PN532 RFID/NFC not working with Arduino Uno wifi ver. 2

by Chakthy on Mon Jan 28, 2019 1:12 pm

I have tested the Adafruit RFID/ NFC shield with the Arduino uno and works without problems. Once I get it installed on the Arduino Uno Wifi ver. 2 there is no communication with the board. It goes through the !versiondata and sends the message "Didn't find PN53x board ". I'm using the same example code from Adafruit. Is there a different pin assignment between boards causing the communication failure?

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
#include <Wire.h>
#include <SPI.h>
#include <Adafruit_PN532.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

// If using the breakout with SPI, define the pins for SPI communication.
#define PN532_SCK  (2)
#define PN532_MOSI (3)
#define PN532_SS   (4)
#define PN532_MISO (5)

// If using the breakout or shield with I2C, define just the pins connected
// to the IRQ and reset lines.  Use the values below (2, 3) for the shield!
#define PN532_IRQ   (2)
#define PN532_RESET (3)  // Not connected by default on the NFC Shield

// Uncomment just _one_ line below depending on how your breakout or shield
// is connected to the Arduino:

// Use this line for a breakout with a software SPI connection (recommended):
//Adafruit_PN532 nfc(PN532_SCK, PN532_MISO, PN532_MOSI, PN532_SS);

// Use this line for a breakout with a hardware SPI connection.  Note that
// the PN532 SCK, MOSI, and MISO pins need to be connected to the Arduino's
// hardware SPI SCK, MOSI, and MISO pins.  On an Arduino Uno these are
// SCK = 13, MOSI = 11, MISO = 12.  The SS line can be any digital IO pin.
//Adafruit_PN532 nfc(PN532_SS);

// Or use this line for a breakout or shield with an I2C connection:
Adafruit_PN532 nfc(PN532_IRQ, PN532_RESET);

#if defined(ARDUINO_ARCH_SAMD)
// for Zero, output on USB Serial console, remove line below if using programming port to program the Zero!
// also change #define in Adafruit_PN532.cpp library file
   #define Serial SerialUSB
#endif

void setup(void) {
  #ifndef ESP8266
    while (!Serial); // for Leonardo/Micro/Zero

  Serial.begin(115200);
  Serial.println("Hello!");

  nfc.begin();

  uint32_t versiondata = nfc.getFirmwareVersion();
   Serial.print(versiondata);

Sounds like something on that board is not compliant with the UNO. Try contacting Arduino to find out if they have a library for that device or recommendation for a workaround.
