NFC Click Board
NFC Click Board™ is a mikroBUS add-on board with a versatile near field communications controller from NXP the PN7120 IC.
NFC devices are used in contactless payment systems, electronic ticketing, smartcards, but also in retail and advertising inexpensive NFC tags can be embedded into packaging labels, flyers or posters.
NFC Click is a mikroBUS add-on board with a versatile near field communications controller from NXP, the PN7120 IC. NFC devices are used in contactless payment systems, electronic ticketing, smartcards, but also in retail and advertising inexpensive NFC tags can be embedded into packaging labels, flyers or posters.
This board has full compliancy with NFC Forum specifications which means that you will be able to use the full potential of NFC and its three distinct operating modes:
1. Card emulation
In other words, NFC Click can be set to behave either as an NFC reader, or a tag, or to establish a two-way connection with another NFC device.
Fully Compliant and Easy to Integrate
The NXP's PN7120 IC integrates an ARM Cortex-M0 MCU, which enables easier integration into designs, because it requires fewer resources from the host MCU. The integrated firmware provides all NFC protocols for performing the contactless communication in charge of the modulation, data processing and error detection.
The board communicates with the target board MCU through the mikroBUS I2C interface, in compliance with NCI 1.0 host protocols (NCI stands for NFC controller interface). RST and INT pins provide additional functionality. The board uses a 3.3V power supply.
PN7120 embeds a new generation RF contactless front-end supporting various transmission modes according to NFCIP-1 and NFCIP-2, ISO/IEC14443, ISO/IEC 15693, ISO/IEC 18000-3, MIFARE and FeliCa specifications. It embeds an ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller core loaded with the integrated firmware supporting the NCI 1.0 host communication.The module also has a highly integrated demodulator and decoder, as well as buffered output drivers to connect an antenna with minimum number of external components
The tap-and-go nature of NFC makes many areas of life more convenient. From mobile payments to advertising, from home automation to building security.
NFC is already pervasive and widespread. As it is a standard feature of newer smartphones, many people carry an NFC chip with them at all times. There are many innovative uses and applications that are yet to be discovered, many markets that are yet to be tapped.You can use it in all devices requiring NFC functionality especially those running in an Andrond or Linux environment. Use it in TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray decoders, audio devices or home automation, gateways, and wireless routers. Printers, IP phones, gaming consoles, the list goes on and on.
