This application is used to demonstrate SIC4310 NFC Enabler development kits developed by Silicon Craft Technology Ltd. (SIC). The NFC Enabler (SIC4310) is a dual-interface ISO14443A RFID tag, interfacing with both RF and UART. NFC Enabler is designed to be used in a various types of applications such as home appliances, personal healthcare, sport and fitness devices, etc. The key challenge is to deploy a low-cost NFC tag instead of an expensive full functional reader IC and use smartphones as a hub of information. As a result, this concept will enable a tremendous number of NFC applications on the smartphones.
See demos on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/SiliconCraft
Main features of SIC4310
- RF interface based on ISO14443A at 106 kbps
- UART interface 9600 to 115200 bps
- 8 programmable GPIOs
- Activity indicator pins (RF detection, RF busy and power ready)
- 228-byte EEPROM accessible from RF and UART
The application only supports NFC Enabler SIC4310 ICs from Silicon Craft Technology.
The demo applications are as follows.
1. GPIOs control
2. LEDs control
3. Firmware upgrade through NFC
4. LCD control
5. Temperature sensor
6. File transfer
7. SIC commands
9. Interactive poster
10. E-ink Camera
11. Room Controller
12. NDEF editor
The development kits are provided in five different forms.
1. SIC4310-MC: a 12.5 x 19.7 mm micro module with a UART interface and 4 GPIOs
2. SIC4310-USB: a 12.5 x 37.3 mm tiny module with a USB interface
3. SIC4310-HV: an energy harvesting module with a UART interface and 3 GPIOs. The on-board inductive antenna can generate a current up to 10 mA.
4. SIC4310-HVU: an energy harvesting module featuring UART and USB interfaces and two LEDs that can be controlled via GPIO pins. The on-board inductive antenna can generate a current up to 10 mA.
5. SIC4310-FU: 47.6 x 107.9 mm ready-to-use kit featuring ARM Cortex M0 MCU, SIC4310, LCD, inductive antenna, two function buttons, temperature sensor, and connectors (I2C, SPI, UART, programming and debugging)
6. SIC4310-SP: a customizing board as e-ink, springboard etc.
