STMicroelectronics – Integrated NFC reader IC includes analogue front-end


STMicroelectronics’ CR95HF is an integrated NFC reader IC which supports the ISO/IEC 14443 Type A and B, ISO/IEC 15693 (single or double sub-carrier) and ISO/IEC 18092 industry- standard NFC communication protocols.

The CR95HF includes an analogue front-end to provide the 13.56MHz air interface used by NFC devices. The CR95HF also supports the detection, reading and writing of NFC Forum Type 1, 2, 3 and 4 tags. This means that it can be used in wireless access points and gateways to enable the commissioning with a simple tap of devices with an embedded tag, such as smart light bulbs and smart heating controls.

ST supplies the X-NUCLEO-NFC03A1 NFC card reader evaluation board, based on the CR95HF-VMD5T, to enable application development with the STM32 Nucleo series of development boards.

• Optimised power management
• SPI and UART interfaces
• 528-byte FIFO command/reception buffer
