Wireless NFC Reader - µFR Nano Online

About

NFC Reader module with WiFi (TCP/IP, HTTP, UDP), BLE (Serial, HID, BLE), UART TTL, RS232, USB, RTC (Real Time Clock), I/O, and optional external EEPROM.

Wireless NFC Reader “µFR Nano Online” is a cross-platform NFC Reader/Writer based on Digital Logic’s proprietary API and communication protocol, combined with an ESP32 system on a chip microcontroller.

ESP32 add-on hardware makes the “uFR Nano Online” a unique new product in our portfolio featuring NFC Reader/Writer with USB, RS232 (UART TTL), WiFi, and BLE connectivity, RTC (Real Time Clock), optional external EEPROM, user-controllable beeper and RGB LEDs, 4 pin IO Port (2 pins for input/output, 1 pin for input only and 1 pin for output only) and one UART port for connecting an additional uFR Nano RS232 NFC Reader.

All this fits in a single compact housing with only 86 x 27 x 10 mm dimensions.

Who is it for?

µFR Nano Online Reader/Writer is primarily intended for development companies and individuals (professionals and hobbyists) for further applications and turnkey solutions development. It is mainly implemented in projects that require Wi-Fi, or BLE communication. GPIO pins allow interaction with other electronic devices. Besides, the reader supports running custom firmware (ESP-IDF or Arduino), convenient for clients who intend to build stand-alone NFC solutions. For this reason, it comes with a fully-featured Software Development Kit, including firmware, libraries, source code examples, and documentation for various platforms, operating systems, and development environments. We launch upgrades frequently (including firmware, libraries, and API), all available to download at our official website for FREE.

In addition to all mentioned above, our free, extensive, and fast-responsive support brings Wireless NFC Reader/ Writer µFR Nano Online to a unique position in this industry sector.

Hardware

µFR Nano Online is a wireless NFC reader based on ISO14443 A/B and ISO18092 standards.
The device hardware is comprised of two main boards, each providing its own set of features and functionality:

  • µFR Nano NFC Reader
  • ESP32 add-on board.

Since the µFR Nano hardware is one of the integrated parts of this device, µFR Nano Online also uses the entire SDK package like all other devices of the µFR series.

SDK includes:

  • SDK in multiple programming languages
  • Cross-platform libraries
  • NFC tag emulation
  • Digital Signing support
  • Working with MIFARE cards (Classic, Ultralight, Ultralight C, DESFire, DESFire Lite, Plus), NTAG2xx, NTAG DNA, JCOP (Java Cards)
  • Firmware, library, and software SDK upgrades
  • Browser extensions (Chrome, Firefox, and Opera)
  • Etc.

ESP32 add-on board provides:

  • Additional communication types such as Wi-Fi (UDP, TCP, HTTP, Web Socket), BLE (BLE, Serial, and HID)
  • External device communication ports such as configurable GPIO (6 pins) and UART TTL
  • RTC (Real Time Clock), and battery for RTC
  • 2 RGB LEDs
  • optional EEPROM
  • Enabled storing software code inside the device
  • IDF and Arduino code support

With outstanding modulation and demodulation concepts, and many integrated 13.56 MHz contactless communication protocols, this device implementation becomes reliable and simple for every RFID NFC solution developer.

Card/Tag Support

Both hardware and software, are fully developed, tested, and successfully implemented with the following card/tag types:

  • MIFARE Mini®,
  • MIFARE Classic® (1K, 4K, EV1),
  • MIFARE Ultralight®,
  • MIFARE Ultralight C®,
  • MIFARE Plus® (2K, 4K),
  • MIFARE DESFire® (Light, 2K, 4K, 8K, EV1, EV2),
  • NXP NTAG® 21x (210, 213, 215, 216, Tag Tamper),
  • NXP NTAG® 4xx DNA (413, 424),
  • NXP JCOP® Java Card (J3A040, J3A081, J3H145, JC30M48CR).

Additionally, this tool supports all other tags compatible with the listed above.

Furthermore, the configurable GPIO (4 pins) and UART of the µFR Nano Online device enable the additional NFC Readers to connect. The device may also be upgraded with an external EEPROM and RTC (Real Time Clock).

Even though the supported technologies list is already comprehensive, our development team constantly works on product improvements and upgrades, staying in line with this technology's global trends. 

Hardware Compatibility

µFR Nano Online is fully compatible with other µFR Series devices. This allows a quick and easy upgrade of all ongoing projects based on other µFR Series devices. Therefore, developers do not need to modify previously written code to integrate it with new hardware. Likewise, the new API set for network connectivity is extremely intuitive and easy to implement.

The introduction of ESP32 support allows users to write their ESP32 code in an Arduino-like IDE, and to create a completely stand-alone working device capable to operate autonomously.

Supported operating modes

  • Transparent mode – The device acts like a regular NFC reader and communicates with a host (PC, mobile…) via USB cable
  • Slave mode – The device acts as a regular NFC reader but communicates with a host (PC, mobile…) via Wi-Fi or Ethernet
  • Master mode – Standalone mode. The device sends all scanned card information to a predefined server address via the HTTP POST method. It doesn’t require a host (PC, mobile…). It requires, only a stable network connection (Wi-Fi or Ethernet)
  • BLE Serial – The device acts as a regular NFC reader but communicates via BLE Serial protocol with a host (PC, mobile, etc)
  • BLE – Device acts as a regular NFC reader but communicates via BLE Low Energy protocol with a host (PC, mobile, etc)
  • BLE HID – Device acts as a keyboard emulation device (for example a barcode reader). It sends card UID to a paired device’s text input field.

Software Development Kit

This RFID NFC reader comes with a fully-featured Software Development Kit with external libraries, examples with source codes, documentation about API references, communication protocol, and many useful software tools.
 

Libraries are cross-compiled for various platforms and so far support:

  • Windows x86/x64
  • Windows ARM/UWP
  • Linux x86/x64
  • Linux ARM/ARM64/ARMHF
  • macOS x64
  • iOS x64
  • Android
  • Arduino
  • ESP32.

Our team is ready to develop additional libraries on client requests. The request realization speed depends on our current project plans and eventual partnership agreement.

All examples are written for all major developing platforms and languages, such as:

Our team is ready to develop additional  SDK examples in other programming languages on client requests. The request realization speed depends on our current project plans and eventual partnership agreement.

The package includes a set of very useful SDK source code software and executable apps. Some of these are:

  • MIFARE Classic® (1k, 4k, EV1) cards and tags programming software
  • MIFARE® DESFire® (Light, 2k, 4k, 8k, EV1, EV2) cards and tags programming software
  • MIFARE PLUS® (2k, 4k) cards and tags programming software
