Small businesses leveraging the Windows platform will soon have access to a new PayPal Here card reader, which will include payment support for Microsoft Surface, an accompanying Windows 8.1 app and SDK. Businesses can process credit card, debit card and PayPal transactions through the Windows platform via the PayPal Here SDK and a soon-to-be-launched app. Both the app and new reader will be available in the Windows store later this year.

PayPal Here capabilities will extend to the Surface Pro 3 tablet, Lumia 830 and 635 smartphones, and other devices running Windows 8.1 software. Microsoft and PayPal also intend to collaborate with ISV partners such as Canvas and iConnectPOS to create custom business apps for the Windows SDK platform, according to a blog post written by Brad Brodigan, vice president and general manager of retail at PayPal.

Later in 2015, PayPal will release a PayPal Here reader to support EMV transactions. Short for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, this technology involves embedding computer chips into credit cards for added security.

Maxim Secure NFC microcontrollers are designed as a complete payment (EMV) solution. However, the contactless card reading interface (NFC) is more complex than other payment technologies including contact cards (Smart Cards) and magnetic strip card readers. This document provides an overview of features supported by our devices, important fundamentals, and background of Near Field Communications technology. The various terms detailed and explained herein are necessary terminology to utilize documentation and example applications provided to support development of contactless payment solutions. The physical types (Protocols) are described including EMV, MIFARE, FeliCa, Proximity, and Vicinity, important specifications, and governing bodies in the world of NFC. Detailed descriptions of available software: Examples, Communications Stacks, Libraries, and RF driver are introduced. The overall stack model is shown with physical type and RF communications detail at the bottom, building up to application code. Hardware considerations are discussed, along with software implementation details. Troubleshooting guidance and an extensive FAQ section finish out the document.

IntroductionNFC OverviewDrivers, Software and StacksHardware ConsiderationsSDK, Libraries, and Example InstallationApplication NotesTroubleshootingFAQTrademarksIntroductionThis application note provides an overview of Maxim Integrated secure microcontrollers with near field communication (NFC). While readers are expected to have some knowledge regarding NFC and contactless payment technologies, minimal background is included to clarify terms and concepts. Our secure NFC microcontrollers are designed to support payment systems, specifically Eurocard, Mastercard, Visa (EMV) contactless, and function as a reader or proximity coupling device (PCD). They do not support card emulation, which is often used by cellular phones as a payment method, such as Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, or peer-to-peer communication, such as data exchanges between two cellular phones.

Maxim's first-generation NFC reader was originally designed to support EMV version 2.6a. It also supports EMV 3.0 in most designs. Full part details are found on the MAX32560 product page. It supports EMV contactless protocol for type A and B (ISO 14443 A and B), PBM Classic (MIFARE Classic), and JIS X 6319-4 (Felica).

Maxim's next-generation NFC reader has substantially increased field power to meet demanding designs and requirements of EMV 3.0. Full part details can be found on the MAX32570 product page. It supports EMV contactless protocol for type A and B (ISO 14443 A and B, Proximity), PBM Classic (MIFARE Classic), JIS X 6319-4 (Felica), and ISO 15693 (Vicinity).

NFC commonly refers to a wide variety of products, devices, specifications, and software. Many different companies developed unique products with various communications methods that became highly fragmented. Several efforts to standardize different products into cohesive groupings have been met with some success, including ISO specifications, EMV contactless, and NFC Forum. However, many proprietary devices, communications, software applications remain outside of these groupings. NFC applications are commonly organized by device types, physical layer types, standards, and governing bodies.

In addition to the communications distance, near field antenna effects allow power delivery from the reader to the card. This means NFC cards do not need batteries or other means of self-powering like a radio or a cellular phone does. This allows the cards to function much the same way as credit cards have worked for decades. Imagine having to charge your credit cards or change their batteries before going shopping. This ability to harvest power allows the cards or tags to be simple in design and inexpensive to produce, facilitating use in a wide range of applications, including inventory management systems where thousands of tags are deployed into books, boxes, etc. This is a simplified explanation of electromagnetic theory and behaviors of near and far field antennas.

This type is referred to as vicinity, since it is designed to operate further away from the reader antenna than types A and B, also known as NFC-V. This technology is primarily used for radio frequency identification (RFID) and inventory tracking. Type V includes many different modes to allow the reader to tailor communications methods to the application. Vicinity coupled device (VCD) to vicinity IC card (VICC) uses either 100% or 10% ASK. 100% provides higher signaling amplitude for a noisy environment, while 10% allows devices far away to maintain a constant amount of power delivery. Bit encoding uses either 1 out of 256 or 1 out of 4. When activating communications, the VCD configures the VICC to use either single or dual subcarrier modulation, each with unique bit encodings and low or high data rates.

EMV also requires rigorous certification testing for both PCD and PICC devices to be compliant with the EMV contactless standard. To achieve passing EMV level 1 certification, analog, digital, and interoperability tests must all be completed successfully. Note that various card vendors, such as Visa and Mastercard, also have detailed certification tests for level 2 to validate payment vendor specific applications and procedures. Maxim's provided DTE (device test environment) example software is designed to be used during level 1 testing.

There are many other card technologies, including Calypso, GTML (e.g., type B prime or Innovatron), Topaz, Jewel, iClass, that are beyond the scope of this document. Maxim's NFC micros do not provide example code or support for these technologies or other technologies not mentioned above. Some of these can be implemented using the lowest interface levels provided by the RF driver, but support is left as an exercise to the reader and is not guaranteed.

Maxim's secure micros with NFC are primarily targeted towards payment applications and do not attempt to support all types of NFC devices and technologies. Figure 2 shows the earlier NFC type and tags chart with an overlay illustrating where the software provided by Maxim is used. This chart is intended as an overview and is not a definitive representation of the software and capabilities.

Access to the contactless radio on Maxim devices is provided by a hardware abstraction layer (HAL) referred to as the RF driver in our documentation. The RF driver provides a straightforward API to the complex underling radio hardware without loss of functionality or configurability. The RF driver handles protocol framing, AFE tuning, and low-level timing requirements. It is agnostic of the software and stacks above it, allowing use of either the included EMV level 1 (L1) stack or a 3rd party L1 stack, if desired. There is a different RF driver for the MAX32560 and MAX32570, as they have different capabilities and support some different types. However, the API they present is virtually identical.

Every potential PICC response must be validated and checked for an assortment of error conditions. Errors detected are reported to the calling software, which determines how they must be handled. The error types returned are roughly grouped as follows:

Application protocol data units (APDU) are detailed in the Contact EMV specifications. They are the border between applications and level 2 stacks, and the lower level 1 functionalities. APDUs can be either command APDUs (CAPDUs) or response APDUs (RAPDUs). Most card user guides and data sheets detail supported CAPDUs, along with the structure of expected RAPDUs. The format and decoding of these are features of level 2 software.

Maxim provides two examples for each secure NFC microcontroller. The DTE example implements the device test environment as required by and detailed in the EMV DTE specification. This is the prime example and exposes most features to the contactless radio. This is the starting point for any NFC related development for either supported micro. Each EV kit ships with a demonstration example, which is also available in the SDK. This includes software to exercise the primary EV kit functions, such as LCD, touchscreen, secure pin pad, MSR, smart card/contact EMV, and NFC. The demonstration example differs significantly from the DTE example, as it uses FreeRTOS instead of being single threaded. A different implementation of mml_nfc_pcd_port.c is provided, interfacing with the FreeRTOS API.
