Helping brands grow their business with NFC

ST25Connect, the program that helps you enhance your products with NFC technology

Ever heard of NFC?

    Smartphones, consumer goods, payments cards... this wireless technology is everywhere around us! NFC is a reliable communication technology that can be integrated in consumer products to address many use cases. NFC technology can serve different purposes across many industries, such as helping brands:
  • Fight against counterfeiting
  • Track their assets
  • Address challenges related to consumer engagement

ST25Connect is a program that aims to ensure the best product integration and implementation of NFC technologies.

With ST25Connect, companies from many industries can turn to ST to find support to implement and deploy NFC, from the start to the end of the project, to ensure its success.

ST25 Connect
    • NFC Technology

      NFC (Near Field Communication) is a short-range, wireless connectivity technology based on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) enabling contactless communication between an NFC reader and an NFC tag. To learn more on NFC technology, visit our learning page.

A whole new world of possibilities with NFC

With one NFC tag addressing multiple applications, companies can use NFC tags across their supply chains for product configuration, product authentication, or asset tracking. Once products have reached end users, the NFC tags can serve as a door to the digital world to foster customer engagement.

Discover the use cases below to learn more about practical NFC applications.

A tailor-made solution for your project

    • Consumers expect a smooth and engaging experience when using NFC technology. The integration of NFC technology in your products therefore needs to take into account their specific needs, as well as your end-product design (for example, to ensure there is no magnetic interference with product components). Overcoming the integration constraints and tailoring your NFC design to the target use case require technical expertise and know-how, which our NFC specialists will bring you as part of the ST25Connect program.

      For an overview of the technical design considerations to look out for when designing a product using NFC, read the white paper.

    • The NFC tag’s small form factor allows it to be hidden when necessary, depending on what the NFC tag will be used for. If the supplier wants the tag to be only used for traceability purposes, the tag can be fully integrated into the goods and invisible to the outside world. However, if the tag embeds multiple application possibilities such as traceability and consumer engagement, its location must be indicated so that consumers can easily find the tag in order to read it and access the information it contains.
