The board features an integrated high performance antenna, is supported by libnfc and offers a flexible SPI interface.


  • High performance full NFC compliant expansion board compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model A, B, B+, Pi 2 and Pi 3
  • Based on NXP PN512 full NFC forum compliant NFC IC, meeting compliance with all 3 NFC modes (Reader, P2P and Card Emulation)
  • Flexible interface selection (SPI or I²C), software currently supports SPI
  • Integrated high performance antenna
  • Complete with MIFARE RFID card

The PN512 is a highly integrated transceiver IC for contactless communication at 13.56 MHz. This transceiver IC utilizes an outstanding modulation and demodulation concept completely integrated for different kinds of contactless communication methods and protocols at 13.56 MHz. Enabled in Reader/Writer mode for ISO/IEC 14443A/MIFARE, the PN512’s internal transmitter part is able to drive a reader/writer antenna designed to communicate with ISO/IEC 14443A/ MIFARE cards and transponders without additional active circuitry. The receiver part provides a robust and efficient implementation of a demodulation and decoding circuitry for signals from ISO/IEC 14443A/MIFARE compatible cards and transponders. The digital part handles the complete ISO/IEC 14443A framing and error detection (Parity & CRC).
