1. General description
NTAG I2C - The entry to the NFC world: simple and lowest cost.
The NTAG I2C is the first product of NXP’s NTAG family offering both contactless and
contact interfaces (see Figure 1). In addition to the passive NFC Forum compliant
contactless interface, the IC features an I2C contact interface, which can communicate
with a microcontroller if the NTAG I2C is powered from an external power supply. An
additional externally powered SRAM mapped into the memory allows a fast data transfer
between the RF and I2C interfaces and vice versa, without the write cycle limitations of the
EEPROM memory.
The NTAG I2C product features a configurable field detection pin, which provides a trigger
to an external device depending on the activities at the RF interface.
The NTAG I2C product can also supply power to external (low power) devices (e.g. a
microcontroller) via the embedded energy harvesting circuitry.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
8. Functional description
8.1 Block description
NTAG I2C ICs consist of (see details below): 2016 bytes of EEPROM memory, 64 Bytes of
SRAM, a RF interface, Digital Control Unit (DCU), Power Management Unit (PMU) and an
I²C interface. Energy and data are transferred via an antenna consisting of a coil with a
few turns, which is directly connected to NTAG I2C IC.
• RF interface:
– modulator/demodulator
– rectifier
– clock regenerator
– Power-On Reset (POR)
– voltage regulator
• Anticollision: multiple cards may be selected and managed in sequence
• Command interpreter: processes memory access commands supported by the NTAG
I2C
• EEPROM interface
8.2 RF interface
The RF-interface is based on the ISO/IEC 14443 Type A standard.
This RF interface is passive and therefore requires to be supplied by an RF field (e.g. NFC
enabled device) at all times to be able to operate. It is not operating even if the NTAG I2C
is powered via its contact interface (Vcc).
Data transmission from the RF interface is only happening if RF field from an NFC
enabled device is available and adequate commands are sent to retrieve data from the
NTAG I2C.
For both directions of data communication, there is one start bit (start of communication)
at the beginning of each frame. Each byte is transmitted with an odd parity bit at the end.
The LSB of the byte with the lowest address of the selected block is transmitted first.
The maximum length of an NFC device to tag frame used in this product is 82 bits (7 data
bytes + 2 CRC bytes = 7×9 + 2×9 + 1 start bit).
The maximum length of a tag to NFC device frame (response to READ command) is 163
bits (16 data bytes + 2 CRC bytes = 16  9 + 2  9 + 1 start bit).
In addition the proprietary FAST_READ command has a variable response frame length,
which depends on the start and end address parameters. E.g. when reading the SRAM at
once the length of the response is 595 bits (64 data bytes + 2 CRC bytes = 64  9 + 2  9
+ 1 start bit). The overall maximum supported response frame length for FAST READ is
up to 9235 bits (1024 data bytes + 2 CRC bytes = 1024  9 + 2  9 + 1 start bit), but here
the maximum frame length supported by the NFC device must be taken into account
when issuing this command.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
For a multi-byte parameter, the least significant byte is always transmitted first. For
example, when reading from the memory using the READ command, byte 0 from the
addressed block is transmitted first, followed by bytes 1 to byte 3 out of this block. The
same sequence continues for the next block and all subsequent blocks.
8.2.1 Data integrity
The following mechanisms are implemented in the contactless communication link
between the NFC device and the NTAG I²C IC to ensure very reliable data transmission:
•
•
•
•
•
16 bits CRC per block
Parity bits for each byte
Bit count checking
Bit coding to distinguish between “1”, “0” and “no information”
Channel monitoring (protocol sequence and bit stream analysis)
The commands are initiated by the NFC device and controlled by the Digital Control Unit
of the NTAG I2C IC. The command response depends on the state of the IC, and for
memory operations, also on the access conditions valid for the corresponding page.

Fig 5.
RF communication principle of NTAG I2C
The overall RF communication principle is summarized in Figure 5.
8.2.2.1
IDLE state
After a power-on reset (POR), the NTAG I2C switches to the IDLE state. It only exits this
state when a REQA or a WUPA command is received from the NFC device. Any other
data received while in this state is interpreted as an error, and the NTAG I2C remains in
the IDLE state.
After a correctly executed HLTA command e.g., out of the ACTIVE state, the default
waiting state changes from the IDLE state to the HALT state. This state can then only be
exited with a WUPA command.
8.2.2.2
READY 1 state
In the READY 1 state, the NFC device resolves the first part of the UID (3 bytes) using the
ANTICOLLISION or SELECT commands in cascade level 1. This state is correctly exited
after execution of the following command:
• SELECT command from cascade level 1: the NFC device switches the NTAG I2C into
READY2 state where the second part of the UID is resolved.

