PN7120, the best plug'n play full NFC solution - easy integration into any OS environment, with integrated firmware and NCI interface designed for contactless communication at 13.56 MHz.
It is the ideal solution for rapidly integrating NFC technology in any application, especially those running OS environment like Linux and Android, reducing Bill of Material (BOM) size and cost, thanks to:
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 contactless front-end design brings a major performance step-up with on one hand a higher sensitivity and on the other hand the capability to work in active load modulation communication enabling the support of small antenna form factor.
For contactless card functionality, the PN7120 can act autonomously if previously configured by the host in such a manner.
PN7120 integrated firmware provides an easy integration and validation cycle as all the NFC real-time constraints, protocols and device discovery (polling loop) are being taken care internally. In few NCI commands, host SW can configure the PN7120 to notify for card or peer detection and start communicating with them.
