The engineers at the TechnoCentrum at Radboud University Nijmegen were kind enough to spend some valuable time tuning this board, and put together an excellent app note on the tuning process. If you're interested in designing a board with an integrated antenna you may find some helpful information in PN532 Antenna Design.