NXP Semiconductors
NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
8.2.2.3
READY 2 state
In the READY 2 state, the NTAG I2C supports the NFC device in resolving the second part
of its UID (4 bytes) with the cascade level 2 ANTICOLLISION command. This state is
usually exited using the cascade level 2 SELECT command.
Remark: The response of the NTAG I2C to the SELECT command is the Select
AcKnowledge (SAK) byte. In accordance with ISO/IEC 14443, this byte indicates if the
anticollision cascade procedure has finished. If finished, the NTAG I2C is now uniquely
selected and only this device will communicate with the NFC device even when other
contactless devices are present in the NFC device field.
8.2.2.4
ACTIVE state
All memory operations are operated in the ACTIVE state.
The ACTIVE state is exited with the HLTA command and upon reception, the NTAG I2C
transits to the HALT state. Any other data received when the device is in this state is
interpreted as an error. Depending on its previous state, the NTAG I2C returns to either to
the IDLE state or HALT state.
8.2.2.5
HALT state
HALT and IDLE states constitute the two wait states implemented in the NTAG I2C. An
already processed NTAG I2C can be set into the HALT state using the HLTA command. In
the anticollision phase, this state helps the NFC device distinguish between processed
tags and tags yet to be selected. The NTAG I2C can only exit this state upon execution of
the WUPA command. Any other data received when the device is in this state is
interpreted as an error, and NTAG I2C state remains unchanged.
8.3 Memory organization
The memory map is detailed in Table 4 (1k memory) and Table 5 (2k memory) from the
RF interface and in Table 6 (1k memory) and Table 7 (2k memory) from the I2C interface.
The SRAM memory is not mapped from the RF interface, because in the default settings
of the NTAG I2C the Pass-through mode is not enabled. Please refer to Section 11 for
examples of memory map from the RF interface with SRAM mapping.
The structure of manufacturing data, static lock bytes, capability container and user
memory pages (except of the user memory length) are compatible with other NTAG
products.
Any memory access which starts at a valid address and extends into an invalid access
region will return 00h value in the invalid region.
8.3.1 Memory map from RF interface
Memory access from the RF interface is organized in pages of 4 bytes each.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
8.3.3 EEPROM
The EEPROM is a non volatile memory that stores the 7 byte UID, the memory lock
conditions, IC configuration information and the 1904 bytes user data (888 byte user data
in case of the NTAG I2C 1k version).
8.3.4 SRAM
For frequently changing data, a volatile memory of 64 bytes with unlimited endurance is
built in. The 64 bytes are mapped in a similar way as done in the EEPROM, i.e., 64 bytes
are seen as 16 pages of 4 bytes.
The SRAM is only available if the tag is powered via the VCC pin.
The SRAM is located at the end of the memory space and it is always directly accessible
by the I2C host (addresses F8h to FBh). An RF reader cannot access the SRAM memory
in normal mode (i.e., outside the Pass-through mode). The SRAM is only accessible by
the RF reader if the SRAM is mirrored onto the EEPROM memory space.
With Memory Mirror enabled (SRAM_MIRROR_ON_OFF = 1b - see Section 11.2), the
SRAM can be mirrored in the User Memory (page 1 to page 116 - see Section 11.2) for
access from the RF side.
The Memory mirror must be enabled once both interfaces are ON as this feature is
disabled after each POR.
The register SRAM_MIRROR_BLOCK (see Table 14) indicates the address of the first
page of the SRAM buffer. In the case where the SRAM mirror is enabled and the READ
command is addressing blocks where the SRAM mirror is located, the SRAM mirror byte
values will be returned instead of the EEPROM byte values. Similarly, if the tag is not VCC
powered, the SRAM mirror is disabled and reading out the bytes related to the SRAM
mirror position would return the values from the EEPROM.
In the Pass-through mode (PTHRU_ON_OFF = 1b - see Section 8.3.11), the SRAM is
mirrored to the fixed address 240 - 255 for RF access (see Section 11) in the first memory
sector for NTAG I2C 1k and in the second memory sector for NTAG I2C 2k.
8.3.5 UID/serial number
The unique 7-byte serial number (UID) is programmed into the first 7 bytes of memory
covering page addresses 00h and 01h - see Figure 6. These bytes are programmed and
write protected in the production test.
SN0 holds the Manufacturer ID for NXP Semiconductors (04h) in accordance with
ISO/IEC 14443-3.

