Notice: These device addresses are used for writing to the respective device, for reading bit0 must be set (see I2C protocol). Thus, the actual device address is >> 1.

This register survives power-off, but does not seem to be saved to non-volatile storage (does not survive battery pulls). This register doesn't seem to actually control MCU behaviour by itself, it just seems to be used for storing arbitrary data.|

|Raw I2C register address||Internal register address||Width||Description|
|0x0||0x0||0x40||RHR / THR (data receive/send FIFO)|
See the datasheet linked to on the Hardware page for reference. From that datasheet, for the structure of the I2C register address u8: "Bit 0 is not used, bits 2:1 select the channel, bits 6:3 select one of the UART internal registers. Bit 7 is not used with the I2C-bus interface, but it is used by the SPI interface to indicate a read or a write operation."
Since the *Raw commands are used with this, this device has no I2C registers. Instead, raw data is transfered after the I2C device is selected. Hence, WriteDeviceRaw is used for sending commands to the controller, while ReadDeviceRaw is for receiving responses from the controller. Certain commands may return multiple command responses.
Command request / response structure:
|0x1||0x1||Command source / destination.|
Following the above header is the payload data(when payload size is non-zero), with the size specified in the header. The command response payload is usually at least 1-byte, where that byte appears to be normally 0x0. For command requests the payload data is the command parameters.
For command requests sent to the NFC tag itself, Cmd=0x0 and CmdID=0x0. The command request payload data here is the actual command request data for the NFC tag, starting with the CmdID u8 at payload+0.
During NFC module startup, a certain command is sent to the controller which eventually(after various cmd-reply headers etc) returns the following the payload after the first byte in the payload:
000000: 44 65 63 20 32 32 20 32 30 31 32 31 34 3a 35 33 Dec 22 201214:53 000010: 3a 35 30 01 05 0d 46 05 1b 79 20 07 32 30 37 39 :50...F..y .2079 000020: 31 42 35 1B5
Or that is: "Dec 22 201214:53:50<binary>20791B5". Therefore, this appears to return the part-number of the NFC controller(other command request(s) / response(s) use this part-number value too).
