Near Field Communication (NFC) was born as a specialized subset of the 13.56MHz RFID technology in 2002.
Initially used for access control and public transport payment cards, the integration into credit / debit cards and smartphones is driving rapid growth not only for payment but also as an always-on radio link for simple pairing, diagnostic readout, parameter programming and much more.