8.3.6 Static lock bytes
The bits of byte 2 and byte 3 of page 02h (via RF) or byte 10 and 11 address 0h (via I2C)
represent the field programmable, read-only locking mechanism (see Figure 7). Each
page from 03h (CC) to 0Fh can be individually locked by setting the corresponding locking
bit Lx to logic 1 to prevent further write access. After locking, the corresponding page
becomes read-only memory.
The three least significant bits of lock byte 0 are the block-locking bits. Bit 2 controls
pages 0Ah to 0Fh (via RF), bit 1 controls pages 04h to 09h (via RF) and bit 0 controls
page 03h (CC). Once the block-locking bits are set, the locking configuration for the
corresponding memory area is frozen.

Static lock bytes 0 and 1
For example, if BL15-10 is set to logic 1, then bits L15 to L10 (lock byte 1, bit[7:2]) can no
longer be changed. The static locking and block-locking bits are set by the bytes 2 and 3
of the WRITE command to page 02h. The contents of the lock bytes are bit-wise OR’ed
and the result then becomes the new content of the lock bytes.
This process is irreversible from RF perspective. If a bit is set to logic 1, it cannot be
changed back to logic 0. From I²C perspective, the bits can be reset to 0b by writing bytes
10 and 11 of block 0. I²C address is coded in byte 0 of block 0 and may be changed
unintentionally.
The contents of bytes 0 and 1 of page 02h are unaffected by the corresponding data bytes
of the WRITE.
The default value of the static lock bytes is 00 00h.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
8.3.7 Dynamic Lock Bytes
To lock the pages of NTAG I2C starting at page address 10h and onwards, the dynamic
lock bytes are used. The dynamic lock bytes are located at page E2h sector 0 (NTAG I2C
1k) or address E0h sector 1 (NTAG I2C 2k). The three lock bytes cover the memory area
of 830 data bytes (NTAG I2C 1k) or 1846 data bytes (NTAG I2C 2k). The granularity is 16
pages for NTAG I2C 1k (see Figure 8) and 32 pages for NTAG I2C 2k (see Figure 9)
compared to a single page for the first 48 bytes (see Figure 7).
Remark: Set all bits marked with RFUI to 0 when writing to the dynamic lock bytes.

NTAG I2C 2k Dynamic lock bytes 0, 1 and 2
The default value of the dynamic lock bytes is 00 00 00h. The value of Byte 3 is always
00h when read.
Reading the 3 bytes for the dynamic lock bytes and the Byte 3 (00h) from RF interface
(address E2h sector 0 (NTAG I2C 1k) or E0h sector 1 (NTAG I2C 2k) or from I2C (address
38h (NTAG I2C 1k) or 78h (NTAG I2C 2k)) will also return a fixed value for the next 12
bytes of 00h.
Like for the static lock bytes, this process of modifying the dynamic lock bytes is
irreversible from RF perspective. If a bit is set to logic 1, it cannot be changed back to
logic 0. From I²C perspective, the bits can be reset to 0b.

8.3.8 Capability Container (CC bytes)
The Capability Container CC (page 03h) is programmed during the IC production
according to the NFC Forum Type 2 Tag specification (see Ref. 1). These bytes may be
bit-wise modified by a WRITE command from the I²C or RF interface. Once set to 1b, it is
only possible to reset it to 0b from I²C perspective. I²C address (byte 0) and static lock
bytes (byte 10 and byte 11) are coded in block 0 and may be changed unintentionally.

8.3.11 NTAG I2C configuration and session registers
NTAG I2C functionalities can be configured and read in two separate locations depending
if the configurations shall be effective within the communication session (session
registers) or by default after Power On Reset (POR) (configuration bits).
The configuration registers of pages E8h to E9h (sector 0 - see Table 10, or 1 - see
Table 11, depending if it is for NTAG I²C 1k or 2k) via the RF interface or block 3Ah or 7Ah
(depending if it is for NTAG I²C 1k or 2k) via the I2C interface are used to configure the
default functionalities of the NTAG I2C. Those bit values are stored in the EEPROM and
represent the default settings to be effective after POR. Their values can be read & written
by both interfaces when applicable and when not locked by the register lock bits (see
REG_LOCK in Table 13).

