Callback descriptor to pass events from the NFCT driver to the upper layer.

Note

NRFX_NFCT_EVT_FIELD_DETECTED and NRFX_NFCT_EVT_FIELD_LOST are generated only on field state transitions, i.e. there will be no multiple events of the same type (out of the 2 mentioned) coming in a row.

Param p_event

[in] Pointer to the event descriptor.

Functions

nrfx_err_t nrfx_nfct_init(nrfx_nfct_config_t const *p_config)

Function for initializing the NFCT driver.

Parameters
  • p_config[in] Pointer to the NFCT driver configuration structure.

Return values
  • NRFX_SUCCESS – The NFCT driver was initialized successfully.

  • NRFX_ERROR_INVALID_STATE – The NFCT driver is already initialized.

void nrfx_nfct_uninit(void)

Function for uninitializing the NFCT driver.

After uninitialization, the instance is in disabled state.

void nrfx_nfct_enable(void)

Function for starting the NFC subsystem.

After this function completes, NFC readers are able to detect the tag.

void nrfx_nfct_disable(void)

Function for disabling the NFCT driver.

After this function returns, NFC readers are no longer able to connect to the tag.

bool nrfx_nfct_field_check(void)

Function for checking whether the external NFC field is present in the range of the tag.

Return values
  • true – The NFC field is present.

  • false – No NFC field is present.

void nrfx_nfct_rx(nrfx_nfct_data_desc_t const *p_rx_data)

Function for preparing the NFCT driver for receiving an NFC frame.

Parameters
  • p_rx_data[in] Pointer to the RX buffer.

nrfx_err_t nrfx_nfct_tx(nrfx_nfct_data_desc_t const *p_tx_data, nrf_nfct_frame_delay_mode_t delay_mode)

Function for transmitting an NFC frame.

Parameters
  • p_tx_data[in] Pointer to the TX buffer.

  • delay_mode[in] Delay mode of the NFCT frame timer.

Return values
  • NRFX_SUCCESS – The operation was successful.

  • NRFX_ERROR_INVALID_LENGTH – The TX buffer size is invalid.

  • NRFX_ERROR_BUSY – Driver is already transferring.

nrfx_err_t nrfx_nfct_bits_tx(nrfx_nfct_data_desc_t const *p_tx_data, nrf_nfct_frame_delay_mode_t delay_mode)

Function for transmitting an NFC frame with a specified number of bits.

Parameters
  • p_tx_data[in] Pointer to the TX buffer. Unlike in nrfx_nfct_tx, data_size is used as the number of bits to transmit, rather than bytes.

  • delay_mode[in] Delay mode of the NFCT frame timer.

Return values
  • NRFX_SUCCESS – The operation was successful.

  • NRFX_ERROR_INVALID_LENGTH – The TX buffer size is invalid.

  • NRFX_ERROR_BUSY – Driver is already transferring.

void nrfx_nfct_state_force(nrfx_nfct_state_t state)

Function for moving the NFCT to a new state.

Note

The HFCLK must be running before activating the NFCT with NRFX_NFCT_STATE_ACTIVATED.

Parameters
  • state[in] The required state.

void nrfx_nfct_init_substate_force(nrfx_nfct_active_state_t sub_state)

Function for moving the NFCT to a new initial substate within NRFX_NFCT_STATE_ACTIVATED.

Parameters
  • sub_state[in] The required substate.

nrfx_err_t nrfx_nfct_parameter_set(nrfx_nfct_param_t const *p_param)

Function for setting the NFC communication parameter.

Note

Parameter validation for length and acceptable values.

Parameters
  • p_param[in] Pointer to parameter descriptor.

Return values
  • NRFX_SUCCESS – The operation was successful.

  • NRFX_ERROR_INVALID_PARAM – The parameter data is invalid.

nrfx_err_t nrfx_nfct_nfcid1_default_bytes_get(uint8_t *const p_nfcid1_buff, uint32_t nfcid1_buff_len)

Function for getting default bytes for NFCID1.

Note

This function cannot be used from the non-secure code because it requires access to FICR registers.

Parameters
  • p_nfcid1_buff[inout] In: empty buffer for data; Out: buffer with the NFCID1 default data. These values can be used to fill the Type 2 Tag Internal Bytes.

  • nfcid1_buff_len[in] Length of the NFCID1 buffer.

Return values
void nrfx_nfct_autocolres_enable(void)

Function for enabling the automatic collision resolution.

As defined by the NFC Forum Digital Protocol Technical Specification (and ISO 14443-3), the automatic collision resolution is implemented in the NFCT hardware. This function allows enabling and disabling this feature.

void nrfx_nfct_autocolres_disable(void)

Function for disabling the automatic collision resolution.
