Basic NFC tag emulation.

Hi There,

 

I have recently setup a USB NFC reader (ACR122u). It supports ISO 14443 Type A and B, Mifare, FeliCa, and all 4 types of NFC (ISO/IEC 18092) tags.

 

I have written a C# application that currently reads the UID from Mifare classic cards. I know these are not supported by BB SDK right now.

 

I'm looking to create a basic app that will push a string to the reader. Probably with the ISO 14443 A or B card. Can I simulate a card and create a UID.

 

For something like this do I need to get into callbacks etc

 

I'm completely new to Blackberry development and do plan on reading a lot, just posting here to get some idea of how others are doing things.

 

Thanks,

Conor

Re: Basic NFC tag emulation.

Hello chackett,

 

The best starting point for NFC that I can recommend would be the articles outlined here:

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/NFC-Article-Index/ta-p/1538775

 

At this time, peer-to-peer NFC is not supported by the 7.0 APIs though. (Source; search Peer-to-peer)

Re: Basic NFC tag emulation.

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for clearing up the issue with Peer-to-Peer. I have been reading those articles and have finally been able to setup target emulation.

I can use the ACR122U to read and write to this card using the processCommand() function.

Thanks.
