3 This is now the official Proxmark repository!
4
5 INTRODUCTION:
6
7 The proxmark3 is a powerful general purpose RFID tool, the size of a deck
8 of cards, designed to snoop, listen and emulate everything from
9 Low Frequency (125kHz) to High Frequency (13.56MHz) tags.
10
11 This repository contains enough software, logic (for the FPGA), and design
12 documentation for the hardware that you could, at least in theory,
13 do something useful with a proxmark3.

55 Most of the ultra-low-volume contract assemblers could put
56 something like this together with a reasonable yield. A run of around
57 a dozen units is probably cost-effective. The BOM includes (possibly-
58 outdated) component pricing, and everything is available from Digikey
59 and the usual distributors.
60
61 If you've never assembled a modern circuit board by hand, then this is
62 not a good place to start. Some of the components (e.g. the crystals)
63 must not be assembled with a soldering iron, and require hot air.
64
65 The schematics are included; the component values given are not
66 necessarily correct for all situations, but it should be possible to do
67 nearly anything you would want with appropriate population options.
68
69 The printed circuit board artwork is also available, as Gerbers and an
70 Excellon drill file.
