This example will show how to use a Adafruit NFC shield to read an NFC card using the Arduberry.
- Raspberry Pi
- Adafruit NFC Shield
- NFC Cards
Slide on the Adafruit NFC shield on the Arduberry and power on the Raspberry Pi.
Download the Adafruit NFC shield I2C library on the Raspberry Pi using the Netsurf Browser and save it in /usr/share/Arduino/libraries and extract it there.
The data that is coming from the NFC shield is coming at 115200 baud, so we need to configure minicom. Open a terminal and open minicom setup
Go to Serial Port Menu and press Enter Press A to select the device and change it to /dev/ttyAMA0 and press enter to save it. Also press F to disable Hardware Flow Control. Press Enter to save the settings. Select Exit to open minicom.
