NXP PN5180

NXP Semiconductors PN5180 - High-Performance, Full NFC Forum-Compliant Frontend

Offering high output power, Dynamic Power Control (DPC), multiple power-saving features, this advanced, multi-protocol NFC frontend delivers efficient, robust, and reliable operation, even in harsh conditions. The PN5180 is supported by advanced design tools that make it easier than ever to develop and finalize a design. OM25180FDK is a flexible and easy to use frontend development kit for PN5180, It contains a PNEV5180B board with different antennas and antenna matching PCBs as well as an NFC sample card samples in HVQFN package.

Development is further supported by the NFC Cockpit, an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), streamlines development by separating the tasks associated with hardware and software. For example, it supports software-independent tuning of the antenna’s register settings, so hardware designers can optimize antenna parameters while software designers work on other aspects of the system.
