Android NFC PN7150 driver porting

Hi,

I'm trying to follow the porting guidelines found in:

https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN11690.pdf 

However, im firstly unclear on how to carry out the processes, im assuming I should use the adb shell to access a command line for the android device.

Next, the porting advises to enter drivers/misc, my android device has no such directory according to the adb shell, if this is not a consistent location across all devices, would anyone know how I could find out where it is. (I am currently using a OnePlus 6T, but will need to repeat the process for other brands).

Thanks,

Jibran

You cannot port it to your mobile phone.

The porting is doing on the platform SDK. i.e. the SDK of the host processor.

Hi,

Thank you for your response.

Just to clarify, do you mean that an Android Device cannot use a USB connected PN7150 NFC device OR do you mean that the drivers must be ported into the app (downloaded on the Android device from the app store for example) that would use the NFC functionality?

Thank you

Jibran

What PN7150 device are you using?

Could you tell me more detail about your issue?

I am using a mikroe 2540 usb dongle, they advised to communicate with NXP. https://www.mikroe.com/nfc-usb-dongle

My company basically has an Android application that utilises NFC, however we would like to use this NFC dongle on the Android device as an external reader, this is because the phone is too big for the tight spaces for the NFC to work, thus we need a smaller NFC reader, which is why would like to use the NFC USB dongle with PN7150.

Thankyou very much

This thread ends up sending me back to the original document. Should the code and drivers be imported into the code of the app?

I think this USB Dongle is working with your host PC. It is not working with your mobile.
