MFRC522 doesn't detect Mifare classic cards

Question asked by André Venzon on May 10, 2018

We developed an RFID module based on the Mifare RC522 (Mifare RFID Reader/Writer 13.56MHz RC522 SPI [3901] : Sunrom Electronics/Technologies). The schematic of the circuit is shown below. We have taken some measures and we can highlight those carried out in points 1, 2 and 3.  We noticed that the signal was attenuated. So I would like to know if this could have happened due to a possible difference in the MFRC522 registers or due to the physical characteristics of the antenna design (our antenna is a bit bigger, which can generate a difference in antenna impedances).