Both the session and the configuration bits have the same register except the
REG_LOCK bits, which are only available in the configuration bits and the NS_REG bits
which are only available in the session registers. After POR, the configuration bits are
loaded into the session registers. During the communication session, the values can be
changed, but the related effect will only be visible within the communication session for
the session registers or after POR for the configuration bits. After POR, the registers
values will be again brought back to the default configuration values.
All registers and configuration default values, access conditions and descriptions are
defined in Table 13 and Table 14.
Reading and writing the session registers via I²C can only be done via the READ and
WRITE registers operation - see Section 9.8.

8.4 Configurable Field Detection Pin
The field detection feature provides the capability to trigger an external device (e.g.
Controller) or switch on the connected circuitry by an external power management unit
depending on activities on the RF interface.
The conditions for the activation of the field detection signal (FD_ON) can be:
• The presence of the RF field
• The detection of a valid command (Start of Communication)
• The selection of the IC.
The conditions for the de-activation of the field detection signal (FD_OFF) can be:
• The absence of the RF field
• The detection of the HALT state
• The RF interface has read the last part of the NDEF message defined with
LAST_NDEF_BLOCK
All the various combinations of configurations are described in Table 13 and illustrated in
Figure 12, Figure 13 and Figure 14 for all various combination of the filed detection signal
configuration.
The field detection pin can also be used as a handshake mechanism in the Pass-through
mode to signal to the external microcontroller if
• New data are written to SRAM on the RF interface
• Data written to SRAM from the microcontroller are read via the RF interface.
See Section 11 for more information on this handshake mechanism.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
8.5 Watchdog timer
In order to allow the I²C interface to perform all necessary commands (READ, WRITE...),
the memory access remains locked to the I²C interface until the register I2C_LOCKED is
cleared by the host - see Table 14.
In order however to avoid that the memory stays 'locked' to the I²C for a long period of
time, it is possible to program a watchdog timer to unlock the I2C host from the tag, so that
the RF reader can access the tag after a period of time of inactivity. The host itself will not
be notified of this event directly, but the NS_REG register is updated accordingly (the
register bit I2C_LOCKED will be cleared - see Table 14).
The default value is set to 20 ms (848h), but the watch dog timer can be freely set from
0001h (9.43 s) up to FFFFh (617.995 ms). The timer starts ticking when the
communication between the NTAG I2C and the I2C interface starts. In case the
communication with the I2C is still going on after the watchdog timer expires, the
communication will continue until the communication has completed. Then the status
register I2C_LOCKED will be immediately cleared.
In the case where the communication with the I2C interface has completed before the end
of the timer and the status register I2C_LOCKED was not cleared by the host, it will be
cleared at the end of the watchdog timer.
The watchdog timer is only effective if the VCC pin is powered and will be reset and
stopped if the NTAG I2C is not VCC powered or if the register status I2C_LOCKED is set
to 0b and RF_LOCKED is set to 1b.
8.6 Energy harvesting
The NTAG I2C provides the capability to supply external low power devices with energy
generated from the RF field of a NFC device.
The voltage and current from the energy harvesting depend on various parameters, such
as the strength of the RF field, the tag antenna size, or the distance from the NFC device.
At room temperature, NTAG I2C could provide typically 5 mA at 2 V on the VOUT pin with
an NFC Phone.
Operating NTAG I2C in energy harvesting mode requires a number of precautions:
• A significant capacitor is needed to guarantee operation during RF communication.
The total capacitor between VOUT and GND shall be in the range of 150nF to 200 nF.
• If NTAG I2C also powers the I2C bus, then VCC must be connected to VOUT, and
pull-up resistors on the SCL and SDA pins must be sized to control SCL and SDA sink
current when those lines are pulled low by NTAG I2C or the I2C host
• If NTAG I2C also powers the Field Detect bus, then the pull-up resistor on the Field
Detect line must be sized to control the sink current into the Field Detect pin when
NTAG I2C pulls it low
• The NFC reader device communicating with NTAG I2C shall apply polling cycles
including an RF Field Off condition of at least 5.1 ms as defined in NFC Forum Activity
specification (see Ref. 4, chapter 6).
Note that increasing the output current on the Vout decreases the RF communication
range.

