What is MicroNFCBoard?

MicroNFCBoard is an integrated development platform that makes it easy to use Near Field Communication or NFC (What is NFC? see below for more info). It contains a NFC transceiver, a microcontroller and all the software you need to use NFC.

It can be used with an Arduino, Raspberry Pi, mbed or PC/Mac. There is also a powerful ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller onboard so it can work on its own and you can connect a bunch of things to the board using its various peripherals.

 

What NFC features does the board support?

The board supports the three main NFC modes with a straightforward API (no need to be a NFC expert):

  • Tag reading/writing (types 1, 2, 3 and 4)
  • Peer-to-peer (Android Beam/SNEP)
  • Tag emulation (type 4)

You can select which mode to use or you can enable multiple modes at once (for instance tag reading and peer-to-peer).

The software shipped with the board allows you to encode or decode NFC data in the following formats (NDEF – NFC Data Exchange Format):

  • URL/URI
  • Text
  • Bluetooth pairing info
  • MIME Type + data

In tag reading/writing mode, you can communicate with passive NFC tags.

Tag emulation allows you to emulate a NFC tag and encode its content when the reader/writer (a phone for instance) on the other end tries to read it.

In peer-to-peer mode (Android Beam-compatible) you can send and receive messages over NFC.

What is it compatible with?

MicroNFCBoard is compatible with:

  • Arduino – we will provide an Arduino library; your Arduino can be connected to the board via the SPI bus
  • Raspberry Pi, PC & MAC – we will provide a Python library to control the board via USB
  • mbed – we will provide a mbed C++ API
  • It can be used on its own by programming the onboard ARM micro-controller
