NFC expands to many different markets and applications, from access, payment, ticketing, industrial, gaming, retail, metering, appliances, healthcare and many more. control applications. Each NFC application has very different requirements them in terms of RF protocols, performance, reading distance, security requirements, etc. For this reason, there is no single design that fits all applications. Therefore, it is important to understand the application requirements in order to design the approp ...
Demo A new feature, called Dynamic Power Control (DPC), controls antenna current, RF power, and the related waveforms to deliver optimized RF performance, even under detuned conditions. It maximizes transmitter current during detuned conditions and thereby compensates for any negative effects generated by nearby metal, cards, or phones.   Features Optimizes NFC performance under detuned conditions Assures performance for all payment form factors Key feature of the PN5180 NFC frontend so ...
This post entry provides a detailed description of how a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) pairing solution via NFC was developed using two of our reference development boards: The NTAG I2C plus kit for Arduino pinout The Freedom KW41Z board. This document has been structured as follows: NFC for easy one-tap pairing solutionNFC solutions to implement secure simple pairingNFC static pairing with NTAG 213 NFC dynamic pairing with NTAG I2C plus Hardware setupKinetis KW41Z NTAG I2C plus kit for Ar ...
Near Field Communication (NFC) is hot. It is available in hundreds of millions of smartphones, tablets, and other consumer electronics, and enters more and more the industrial space as well.This article shows how to implement the demos of our "Industrial NFC Demonstrator", first exhibited at embedded world 2017 in Nürnberg.       Parameterization & Diagnosis This demo shows how you can use an NFC phone to parameterize/configure a DIN rail module (or any other piece ...
This post entry provides a detailed description of how to port the NFC Reader Library to Kinetis K64F MCU. It is used a real porting example exercise to show the steps required to adapt the NFC Reader Library to a sample target MCU. The goal of this post is to serve as a guide for software developers requiring to port the NFC Reader Library to their MCU of choice for their designs.   NFC Reader Library overviewNFC Reader Library architecture NFC Reader Library porting to FRDM-K64F stepsN ...
Near Field Communication (NFC) is already present in more than 1.5 Billion smartphones. Well-known applications like payment and access control are enabled by NFC, but also emerging and innovative use cases which are just appearing on the horizon now.   This article gives you more information, background and how-to guides around our NFC demos, first exhibited at embedded world 2018 in Nürnberg - to help you put NFC Everywhere.   Accessories and consumablesIdentifying and authentic ...
Overview Near Field Communications (NFC) technology isn’t exactly a household word, even though the wireless technology is incorporated in more than 1.5 billion smartphones*, forms the basis of secure wireless point-of-sale payment systems, and is projected to become a $20 billion market by 2020 and more than twice that by 2024**. This massive growth will come not only from current applications but from hundreds of others yet to be explored. However, this won’t occur unless manufactu ...
NFC Tandem offers best of both worlds:   An NFC reader and a passive connected tag sharing one antenna. A user can interact with the device when it is powered off (through the NTAG I²C plus); when the device is powered, it can interact with cards, P2P devices or other connected tags.                                    ...
