The Melexis MLX90132 is a 13.56MHz, fully integrated and multi-protocol NFC transceiver IC.
It has been designed to support a large scope of protocols enabling the NFC functionality.
The MLX90132 supports:
- Reader/Writer mode: to read-out NFC tags compliant to the technologies NFC-A, NFC-B, NFC-F and ISO/IEC15693
- Card emulation mode: to emulate NFC tags compliant to the technologies NFC-A, NFC-B and NFC-F
- Peer-to-Peer mode: to communicate with NFC compliant active devices (e.g. smartphones)
The dual driver architecture of the MLX90132 requires minimal numbers of external components and allows the transmitter to provide up to 300 milliwatts RF power to an appropriate antenna load. This delivered power is suitable for most short to mid-range applications.
Thanks to its embedded Field and Tag detectors, the MLX90132 features a very low-power consumption, reducing to a minimum the power dissipation of the final application. The MLX90132 also features an electromagnetic disturbance (EMD) algorithm, improving the performances in Reader/Writer or Peer-to-Peer modes.
The MLX90132 is packaged in a 5x5mm QFN package and is rated for operation over -40 to +105 °C. It is manufactured and qualified according to the AEC-Q100 automotive standard.
