Playground Bluefruit + NFC

by kinkadius on Mon Jun 07, 2021 7:33 pm

The Adafruit Playground Bluefruit uses the Nordic NRF52840 SoC, which contains support for bluetooth/wifi as well as NFC.

Is it correct to assume that the "Micro NFC/RFID Transponder - NTAG203 13.56MHz" can be used to access NFC features on Adafruit Playground Bluefruit? Here's a link to the product in mind:

Has anybody tried this on the bluefruit board before? Do I require any other hardware if NFC is supported on the NRF52840?

The nRF52840 has firmware and radios that can handle NFC, but you'd still need an antenna coil. None of our nRF52840 boards can do NFC.

Can I use this for the antenna coil below, then connect to GPIO to use?

No, that's an NFC tag, not an NFC reader.
