Topic: How to open NFC device


I'm new to NFC communication.

I've got a raspberry pi b+ and a NFC reader "NP532". I've been looking for hours but I can't manage to make it work. When I run "nfc-list", I've got the error message :

nfc-list uses libnfc 1.7.1
error    libnfc.driver.pn532_uart    pn53x_check_communication error
nfc-list: ERROR: Unable to open NFC device: pn532_uart:/dev/ttyAMA0

I had nearly the same message when I tried to use SPI in place of UART.

Can you tell me if I'm doing something wrong, or if I didn't look in the right place/right tutorial ?

Thanks in advance

I have the same problem, but I use and Adafruit FTDI pn532 .

Likewise, has anyone managed to get libnfc 1.7 to work with a PN532 over FTDI?
