The TRF7970AEVM is a self-contained development platform which can be used to evaluate the performance of NFC Transceiver TRF7970A. TRF7970A is a multi-protocol fully integrated 13.56Mhz NFC/RFID Transceiver IC. Along with the IC, the evaluation module is designed to enable development and evaluation of custom firmware, customer designed antennas and potential transponders for a variety of NFC/RFID applications.


The TRF7970A EVM features include:

  • NFC Modes (RFID Reader\Writer, Peer to Peer and Card Emulation)
  • ISO15693 standard based transponders
  • ISO14443 standard based transponders (Types A&B)
  • FeliCa based transponders (UID read only)
  • Standalone Polling Mode for quick demonstration of transponder detection
  • Communication with Host Software Graphical User Interface (GUI) via USB VCP

  • The TRF7970A EVM also has the following hardware features specifically for development purposes:

  • MSP430F2370 Ultra-Low Power microcontroller with JTAG connectivity to development environment for custom firmware development.
  • Parallel or SPI connectivity via zero ohm jumpers
  • Logic Analyzer/Oscilloscope test points for relevant signal observation during code development
  • SMA (edge mount and through-hole) pads for connecting customer designed antenna.

  • What's Included

  • Sample bag of ISO15693 transponders
  • TRF7970AEVM
