Near Field Communication is still a fairly new technology, but paired with MSP430 microcontrollers, it unlocks the doors (pun intended) to a number of applications. In addition to access control, the new Field Powered NFC Reference Design (TIDA-00217) enables part authentication, personal identification, battery-less sensor interfaces, security token transfer and low-power transfer of local data.
By combining the MSP430FR5969 ultra-low-power FRAM microcontroller with the RF430CL330H dynamic NFC transponder the field generated from a cell phone is all that's needed to power up the system, let it collect data, and then send that data back to the phone. What's more, at just 25mm x 25mm and being fully programmable, this reference design is extremely flexible!
Suitable for applications with data rates up to 400 Mbps
So on your next MSP430 FRAM based design, consider adding NFC. Clearly power and size shouldn't be an issue. Learn more today!
