This project involves restarting an continuing with a project that I put to one side a few months ago. It should eventually be a lock that responds to the NFC tag implanted in my left hand. Or rather, it's the template for a number of locks.
Full disclosure: Whilst I'm documenting this all in one go, the PCB part of this was already done before Project 14 NFC/RFID started.
My goals for the project are:
I'll link to further blog posts as I make progress on the project.
|PCB design||I've already have an initial PCB design based around an MSP430FR2633 microcontroller and a TRF7970A NFC transceiver.|
|PCB testing||Does it work as I hoped it would?|
|Antenna tuning||The PCB antenna works, but can it work better? I haven't got a VNA, so need to be creative.|
|Enclosure||An enclosure to mount the reader on the wall of my garage.|
|Firmware||Hardware is nothing without the software to go with it.|
|Garage door operation||The first lock. Opening my garage door.|
|Front door operation||Opening my front door.|