Fig 15. I2C bus protocol
The NTAG I2C supports the I2C protocol. This protocol is summarized in Figure 15. Any
device that sends data onto the bus is defined as a transmitter, and any device that reads
the data from the bus is defined as a receiver. The device that controls the data transfer is
known as the “bus master”, and the other as the “slave” device. A data transfer can only
be initiated by the bus master, which will also provide the serial clock for synchronization.
The NTAG I2C is always a slave in all communications.
9.1 Start condition
Start is identified by a falling edge of Serial Data (SDA), while Serial Clock (SCL) is stable
in the high state. A Start condition must precede any data transfer command. The NTAG
I2C continuously monitors SDA (except during a Write cycle) and SCL for a Start
condition, and will not respond unless one is given.
9.2 Stop condition
Stop is identified by a rising edge of SDA while SCL is stable and driven high. A Stop
condition terminates communication between the NTAG I2C and the bus master. A Stop
condition at the end of a Write command triggers the internal Write cycle.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
9.3 Soft reset feature
In the case where the I2C interface is constantly powered on, NTAG I2C can trigger a reset
of the I2C interface via its soft reset feature- see Table 13.
When this feature is enabled, if the microcontroller does not issue a stop condition
between two start conditions, this situation will trigger a reset of the I2C interface and
hence may hamper the communication via the I2C interface.
9.4 Acknowledge bit (ACK)
The acknowledge bit is used to indicate a successful byte transfer. The bus transmitter,
whether it is the bus master or slave device, releases Serial Data (SDA) after sending
eight bits of data. During the 9th clock pulse period, the receiver pulls Serial Data (SDA)
low to acknowledge the receipt of the eight data bits.
9.5 Data input
During data input, the NTAG I2C samples SDA on the rising edge of SCL. For correct
device operation, SDA must be stable during the rising edge of SCL, and the SDA signal
must change only when SCL is driven low.
9.6 Addressing
To start communication between a bus master and the NTAG I2C slave device, the bus
master must initiate a Start condition. Following this initiation, the bus master sends the
device address. The NTAG I2C address from I2C consists of a 7-bit device identifier (see
Table 15 for default value).
The 8th bit is the Read/Write bit (RW). This bit is set to 1 for Read and 0 for Write
operations.
If a match occurs on the device address, the NTAG I2C gives an acknowledgment on SDA
during the 9th bit time. If the NTAG I2C does not match the device select code, it deselects
itself from the bus and clear the register I2C_LOCKED (see Table 12).

from the RF or I²C interface to this byte will only return 04h (manufacturer ID for NXP
Semiconductors - see Figure 6).

The READ and WRITE operation handle always 16 bytes to be read or written (one block
- see Table 7)
For the READ operation (see Figure 16), following a Start condition, the bus master/host
sends the NTAG I2C slave address code (SA - 7 bits) with the Read/Write bit (RW) reset to
0. The NTAG I2C acknowledges this (A), and waits for one address byte (MEMA), which
should correspond to the address of the block of memory (SRAM or EEPROM) that is
intended to be read. The NTAG I2C responds to a valid address byte with an acknowledge
(A). A Stop condition can be then issued. Then the host again issues a start condition
followed by the NTAG I2C slave address with the Read/Write bit set to 1b. When
I2C_CLOCK_STR is set to 0b, a pause of at least 50 s shall be kept before this start
condition. The NTAG I2C acknowledges this (A) and sends the first byte of data read
(D0).The bus master/host acknowledges it (A) and the NTAG I2C will subsequently
transmit the following 15 bytes of memory read with an acknowledge from the host after
every byte. After the last byte of memory data has been transmitted by the NTAG I2C, the
bus master/host will acknowledge it and issue a Stop condition.
For the WRITE operation (see Figure 16), following a Start condition, the bus master/host
sends the NTAG I2C slave address code (SA - 7 bits) with the Read/Write bit (RW) reset to
0. The NTAG I2C acknowledges this (A), and waits for one address byte (MEMA), which
should correspond to the address of the block of memory (SRAM or EEPROM) that is
intended to be written. The NTAG I2C responds to a valid address byte with an
acknowledge (A) and, in the case of a WRITE operation, the bus master/host starts
transmitting each 16 bytes (D0...D15) that shall be written at the specified address with an
acknowledge of the NTAG I²C after each byte (A). After the last byte acknowledge from
the NTAG I²C, the bus master/host issues a Stop condition.
The memory address accessible via the READ and WRITE operations can only
correspond to the EEPROM or SRAM (respectively 00h to 3Ah or F8h to FBh for NTAG
I²C 1k and 00h to 7Ah or F8h to FBh for NTAG I²C 2k).

