Week 9/15/2017 - 9/22/2017

-configure mac bootcamp for windows on Jon's computer

Jon: 30 min

Both: 1 Hour

-obtained permission from campus services for the project

Both: N/A

-preliminary design for multi-card circuit
-We are using SN754410 as the motor driver higher current output than L293D -higher current may affect power to chip, 3.7 V, already below operating voltage for chip -may need to create a cell from battery packs

Nathan: 2 Hours

Design 1

-Design 1 has the use of a single input to change card and activate the device.
-Card indicator has an enable LED, and 2 LED's to mark which card is being used


-Design 2 has the use of two input system, on to activate device and one to change cards
-Card indicator has an enable LED, and 1 LED to mark which card is being used

Jonathan: 2 hours

Code Development

inputs control behavior
firmware reconfigure 4 tracks
input algorithm in magspoof.c
Commit #: up to e3aa399
Nathan: 3 hours

Update Wiki

Nathan: 1 Hour

Week 10/14/2017 - 10/20/2017

Worked with card reader

Was able to get the card reader to recognize the device
Under some circumstances, the card info was transmitted
The card format seems to be Track 2 ISO with bit length 5
Disassembled the card reader to better access the read head
May need much stronger inductor for read head to recognize with casing
Nathan 3.5 Hours

Worked debugging reader

had track read with inputs on Track 1 and Track 2 but very inconsistent
plan to use bolt wrapped in wire for strong inductor
Nathan 2.0 Hours/Jonathan 1.5 Hours

3-D Printing Initial Engagement

Ordered PCB:

Ordered 3 Boards from OSH Park
Nathan 0.5 Hours

Tested Box Inductor- did not work

Formula for inductance in given by L= (n^2*U*A)/I, where n=number of turns, U is a constant, A is the cross-section area of the inductor, l is the length of the wire used. Therefore we believe the inductor didn't work because although the area of the box inductor is much larger, as a result, we lost many turns. N is exponential so L weakens faster when n decreases even if A increases.
