Due to the rising price of NXP PN5321 IC, we have no choice but adjust the price of this board accordingly.
To balance the price of this PN532 board, here comes a new version which is much cheaper:
NFC is a popular technology in recent years. We often heard this work while smart phone company such as Samsung or HTC introduces their latest high-end phones. Almost all the high-end phone in the market support NFC.
Near field communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smart phones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimeters.
For electronics geeks, we also want to use NFC technology to make our own things. So we build this NFC RFID module. This module is built around NXP PN532. NXP PN532 is very popular in NFC area. And the company offers much technology document to help developers. We developed this module based on the official document. And to make things easier, we also build library for this module.
This module is an updated version from PN532 NFC RFID module V3 kits.
Please note: V4 is completely compatible with V3 on hardware and software. V4 keeps exactly the same shape, installing holes and interface as V3.
Due to improved PCBA design and assembly technology, PN532 NFC V4 performs much better than V3.
