Design files

Overview

This reference design, featuring the TRF79xxA paired with an MSP microcontroller, is a fully-functional, battery-operad RFID & NFC reader. This design features in-depth details on how to add NFC/RFID capabilities to an existing design by adding a simple circuit and small firmware control logic loops.

Features
  • Ultra-Low Power consumption for battery-operated applications
  • Includes PC-side GUI for full evaluation
  • Leverages 13.56MHz NFC/RFID TRF7970A Transceiver IC, which can be leveraged worldwide
  • Includes complete HW and SW design files, with test data
  • This reference design can use almost any MSP430. Only a parallel or SPI interface is required to interface between the TRF7970A transceiver and MSP430 MCU.
  • This reference design can be ordered (TRF7970AEVM)
