NFC Shield is a Near Field Communication interface for Arduino, built around the popular NXP PN532 integrated circuit. NFC is a short-distance radio technology that enables communication between devices that are held close together, and traces its roots in RFID technology.  It is an open platform technology standardized in ECMA-340 and ISO/IEC 18092. NFC technology is regulated by Near Field Communication Forum which standardizes NFC communication between devices -- how they pair, share data and allow a secure transaction to happen.  NFC Forum develops and certifies device compliance with NFC standards, devices operate on ISM band of 13.56 MHz Frequency with a  range of up to about 4 inches (this is limited by the antenna and power radiation design).  NFC Shield antenna is designed to work within a range of about .5 inches, and provides all necessary circuitry for PN532.  It also beaks-out the I/O pins of PN532 for easy access. The communication between Arduino and NFC Shield is via SPI.


   Arduino Shield compatible. No soldering required, ready-to-use.
   SPI interface. Hence, most Arduino pins are available for other applications.
   Built in PCB Antenna.
   Supports both 3.3V and 5V operation using TI's TXB0104 level translator.
   Socket to connect other shields.
