Abstract

A stick on number reader system which provides direct binary-coded decimal (BCD) output to computer or other logistics control equipment is shown in the drawing. It also is man readable for h man recognition. Using copper clad organic circuit board material, numerals are fashioned by conventional photolithography techniques (photoresist and etch), as shown in Fig. 1.

Man/Machine Readable Tag System

A stick on number reader system which provides direct binary-coded decimal (BCD) output to computer or other logistics control equipment is shown in the drawing. It also is man readable for h man recognition. Using copper clad organic circuit board material, numerals are fashioned by conventional photolithography techniques (photoresist and etch), as shown in Fig. 1.

Each numeral is etched out of copper and connected electrically to the corner pads as shown. The pad positions represent binary decimal coding and can be used for the numerals 0-9 as follows:

(Image Omitted)

A simple five-multiprobe read block such as shown in Fig. 2, can provide character recognition in B:CD format.