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
For the READ register operation, following a Start condition the bus master/host sends the
NTAG I²C slave address code (SA - 7 bits) with the Read/Write bit (RW) reset to 0. The
NTAG I2C acknowledges this (A), and waits for one address byte (MEMA) which
corresponds to the address of the block of memory with the session register bytes (FEh).
The NTAG I2C responds to the address byte with an acknowledge (A). Then the bus
master/host issues a register address (REGA), which corresponds to the address of the
targeted byte inside the block FEh (00h, 01h...to 07h) and then waits for the Stop
condition.
Then the bus master/host again issues a start condition followed by the NTAG I²C slave
address with the Read/Write bit set to 1b. The NTAG I²C acknowledges this (A), and
sends the selected byte of session register data (REGDAT) within the block FEh. The bus
master/host will acknowledge it and issue a Stop condition.
For the WRITE register operation, following a Start condition, the bus master/host sends
the NTAG I²C slave address code (SA - 7 bits) with the Read/Write bit (RW) reset to 0.
The NTAG I2C acknowledges this (A), and waits for one address byte (MEMA), which
corresponds to the address of the block of memory within the session register bytes
(FEh). After the NTAG I2C acknowledge (A), the bus master/host issues a register
address (REGA), which corresponds to the address of the targeted byte inside the block
FEh (00h, 01h...to 07h). After acknowledgement (A) by NTAG I2C, the bus master/host
issues a MASK byte that defines exactly which bits shall be modified by a 1b bit value at
the corresponding bit position. Following the NTAG I²C acknowledge (A), the new register
data (one byte - REGDAT) to be written is transmitted by the bus master/host. The NTAG
I²C acknowledges it (A), and the bus master/host issues a stop condition.

“start bit”) and the end of communication (one logic 0 + 1 bit length of unmodulated
carrier). An NFC tag data frame contains the start of communication (1 “start bit”) and the
end of communication (1 bit length of no subcarrier).
The minimum command response time is specified according to Ref. 1 as an integer n,
which specifies the NFC device to NFC tag frame delay time. The frame delay time from
NFC tag to NFC device is at least 87 s. The maximum command response time is
specified as a time-out value. Depending on the command, the TACK value specified for
command responses defines the NFC device to NFC tag frame delay time. It does it for
either the 4-bit ACK value specified or for a data frame.
All timing can be measured according to the ISO/IEC 14443-3 frame specification as
shown for the Frame Delay Time in Figure 18. For more details refer to Ref. 2.

Remark: The ATQA coding in bits 7 and 8 indicate the UID size according to
ISO/IEC 14443 independent from the settings of the UID usage.
Remark: The bit numbering in the ISO/IEC 14443 specification starts with LSB = bit 1 and
not with LSB = bit 0. So 1 byte counts bit 1 to bit 8 instead of bit 0 to bit 7.
10.5 GET_VERSION
The GET_VERSION command is used to retrieve information about the NTAG family, the
product version, storage size and other product data required to identify the specific NTAG
I2C.
This command is also available on other NTAG products to have a common way of
identifying products across platforms and evolution steps.
The GET_VERSION command has no arguments and returns the version information for
the specific NTAG I2C type. The command structure is shown in Figure 19 and Table 20.

The most significant 7 bits of the storage size byte are interpreted as an unsigned integer
value n. As a result, it codes the total available user memory size as 2n. If the least
significant bit is 0b, the user memory size is exactly 2n. If the least significant bit is 1b, the
user memory size is between 2n and 2n+1.
The user memory for NTAG I²C 1k is 888 bytes. This memory size is between 512 bytes
and 1024 bytes. Therefore, the most significant 7 bits of the value 13h, are interpreted as
9d, and the least significant bit is 1b.
The user memory for NTAG I²C 2k is 1904 bytes. This memory size is between 1024
bytes and 2048 bytes. Therefore, the most significant 7 bits of the value 15h, are
interpreted as 10d, and the least significant bit is 1b.
10.6 READ
The READ command requires a start page address, and returns the 16 bytes of four
NTAG I2C pages. For example, if address (Addr) is 03h then pages 03h, 04h, 05h, 06h are
returned. Special conditions apply if the READ command address is near the end of the
accessible memory area. For details on those cases and the command structure refer to
Figure 20 and Table 23.

