Tusa Board

Tusa is a quick, easy, low cost yet effective option to start developing with the new NXP CLRC663 RFID/NFC transceiver IC. CLRC663 is a highly integrated transceiver IC for contactless communication at 13.56 MHz featuring:

  • High Power RF front-end IC operating at 3.3 V and 5 V
  • Fully ISO/IEC 14443 A & B, ISO/IEC 15693 and FeliCa compliant
  • ISO/NFC 18092 NFC-IP1 Peer-to-Peer support (Initiator Mode)
  • High Baud Rates (up to 848 kbits)
  • Low Power Card Detection

Schematics and gerber files are available online freely after registration.


Tusa Board Key Features

Two software development environments are supported:
NXP LPCXpresso
NXP mbed
Software Development - LPCXpresso
LPCXpresso™ is a new, low-cost development platform available from NXP. It supports NXP's ARM-based LPC microcontrollers. The platform is comprised of a simplified Eclipse-based IDE and low-cost target boards which include an attached JTAG debugger.
The LPCXpresso target boards, jointly developed by NXP, Code Red, and Embedded Artists, include an integrated JTAG debugger, so there's no need for a separate JTAG debug probe.
The Tusa daughterboard fits on LPCXpresso target boards.
Software Development - mbed
mbed microcontrollers, a series of microcontrollers development boards designed for fast, flexible and low-risk and professional rapid prototyping.
Packaged as a small 40-pin 0.1" DIP form-factor convenient for prototyping with solderless breadboard, stripboard, and through-hole PCBs.
Include a built-in USB programming interface that is as simple as using a USB Flash Drive. Plug it in, drop on an ARM program binary, and its up and running!
Online IDE, accessible with browser - The mbed Compiler provides a lightweight online C/C++ IDE that is pre-configured to let you quickly write programs and compile and download them to run on your mbed microcontroller.
Tusa can be attached to mbed microcontrollers to enable development of RFID/NFC application on mbed platform
