Connect NFC controller via SPI

Asked by 1Darco1 on 2016-02-04

I am using the PN532 controller breakout board by Adafruit. I have successfully connected it to my Raspberry Pi via the GPIO pins and am able to read and write e.g. MiFare Classic tags using libnfc. Now, I'd like to also try nfcpy, but I can't find any hint on how to specify the port path for nfc.ContactlessFrontend(???). /dev/spidev0.0 doesn't work and neither do any variations of that path.

There has been a similar question already, but the last comment asking about SPI remained unanswered.

Thanks!

Unfortunately there was still no time left to implement I2C or SPI communication into nfcpy. You'd need to use the UART.

Can you help with this problem?
