Need help with PN7462 configuration

Hello guys,

In my current project, I'm using PN7462 module from NXP. I need that module for the following:

1. To communicate with NFC card

2. To communicate with GSM module via UART interface. I need to have 1.8V level UART communication with GSM unit. Configuration commands for GSM should be sent from PN7462 to GSM. 

3. To control a few of the GPIO signals.

I'm reading PN7462 datasheet but I'm not sure I can digest it in a way to properly design my board. Would you guys be so kind to help me with the following:

1. How to supply the PN7462 module? Which power pins do I need to connect to power supply? How to achieve 1.8V for UART and GPIOs?

2. How to download the firmware on PN7462? Using SWD interface ?

3. How to properly design the antenna circuit for NFC communication. Is there any antenna chip available on the market or I need to print it on a PCB?

Thank you very much for your time and effort. Really appreciate it.

Looking forward to reading from you.

Sincerely,

Bojan.

Hi Bojan,

Please kindly refer to the following for details.

1. How to supply the PN7462 module? Which power pins do I need to connect to power supply? How to achieve 1.8V for UART and GPIOs?

-PVDD is used for pad voltage reference and supply of the host interface (HSU, USB, I2C, and SPI) and the GPIOs. so if you use PNEV7462B , you may connect PVDD to an external power, please also note in such kind of case, If PVDD is externally supplied,  the Jumper 42 (PVDD_OUT) needs to be set. By setting  this Jumper the PVDD_OUT is shorted to GND and the PN7462AU turns off the PVDD  LDO.

2. How to download the firmware on PN7462? Using SWD interface ?

-Yes, exactly.

3. How to properly design the antenna circuit for NFC communication. Is there any antenna chip available on the market or I need to print it on a PCB?

- You may find all you need from the following link: http://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN11706.pdf 

and yes, PN7462's HSUART just supports slave mode, so you have to use GPIOs to simulate a UART interface by software. Sorry for the inconvenience that might cause.

Hope that helps,


Have a great day,
Kan

Hi guys,

By reading a PN7462 datasheet, I noticed that it has a high-speed UART which can operate in slave mode only. What actually does that means?

Will I be able to control GSM module through that HSUART in a way to send AT commands from PN7462 and to read the response of GSM module?

Thanks,

Bojan
