If you're using the shield, check the next page
The PN532 chip and breakout is designed to be used by 3.3V systems. To use it with a 5V system such as an Arduino, a level shifter is required to convert the high voltages into 3.3V. If you have a 3.3V embedded system you won't have to use the shifter of course!
To begin, we'll solder in the header to the breakout board. You'll need two small 3-pin pieces of header and one 8-pin piece. You can break these off of a large piece.
- Arduino digital pin 2 is connected to 4050 pin 9 (orange wire)
- Arduino digital pin 3 is connected to 4050 pin 11(yellow wire)
- Arduino digital pin 4 is connected to 4050 pin 14 (green wire)
On the breakout board
- 3.3Vin is connected to the Arduino 3.3V pn
- SCK is connected to 4050 pin 10 (orange wire)
- MISO is connected to Arduino pin 5 (blue wire)
- MOSI is connected to 4050 pin 12 (yellow wire)
- SSEL is connected to 4050 pin 15& (green wire)
- GND connects to Arduino ground (black wire)
Also connect 4050 pin #1 to 3.3V and pin #8 to ground.

That's it! Later on you can change what Arduino pins you are using but for the beginning test we suggest matching our wiring.
