MINI PN532 NFC/RFID Controller Shield for Arduino






We've taken our popular  PN532 breakout board and turned it into a shield


- the perfect tool for any 13.56MHz RFID or NFC application. The mini


NFC shield uses the PN532 chip-set (the most popular NFC chip on the


market) and is what is embedded in pretty much every phone or device


that does NFC. This chipset is very powerful, and can pretty much do it


all, such as read and write to tags and cards, communicate with phones


(say for payment processing), and 'act' like a NFC tag. While the controller


has many capabilities, our Arduino library currently only supports


reading/writing tags, and does not support phone-to-shield


communication, tag emulation (which requires an external 'secure element'


only available from NXP) or other more advanced features at this time.






NFC (Near Field Communications) is a way for two devices very close to each other to communicate. Sort of like a very short range bluetooth that doesn't require authentication. It is an extension of RFID, so anything you can do with RFID you can do with NFC.




Because it can read and write tags, you can always just use this for RFID-tag projects. We carry a few different tags that work great with this chip. It can also work with any other NFC/RFID Type 1 thru 4 tag (and of course all the other NXP MiFare type tags)




The mini shield was designed by RF engineers using the best test


equipment to create a layout and antenna with 5cm  range, the maximum


range possible using the 13.56MHz technology. You can easily attach the


shield behind a plastic plate with standoffs and still read cards through a


(non-metal) barrier.




This shield is designed to use I2C or SPI communication protocols. SPI is


the default,  It is also easy to change the shield over to SPI where you can


use any 4 digital pins by shorting two solder jumpers on the top of the


PCB. Compatible with any "classic" Arduino - NG, Diecimilla,


Duemilanove, UNO - as well as Mega R3 or later. For using the I2C


interface with Mega R2 or earlier, two wires must be soldered as the I2C


pins are in a different location on earlier Megas.
