The PR5331C3HN is a highly integrated transceiver module for contactless reader/writer communication at 13.56 MHz.
A dedicated ROM code is implemented to handle different RF protocols by an integrated microcontroller. The system host controller communicates with the PR5331C3HN by using the USB or the HSU link.
The protocol between the host controller and the PR5331C3HN, on top of this physical link is the CCID protocol.
PR5331C3HN supports the PCD mode for FeliCa (212 kbps and 424 kbps), ISO/IEC14443 Type A and B (from 106 kbps to 848 kbps), MIFARE (106 kbps), B' cards (106 kbps), picoPass tag (106 kbps) and Innovision Jewel cards (106 kbps)
The Initiator passive mode (from 106 kbps to 424 kbps) can be supported through the PC/SC transparent mode.
The PR5331C3HN supports a USB 2.0 full speed interface (bus powered or host powered mode).
Alternatively to the USB interface, a High Speed UART (from 9600b up to 1.2 Mb) can be used to connect the PR533 to a host.
The PR5331C3HN has also a master I²C-bus interface that allows to connect one of the following peripherals:
PR5331C3HN offers commands in order for applications to be compliant with “EMV Contactless Communication Protocol Specification V2.0.1”.
PR5331C3HN supports RF protocols ISO/IEC 14443A and B such as compliancy with Smart eID standard can be achieved at application level.
Support of USB 2.0 full speed, interoperable with USB 3.0 hubs.
The PR533C3HN in PCD mode is compliant with EMV contactless specification V2.0.1.
The PR533 is supported by the following OS through the PCSC-Lite driver:
