Designed for today’s compact systems, our NFC controller solutions enable higher integration with fewer components, since they combine an NFC frontend with an advanced 32-bit microcontroller. Options include integrated firmware, for an easy, standardized interface, or a freely programmable microcontroller with the ability to load fully-custom applications.

NFC Controller with Integrated Firmware

With help of our NFC controllers with integrated firmware, designers working in Linux, Windows, or Android environments can get a head start on their system. The PN71xx family (PN7120, PN7150) are plug-n play NFC and come pre-loaded with embedded NFC firmware and use the NFC Forum’s NCI interface, which is required for designs that use a full OS. As a consequence, designers can focus on system optimization and differentiation.


NFC Controller with Customizable Firmware

For designers who want to use their own, privately-developed software, we offer NFC controller with customizable firmware such as the PN7462 family. Powered by a 32 bit ARM Cortex M0 core, PN7462 is a state-of-the-art reader solution on a single chip with contact, contactless, NFC interfaces and full MIFARE family support, which makes it easy to create a fully tailored, one of a kind application.



  • Broad product portfolio, from readers with integrated and customizable firmware
  • Multi-protocol support e.g. ISO/IEC 14443 A & B, ISO/IEC 15693, FeliCa, ISO/NFC 18092, NFC-IP1 peer-to-peer (Passive Initiator Mode)
  • Support of all smart card standards as well as NFC devices and NFC tags
  • Easy to design in through dedicated development boards and SW libraries

Target Applications

  • NFC-enabled access control for hospitality, corporate access or private access management
  • Secure identification
  • Gaming accessories
  • Home gateways
  • Set-top boxes

Software Support
