This post contains a step by step guide of how to use PN7150 with LPC55S69.
This document is structured as follows:
The PN7150 is a Plug-and-Play all-in-one NFC solution for easy integration into any OS environment like Linux and Android, reducing Bill of Material (BoM) size and cost. The embedded Arm® Cortex®-M0 microcontroller core is loaded with the integrated firmware, simplifying the implementation as all the NFC real-time constraints, protocols and the device discovery (polling loop) are processed internally. In few NCI commands, the host SW can configure the PN7150 to notify for card or peer detection and start communicating with them.
It has the following salient features:
The LPCXpresso55S69 development board provides the ideal platform for evaluation of and development with the LPC55S6x MCU based on the Arm® Cortex®-M33 architecture. The board includes a high performance onboard debug probe, audio subsystem and accelerometer, with several options for adding off-the-shelf add-on boards for networking, sensors, displays and other interfaces.
The LPCXpresso55S69 is fully supported by the MCUXpresso suite of tools, which provides device drivers, middleware and examples to allow rapid development, plus configuration tools and an optional free IDE. MCUXpresso software is compatible with tools from popular tool vendors such as Arm and IAR, and the LPCXpresso55S69 may also be used with the popular debug probes available from SEGGER and P&E Micro.
The hardware connections are simple. Both the LPC55S69-EVK board and OM5578/PN7150ARD board have an Arduino interface. So, mount the PN7150ARD board with male Arduino connector onto the female Arduino connector of the LPC55S69-EVK board.
Bring any NFC card near the PN7150 board’s antenna and the output console will show the detection and type of the card. For example, in the picture below, we can see that type 4 card was detected:
