The Mini DB decoder board is dedicated for use with our latest flagship scan engines: the Ultra-Slim Area-Imaging Engines, which include the N6600 LED aimer and the N6603 laser aimer. Combining the Mini DB decoder board with a slim scan engine lets you easily embed a complete 2D imaging solution in an exeptionally small space.
Saves Space, No Sacrifice in Performance
The Mini DB is 60% smaller than previous-generation decoder boards, yet doesn’t sacrifice Honeywell’s renowned decoding capability.
Advanced Imaging Technology
Honeywell Adaptus® imaging technology lends full symbology support, outstanding motion tolerance, mobile phone reading, and even reads damaged barcodes.
Supports Multiple Interfaces
Including both B2B (board to board) and flex cable connections with RS232 and USB options.
Optimized for Ultra-Slim Scan Engines
Optimized for use with Honeywell ultra-slim area-imaging engines, including the N6600 (LED-based aimer) and N6603 (laser-based aimer). Also supports our N5600 Series.
Customize With Open-System Architecture
TotalFreedom support offers an open-system architecture for developing software plug-ins to implement value-added custom features such as Honeywell’s EasyDL™.
Ensures continuous innovation and support.
Now you can add high performance 2D imaging to even the smallest devices: miniature handheld scanners, sleek consumerized smartphones and even wearable devices. Simply combine the Mini DB decoder board with an N6600 (LED aimer) or N6603 (laser aimer) ultra-slim area-imaging engine. It’s the easy way to embed a complete 2D imaging solution in an exceptionally small space – and enjoy greater design flexibility and integration than ever before.
Mini DB supports the N660X engines’ parallel interface (30-pin). For the host interface, we creatively combined three types of host connections:
Mini DB includes our latest decode library for optimized performance. You'll also benefit from the most complete barcode symbology support, unparalleled motion tolerance, and aggressive scanning on all types of barcodes – even those poorly printed, or read directly off smartphone screens.
