NXP Semiconductors' PN7120 Near Field Communication (NFC) controller. The highly integrated PN7120 provides a plug-and-play solution that can be easily integrated into any OS environment. The PN7120 helps create innovative 13.56MHz NFC solutions and enables rapid exploration of new applications and use cases for the Internet of Things (IoT), including various devices and consumer electronics such as home network gateways and routers, set-top boxes (STB), Audio equipment, printers and game consoles.
The device has full compliance with the requirements of the NFC Forum, has a small form-factor antenna, ultra-low power consumption in polling loop mode, and an efficient integrated power management unit (PMU), which can directly power from 2.3V to 5.5V batteries. It combines a contactless NFC front end with an embedded 32-bit ARM (r) Cortex (r) -M0 microcontroller to support NFC card emulation, reader / writer and peer-to-peer mode. The PN7120 embeds a microcontroller core into integrated firmware that supports NFC Controller Interface (NCI) 1.0 and I2C bus communication, and includes integrated non-volatile memory for data storage and custom executable code. With its drivers and software, the PN7120 is optimized for Linux and Android operating systems and is easy to integrate into any other embedded operating system.
OM5577 / PN7120S NFC Controller Development Board (also available from Mouser Store) includes a PN7120 NFC controller board, two single board computer (SBC) interface boards and a MIFARE NFC Forum Type 2 tag, making it easier to develop Linux Or Android. Solution based.
