The NXP analog product development boards provide an easy-to-use platform for evaluating
NXP products. The boards support a range of analog, mixed-signal and power solutions.
They incorporate monolithic integrated circuits and system-in-package devices that use
proven high-volume technology. NXP products offer longer battery life, a smaller form
factor, reduced component counts, lower cost, and improved performance in powering
This page will guide you through the process of setting up and using the TEA2017DK1002
In addition to the kit contents, the following hardware is necessary or beneficial when
working with this kit.

Get to Know the Hardware
2.1 Board Features
This board can be used for programming small series of TEA2017 and/or TEA2016 samples.
Place the jumper on the board in the position that corresponds with the IC to be
programmed. By connecting both the 3pin and 6pin connector to the USB-I2C
programming interface, regular production samples and development samples can be
programmed after selecting the correct channel with the switch on the USB-I2C
Adding an IC socket (not included) makes the programming board suitable for programming
small series of ICs. By connecting both 3-pin and 6-pin cables, TEA2016AAT and
TEA2016AAT dev samples can be programmed by selecting the correct channel by the switch
on the USB-I2C interface.
2.2 Board Description
The TEA2017AAT digital architecture is based on a high-speed configurable hardware state
machine ensuring very reliable real-time performance.
Several parameters can easily be configured during evaluation with use of the Graphical
User Interface (GUI):
Operating frequencies to be outside the audible area at all operating modes
Soft start and soft stop in burst mode, reducing the audible noise
Accurate transition levels between operation modes (high-power mode/low-power
Enabling/disabling the lower power mode
TEA2017AAT samples can be easily programmed using the TEA20xx_SOCKET_DB1586 board in
connection with the TEA2016DB1514v2 demo kit and the GUI.
2.3 Board Components
TEA2017 Programming board (SO16 socket)
Configure the Hardware
Both TEA2017AAT and TEA2017AATdev samples can be programmed by means of the
TEA20xx_Socket_DB1586 board + I2C interface (RDK01DB1563). The selector switch on the
I2C interface must be set in the right position prior to programming TEA2017AAT or
TEA2017AATdev samples. The TEA20xx_Socket_DB1586 board also contains a jumper to enable
programming of TEA2016 samples.
Hotels around the world have, for decades, used cards with magnetic stripes as room keys.
They’re inexpensive and easy to issue, but they have serious limitations when it comes to
security, interoperability and ease of use. They can be erased, leaving guests locked out and are
vulnerable to being copied or forged, which can lead to unwanted consequences.
Two newcomers to the field – Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
– give hotels an alternative to mag-stripes and, at the same time, make it easier to meet
guest demand to use smartphones and other devices as access credentials. NFC and BLE offer the
benefits of mobile integration and an enhanced guest experience, with greater convenience and
security and also enable new services.
NFC and BLE are compatible technologies that can coexist in the same components, so
implementations can be very flexible. For the time being, BLE is supported by more mobile devices,
but this is changing. NFC, which is based on widespread contactless smartcard technology, is on
the rise. It’s designed for higher security and uses protocols that are form-factor
independent. Also, since NFC is the predominant technology for public transport, shared mobility
and various other applications, it offers options for extending the capabilities of hotel keys.
What this adds up to, is increased use of NFC for hotel cards, driven by three things:
NFC is designed to support multiple applications in one card or device, so a single card or device
can be used to open doors, make payments, earn loyalty points, rent a bike, access a rental car,
access local public transport and more. Hotels can enhance guest experiences through more
services, and can pursue cross-branding opportunities to expand their offering. Since NFC-based
cards and devices can be configured multiple times, for different purposes, add-ons can be earned
through rewards programs or paid subscription, and the card system itself can accommodate new
features and functions over time.
NFC cards, smartphones and wearables can all be processed by infrastructure devices, such as
locks, in the same way. This facilitates the coexistence of different form factors, making the
integration of a loyalty card or a mobile device much simpler. Instead of dealing with multiple
technologies, solution providers and hotel operators can focus on their main objective —
guest satisfaction. The wristband or smartphone app can be configured for partner services, for
discounts at local restaurants, shops, museums, amusement parks, sporting venues and other
attractions. Location services can be added, too, so families and groups don’t get lost,
even in large resorts.
Because NFC is based on contactless smartcard technology, it’s designed for scalable
security. NFC cards and devices support a wide range of globally accepted countermeasures against
Mutual Authentication is used to establish a trusted communication channel between the
lock and the card or device.
Message Authentication Code protects each message in a communication.
Data Encryption is used to protect data on the contactless interface from
Through the support of state-of-the-art cryptographic algorithms, like 3DES and AES, guests and
their valuables are protected with the same high level of security that banks use to protect
The NXP approach
As the global innovation leader for secure connections, NXP supports both technologies –
NFC and BLE – and supports secure, convenient, and cost-effective usage of both
technologies. For example, our MIFARE family, which is fully compatible with NFC, offers
high quality solutions for guest cards and loyalty cards.
MIFARE Ultralight EV1
The most cost-effective solution for limited-use applications.
MIFRAE Ultralight C
Designed as a limited-use, high-volume IC, it uses the open 3DES cryptographic standard for
chip authentication and data access, and provides entry-level security for key storage and
MIFARE Plus SE
This latest version of MIFARE, which is a competitive alternative for existing MIFARE Classic
systems, makes it possible to increase security in systems that are already in use.
MIFARE DESFire EV1 256B
MIFARE DESFire EV1 is the global benchmark for multi-application solutions, and this upcoming
entry-level version offers a wide range of available applications, including integration with
banking cards and mobile cards.
Our extensive portfolio of NFC-compliant devices enables migration to newer technologies. We
support standardized, generic data structures and protocols. The products most often used in
hospitality are the PN512, CLRC663 and CLRC630.
With the family, NXP has a competitive offering for BLE integration. Targeting applications like
wearables, IoT and smart home, QN9000 devices are designed for ultra-low power consumption and
high sensitivity and use a system-on-chip (SoC) design to enable high levels of integration.
