Does imp005 breakout board support RFID?

We are trying to do something with RFID technology with Electric Imp. So, does imp005 breakout board support RFID? If yes, does it already have RFID antenna and receiver?

If not, please suggest a RFID tag and receiver for imp005 breakout board.

It doesn’t support RFID/NFC natively, but it’s straightforward to add an NFC module via SPI. And we have a library that that supports the NXP PN532 to help you.

There’s also a more specific library that provides support for the NXP MiFare Classic.

I wanted to use this RFID, do we have any library of electric imp? Or can we use the same NXP PN532 and NXP MiFare Classic library code for this above RFID?

The RFID you link to appears to be an NXP MFRC522, so it’s from the same company as the PN532. They ought to be similar, but you’d need to try it out to be sure of that.

We don’t have a library for the MFRC522 (all of our hardware libraries are listed here), and I don’t believe there are any plans to produce one (though that would change if a customer requested assistance with this). That said, even if the PN532 library doesn’t work with the MFRC522 fully, it should give you a good basis to begin creating code for the latter.
