[NFC] How to connect TRF7970A NFC device to any of the OMAP development platforms (like Beagleboard, OMAP3XX EVM, OMAP4 Panda board etc)?

Hi,

Does anybody know how to connect TRF7970A NFC device or any other NFC controller  to any of the OMAP development platforms (like Beagleboard, OMAP3XX EVM, OMAP4 Panda board etc)?

The main requirement is to study in detail about the porting of non NXP NFC controller hardware on Android and NFC HCI interface. I am only interested in evaluation modules which have connectivity over serial bus protocols like SPI/UART/I2C etc and this requirement rules out TRF7970A Evaluation Module (EVM), which provides connectivity over USB.

Please comment on the below queries.

1. Availability of add on card/module based on TRF7970A NFC controller that can be connected to any of the available OMAP platforms over serial protocol bus like SPI/UART/I2C.

2. Is it possible to glue wire and take out SPI connection between the TRF7970A NFC controller and MSP430F2370 micro controller, so that TRF7970A can be connected to any OMAP evaluation boards.

Regards,

Sreenath
