Our Arduino test code only supports reading/writing tags for the moment.

This shield is designed to support I2C and SPI and UART communication (default is I2C). Our product is tested well with any classic Arduino – Diecimilla, Duemilanove, UNO, Mega R3 or later. Tinysine NFC shield is a simple, easy-to-use product to provides you a chance to learn how is works, you can add it to your Arduino projects!
