The NFC RFID USB Stick enables reading and writing of NFC cards and tags as well as NFC P2P communication.
The stick is produced by Digital Logic LTD. It is build upon the NXP PN533 chip according to manufacturers recommendations and guidelines. NXP’s PN533 supports the full range of the NFC Forum specifications and standards.
This product is fully supported by the open source library LibNFC, which makes it a good starting point for development of NFC RFID applications on various platforms.
Using LibNFC libraries and examples is well explained on LibNFC community and forums.
LibNFC is open source project, has a big community and is developed continuously.
- Read RFID NFC-Tags: Read contents of NFC-tags like most of MIFARE® cards, FeliCa, Topaz.
- Write RFID NFC-Tags: Write contents to NFC-Tags (URLs, SMS, Phone No, vCards, MIME types…).
- Card emulation: Emulate Type 2 and Type 4 NFC tags, which can be read by other NFC-devices.P2P communication: Use the device for active NFC-based P2P communication to transfer data between NFC capable devices.
This RFID device is delivered without any binary driver. Using LibUSB and LibNFC you can compile drivers for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
Using compiled driver you can further explore LibNFC C API and continue developing your own software.
On Windows platform you can use the official NXP Drivers for the PN533 based products.