In the initial state of NTAG I2C, all memory pages are allowed as Addr parameter to the
READ command:
• Page address from 00h to E2h and E8h for NTAG I²C 1k
• Page address from 00h to FFh (sector 0), from page 00h to E0h and E8h (sector 1) for
NTAG I²C 2k
• SRAM buffer address when Pass-through mode is enabled
Addressing a start memory page beyond the limits above results in a NAK response from
NTAG I2C.
In case a READ command addressing start with a valid memory area but extends over an
invalid memory area, the content of the invalid memory area will be reported as 00h.
10.7 FAST_READ
The FAST_READ command requires a start page address and an end page address and
returns all n*4 bytes of the addressed pages. For example, if the start address is 03h and
the end address is 07h, then pages 03h, 04h, 05h, 06h and 07h are returned.
For details on those cases and the command structure, refer to Figure 21 and Table 25.

10.9 SECTOR SELECT
The SECTOR SELECT command consists of two commands packet: the first one is the
SECTOR SELECT command (C2h), FFh and CRC. Upon an ACK answer from the Tag,
the second command packet needs to be issued with the related sector address to be
accessed and 3 bytes RFU.
To successfully access to the requested memory sector, the tag shall issue a passive
ACK, which is sending NO REPLY for more than 1ms after the CRC of the second
command set.
The SECTOR SELECT command is shown in Figure 23 and Table 29.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
11. Communication and arbitration between RF and I²C interface
If both interfaces are powered by their corresponding source, only one interface shall
have access according to the "first-come, first-serve" principle.
In NS_REG, the two status bits I2C_LOCKED and RF_LOCKED reflect the status of the
NTAG I²C memory access and indicate which interface is locking the memory access. At
power on, both bits are 0, setting the arbitration in idle mode.
In the case arbiter locks to the I²C interface, an RF reader still can access the session
registers. If the ISO state machine is in ACTIVE state, only the SECTOR SELECT
command is allowed. But any other command requiring EEPROM access like READ or
WRITE is handled as an illegal command and replied to with a special NAK value.
In the case where the memory access is locked to the RF interface, the I²C host still can
access the NFC register, by issuing a 'Register READ/WRITE' command. All other read or
write commands will be replied to with a NACK to the I²C host.
11.1 Non-Pass-through mode
PTHRU_ON_OFF = 0b (see Table 14) indicates non-Pass-through mode.
11.1.1 I²C interface access
If the tag is in the IDLE or HALT state (RF state after POR or HALT-command) and the
correct I²C slave address of NTAG I²C is specified following the START condition, the bit
I2C_LOCKED will be automatically set to 1b. If I2C_LOCKED = 1b, the I²C interface has
access to the tag memory and the tag will respond with a NACK to any memory
READ/WRITE command on the RF interface other than reading the register bytes
command during this time.
I2C_LOCKED must be either reset to 0b at the end of the I²C sequence or wait until the
end of the watch dog timer.
11.1.2 RF interface access
The arbitration will allow the RF interface read and write accesses to EEPROM only when
I2C_LOCKED is set to 0b.
RF_LOCKED is automatically set to 1b if the tag receives a valid command (EEPROM
Access Commands) on the RF interface. If RF_LOCKED = 1b, the tag is locked to the RF
interface and will not respond to any command from the I²C interface other than READ
register command (see Table 14).
RF_LOCKED is automatically set to 0b in one of the following conditions
• At POR or if the RF field is switched off
• If the tag is set to the HALT state with a HALT command on the RF interface
• If the memory access command is finished on the RF interface
When the RF interface has read the last page of the NDEF message specified in
LAST_NDEF_BLOCK (see Table 13 and Table 14) the bit NDEF_DATA_READ - in the
register NS_REG see Table 14 - is set to 1b and indicates to the I²C interface that, for
example, new NDEF data can be written.

