Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. It's a dual antenna.
If you look at the picture you see two groups of screw contacts. One group marked with (LF) and the other (HF).
The LF coil is hidden under the smaller PCB. You can see the HF traces on the larger PCB.Last updated:
We haven't had time to look at that. Don't worry, it was on our list of priority items prior to starting this campaign.Last updated:
No, not at this moment. But hey, we might change our minds about it.Last updated:
The idea is to be able to use the proxmark not only with contactless cards, but also contact, smart cards, with ISO7816 APDU, via the sim card module.
What we missed was the possibility to take tag which has dual interfaces like modern EMV cards and have a one place to conduct research on it. We have a vision where you can write Lua-scripts where you test the RFID part and then hook the smart card in and test further. We hope that this will enable researchers to do their thing.
All PCB's have the sim-card module installed.
We don't have adapted the firmware to use it yet. Maybe some of you guys will be able to contribute to the open-source firmware on Github and help us add functionality?
Offical PM3 Firmware
Iceman Fork of PM3, (bleeding edge firmware)
The proxmark3 is a powerful general purpose RFID tool, the size of a deck of cards, designed to snoop, listen and emulate everything from Low Frequency (125kHz) to High Frequency (13.56MHz) tags.

I would imagine that all units produced will have the chip markings ground off in order to fight off cloners. It will be done by laser in the final version.Last updated:
RFXsecure is a Singapore-based company, It turns out that kickstarter only allows for local currency for a project, so all pledges are in Singapore Dollars.Last updated:
We welcome the idea since creating antennas is quite a handcraft. We have tried very hard to get these antennas to work properly with the proxmark3 and we did quite a good job.Last updated:
That is a hard one and the reason is since the glasschips has very small antennas so the antenna must be very small and directed but it must also be lower voltage since otherwise the glasschip antenna shuts down in order to protect it. We have not tuned these antennas for it since we opted for a general broadend LF usage.
We welcome the idea of making a set of antennas that works well with just glasschips in order for people with implants should be able to use the proxmark3 Rdv40,Last updated:
Dunno if you guys love to meet us that much? How about writing us a message or comment and lets work something out.
I mean, its not every day you get to hang with some of the best RFID dudes in the world...Last updated:
We're glad you asked.
It's a UART interface connected using the FPC port.
The UART port available through the FPC is used to connect to a bluetooth module.
The external bluetooth module don't exist (yet), that will be something for later if all goes well.
Some of you hardware hackers might be able to do something yourself!Last updated:
The standalone modes works just like normally. That is firmware based.
However you need a power source to run it.
See FAQ answer for battery question.Last updated:
Perfect question actually.
We are shipping from China, so all packages will be subject to the receiving country customs laws. The pledger is sole responsible for making sure the proper taxes and customs are paid.
Sorry, we don't have warehouses all over the world yet.
We hope for your understanding in this matter.Last updated:
It should be pointed out quite early that the proxmark3 is not really for beginners. If you are not already fairly familiar with electronics, embedded programming, some RF design and ISO standards, this device will probably bring you more frustration than anything else !
Users that do not understand the basic principles behind RFID may have difficulty using the device.Last updated:
