Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking the PN7120 NFC controller from NXP Semiconductors. The highly integrated PN7120 provides a plug-and-play, full NFC solution for easy integration into any OS environment. The PN7120 helps create innovative 13.56 MHz NFC solutions and enables fast exploration of new applications and use cases for Internet-of-Things (IoT), including a variety of appliances and consumer electronics such as home network gateways and routers, set-top-boxes (STBs), audio devices, printers, and gaming consoles.
The NXP PN7120 NFC controller, now available from Mouser Electronics, features full NFC forum compliancy with small form factor antenna, ultra-low power consumption in polling loop mode, and a highly efficient integrated power management unit (PMU) that allows direct supply from a battery at 2.3V to 5.5V. It combines a contactless NFC front-end with an embedded 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0 microcontroller to support NFC card emulation, reader/writer, and peer-to-peer modes. The PN7120 embeds the microcontroller core with integrated firmware supporting the NFC controller interface (NCI) 1.0 and I2C-bus communication, and includes integrated non-volatile memory to store data and executable code for customization. Through 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.
The OM5577/PN7120S NFC controller development board, also available from Mouser Electronics, contains a PN7120 NFC controller board, two single-board computer (SBC) interface boards, and a MIFARE NFC forum type 2 tag for even easier development of Linux- or Android-based solutions.
