Development board for CR95HF , Documentation purpose only

The PLUG-CR95HF-B includes a CR95HF contactless transceiver, a 47 x 34 mm 13.56 MHz inductive etched antenna and its associated tuning components.

The user must connect a host to the board through the UART or the SPI connector. It allows to control the 13.56 MHz CR95HF multi-protocol transceiver IC from the host.

The CR95HF acts as a slave. The host can configure the transceiver and send SPI or UART commands.

The PLUG-CR95HF-B board is powered through the VPS pin.
