Flipper Zero Explained, Overview, Usage, Features & Technical Specification

Flipper Zero is a handheld tool packed with a range of sensors, antennas, and chips that was released in August 2020 through Kickstarter’s crowd-funding campaign, Firmware was based on FREE RTOS, has a central processing unit STMicroelectronics STM32WB55, a memory of 256KB RAM and supporting 1024KB flash, removable storage USB is Micro SD (up to 256GB). Flipper Zero has a monochrome orange backlight 1.4inches LCD screen with a resolution of 128×64 pixels. Dimensions 100 x 40 x 25 mm and can be connected via NFC, 125 kHz RFID, Sub-1 GHz Radio, Infrared port, GPIO pins, Bluetooth LE, USB 2.0, 1-Wire, initially developed for interaction with access control devices. The device can read, copy, and emulate RFID and NFC tags, radio remotes, iButton, and digital access keys, along with a GPIO interface.

Overview of Flipper Zero

Flipper Zero is designed for engagement with different types of access control systems, radio protocols, RFID, infrared signals, and near-field communication (NFC). The device can be used without a cell phone or a laptop via a 5-position D-pad controller. For interacting with external devices, the Flippernhas normal input/output (GPIO) pinholes on the top side. User data and firmware updates are stored on a Micro SD card as well as external SD (up to 256 GB). Some actions, such as firmware or user data updates, require a connection to a computer or a smartphone with the developer’s software installed.

Usage and Applicability of Flipper Zero

Flipper Zero is a learning tool majorly, designed to make cybersecurity information more accessible and user-friendly and change the way users think about the sophistication of these devices being used digitally. Much of the technology and techniques Flipper Zero uses have been around for years providing access to users here it depends that their use is for constructive purposes or otherwise as this tool can be used in destructive ways so it’s important that whoever has the tool in hand.

Flipper Zero Transceivers Coverage

There are optimum ranges for a wider range of wireless devices and access control systems, such as garage door remotes, boom barriers, main gates of different institutions, and remote keyless systems used in cars.

Flipper has an in-house built Sub-1 GHZ transceivers, 433MHz antenna, and a CC1101 chip, which makes it a powerful transceiver capable of up to 50 meters range.
