The NFC transceiver is considered for adding NFC functionality to mobile devices and other applications having embedded MCU. The device can perform in one of three modes: RFID/NFC reader, NFC Peer, or Card Emulation mode. This 13.56 MHz NFC IP in generic low-cost incompatibility with ISO/IEC 14443 and ISO15693 suited for NFC-equipped smartphone. It covers a legacy passive mode, (battery-less) and an active mode (battery-assisted), for longer range or poor antenna. With the add-on of quality set and execution of custom, RFID protocols can be attained by using direct modes with MCU-controlled bit coding and framing. Straight access to RF FrontEnd control registers permits fine-tuning of different parameters at the physical layer.
- Differential antenna interfaces with dedicated external capacitors for antenna impedance matching
- Supports ISO14443 A standards in both reader and card emulation mode
- 27.56 MHz Xtal for active mode only
- Support ISO15693 standard in reader mode
- Sleep mode with ultra-low power consumption (<1 µA)
- Analog front-end area 0.35 mm2
- Integrated voltage regulators for analog and digital parts and I/O
- Power Consumption: 20 uA(sleep mode), 80mA(active mode)
- Wake-up with programmable RF field level
- -40 °C to +85 °C temperature range
- RF possible to migrate to another RF process.
- It will be a faster and easier solution for any semiconductor vendor who wants to jump into NFC world asap.
- The target market is Automotive, NFC reader, printer, and so on. Also, it will be a good solution for the mobile/smartphone market.
