Join us for a 1-hour webinar where we will show you how to overcome the most common design challenges in NFC integration to achieve optimal performance and fast time-to-market.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology that uses magnetic field induction to enable contact-less data exchange between two compatible devices moved within close proximity to one another. While simple in concept, implementing a robust and high-performing NFC design can be daunting, as developers must first consider things like passing certifications, interoperability, shrinking size requirements, low power consumption, and development time.

In this session, we will start by exploring the most common NFC reader applications in today’s fast-growing NFC market. We will then discuss the principle design challenges faced by engineers, and how to resolve them using the ST25R3916 high-performance NFC universal reader.

This industry-leading device boasts a unique set of features including dynamic power output, automatic antenna tuning, noise supression receiver, and low power wake up, making it an ideal solution for robust and efficient designs over a wide range of consumer and industrial NFC applications. 

You will learn:

  • the main challenges of designing an NFC reader and how to overcome them
  • about the ST25R3916 high-performance NFC universal reader device
  • how to exploit the device's unique features to design a best-in-class solution

About NFC/RFID solutions from STMicroelectronics

Near Field Communication (NFC) was born as a specialized subset of the 13.56 MHz 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.

One of the pioneers of RFID and NFC technology, ST offers a comprehensive range, covering all NFC application needs, supported by a rich ecosystem. The devices include NFC / RFID tags, Dynamic NFC tags, NFC / RFID readers & NFC controllers including secure element for secure NFC applications and turnkey solutions.


 ST is proud to be a Sponsor Member of the NFC forum.
