Are you interested in learning how to develop RFID/NFC firmware applications from scratch?

NFC stands for Near Field Communication. This is how we do things like wireless payment cards, subway cards, bus cards etc.

So if you are interested in learning how to develop systems such these then take a look at our Embedded NFC Complete System Development pack.

This pack will take you from knowing nothing about RFID/NFC to building a complete NFC system that includes a robust firmware and modern desktop application with cloud connectivity.

This is how we are going to accomplish that.

The pack is made up of two courses.

The first course, Embedded RFID/NFC Bare- Metal Development can be broadly divided into a theoretical part and a practical part.

Embedded RFID/NFC Bare- Metal Development

In the theoretical part we focus on the following:

Theoretical Part

  • Understanding RFID and its working principles
  • Understanding the protocols and architecture of RFID
  • Understanding the standards and regulations around RFID
  • Understanding the working principles of Near Field Communication (NFC)
  • Understanding the differences between RFID and NFC
  • Understanding the various NFC card types and their merits
  • Understanding the memory organisation and access conditions of MIFARE cards

Practical Part

In the practical part we focus on the following:

  • Developing bare-metal drivers for interfacing the MIFARE MFRC522 NFC chips with the STM32 microcontroller
  • Developing a library for handling communications between NFC cards and readers
  • Developing a firmware application for controlling devices and triggering events using NFC cards and tags.

The Second course, NFC Desktop Application focuses on developing a modern desktop application for receiving NFC card data and storing the data in the cloud.

NFC Desktop Application Development

Key sections in this course include:

Python Essential Training

This section provides practical python essential training for embedded developers. This section is for developers who are not familiar with the python programming language and those who want to brush up on their python development skills.

Python GUI Development with Kivy

This section deals with developing modern GUI desktop application using python and the Kivy framework. In this section we learn how develop complete, packaged, and installable applications from scratch. We shall apply these skills later on to develop the front end of nfc system.

Firebase Realtime Database and Authentication

In this section we shall integrate user authentication and a realtime database to store the card information in a cloud database.

Developing the NFC Desktop Application

In this final section, we shall apply all that we learned do develop the NFC desktop application.

As always, no copy/paste. We write each line code from scratch.