11.2 SRAM buffer mapping with Memory Mirror enabled
With SRAM_MIRROR_ON_OFF= 1b, the SRAM buffer mirroring is enabled. This mode
cannot be combined with the Pass-through mode (see Section 11.3).
With the memory mirror enabled, the SRAM is now mapped into the user memory from
the RF interface perspective using the SRAM mirror lower page address specified in
SRAM_MIRROR_BLOCK byte (Table 13 and Table 14). See Table 31 (NTAG I²C 1k) and
Table 32 (NTAG I²C 2k) for an illustration of this SRAM memory mapping when
SRAM_MIRROR_BLOCK is set to 01h. The SRAM buffer will be then available in two
locations: inside the user memory and at the end of the first or second memory sector
(respectively NTAG I²C 1k or NTAG I²C 2k).
The tag must be VCC powered to make this mode work, because without VCC, the SRAM
will not be accessible via RF powered only.
When mapping the SRAM buffer to the user memory, the user shall be aware that all data
written into the SRAM part of the user memory will be lost once the NTAG I²C is no longer
powered from the I²C side (as SRAM is a volatile memory).

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
11.3 Pass-through mode
PTHRU_ON_OFF = 1b (see Table 14) enables and indicates Pass-through mode.
To handle large amount of data transfer from one interface to the other, NTAG I²C offers
the Pass-through mode where data is transferred via a 64 byte SRAM buffer. This buffer
offers fast write access and unlimited write endurance as well as an easy handshake
mechanism between the two interfaces.
This buffer is mapped directly at the end of the sector 0 (NTAG I²C 1k) or sector 1 (NTAG
I²C 2k) of the memory (from the RF interface perspective).
In both cases, the principle of access to the SRAM buffer via the RF and I²C interface is
exactly the same (see Section 11.3.2 and Section 11.3.3).
The data flow direction must be set with the PTHRU_DIR bit (see Table 14) within the
current communication session with the session registers (in this case, it can only be set
via the I²C interfaces) or for the configuration bits after POR (in this case both RF and I²C
interface can set it). This Pass-through direction settings avoids locking the memory
access during the data transfer from one interface to the SRAM buffer.
The Pass-through mode can only be enabled via I²C interface when both interfaces are
powered. The PTHRU_ON_OFF bit, located in the session registers NC_REG (see
Section 8.3.11), needs to be set to 1b. In case one interface powers off, the Pass-through
mode is disabled automatically.
11.3.1 SRAM buffer mapping
In Pass-through mode, the SRAM is mirrored to pages F0h to FFh sector 0 for the NTAG
I²C 1k - see Table 33 - or sector 1 for the NTAG I²C 2k - see Table 34 - outside the user
memory.
The last page/block of the SRAM buffer (page 16) is used as the terminator page. Once
the terminator page/block in the respective interfaces is read/written, the control would be
transferred to other interface (RF/I²C) - see Section 11.3.2 and Section 11.3.3 for more
details.
Accordingly, the application can align on the Reader & Host side to transfer 16/32/48/64
bytes of data in one Pass-through step by only using the last blocks/page of the SRAM
buffer.
When using FAST_READ to read the SRAM buffer from RF, the EndAddr input of the
FAST_READ command has to be always set to FFh.

NTAG I2C - Energy harvesting Type 2 Tag with I2C interface
11.3.2 RF to I²C Data transfer
If the RF interface is enabled (RF_LOCKED = 1b) and data is written to the terminator
block/page of the SRAM via the RF interface, at the end of the WRITE command, bit
SRAM_I2C_READY is set to 1b and bit RF_LOCKED is set to 0b automatically, and the
NTAG I²C is locked to the I²C interface.
To signal to the host that data is ready to be read following mechanisms are in place:
• The host polls/reads bit SRAM_I2C_READY from NS_REG (see Table 14) to know if
data is ready in SRAM
• A trigger on the FD pin indicates to the host that data is ready to be read from SRAM.
This feature can be enabled by programming bits 5:2 (FD_OFF, FD_ON) of the
NC_REG appropriately (see Table 13)
This is illustrated in the Figure 24.
If the tag is addressed with the correct I²C slave address, the I2C_LOCKED bit is
automatically set to 1b (according to the interface arbitration). After a READ from the
terminator page of the SRAM, bit SRAM_I2C_READY and bit I2C_LOCKED are
automatically reset to 0b, and the tag returns to the arbitration idle mode where, for
example, further data from the RF interface can be transferred.

The RF_LOCKED bit is then automatically set to 1b (according to the interface
arbitration). After a READ or FAST_READ command involving the terminator block/page
of the SRAM, bit SRAM_RF_READY and bit RF_LOCKED are automatically reset to 0b
allowing the I²C interface to further write data into the SRAM buffer.
To signal to the host that further data is ready to be written, the following mechanisms are
in place:
