NFC ‘e-BoB’ Gateway
Practically every modern smartphone has an NFC interface which allows it, for example, to read RFID tags or exchange data with another NFC device. Our NFC gateway in e-BoB style lets you explore the capabilities of your own smartphone, but that is not all: the built-in tag IC lets you read and write data using simple commands over a serial interface, with the help of an ATmega328 acting as the bridge.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
