Farnell element14 Launches NFC Tags and Evaluation Boards from Panasonic

5 January 2015, Farnell element14 has announced the new Panasonic NFC Tag ICs and evaluation boards with built in FeRAM and AES-128 encryption

Panasonic’s new NFC Tags provide a number of value added connectivity features including high security, high speed Near Field Communication and data storage, high radiation resistance using 4kbit Non-Volatile FeRAM Technology and have ultra low power consumption.

The products are compliant with NFC forum standards and support ISO/IEC14443 TypeB & FeliCa RF Interfaces.

The Tags and evaluation boards support a wide variety of applications including Internet of Things, energy harvesting (battery-less operation possible), latest consumer electronics such as wearable devices and audio/visual, home appliances and devices in industrial, medical and healthcare environments.

Farnell element14 was formally recognised by Panasonic for its number one customer base for Panasonic Push Products in 2014 at electronica in November.  The award recognised NPI commitment and return to sales growth in Europe in 2014.

The NFC range will be one of Panasonic’s leading Push Products for 2015 and will enable Farnell element14 to further support growing customer demand for NFC products driven by increased mobile and Host Card Emulation (HCE) technology usage.
