Utilizing the SunFounder PN532 NFC RFID Module Kit to control physical access to a building. The Azure Sphere supports universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) for serial communication. The UART provides the ability to send and receive data over a serial port to a peripheral device. The SunFounder peripheral was selected to show utilization of low cost RFC/RFID sensor (less than $12.00 US).   The NFC tag is a passive data stores which can be read by the PN532 device.  The PN ...
