Product Details

LinkSprite’s NFC (Near Field Communication) shield is a NFC shield for Arduino built around the popular NXP PN532 integrated circuit.

NFC is a short-distance radio technology that enables communication between devices that are held close to each other. It is widely used similar to RFID to recognize cards/tags (NXP Mifare cards /tags). NFC can be used as an alternative to Travelcard using the read/write memory provided in cards/tags.


  • Compatible with Arduino shield (No soldering required)
  • SPI interface. Hence, most Arduino pins are available for other applications
  • Built in PCB Antenna
  • Supports both 3.3V and 5V operation using TI's TXB0104 level translator
  • Socket to connect with other shields
  • The maximum communication range of this NFC shield is about 5 cm
  • Not being able to read/write Mifare’s Ultralight C chip, only to read it’s ID

Application Ideals:

  • Use as a RFID reader with Mifare One tags (ISO14443 Type-A) and cards (13.56 MHZ)
  • Build visiting card sharing systems
  • Build attendance systems
  • Design authentication systems
  • Read Smart Posters
  • Securely exchange small data with other NFC devices
  • Use with Arduino ADK Main Board for creating mobile NFC applications
  • Many other applications

Package Includes:

  • 1 x NFC Shield for Arduino
