Discover the solutions, standards, protocols, and tools that are enabling faster and easier deployment of NFC/RFID applications
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) and Near-Field Communication (NFC) are proven and widely-used technologies for wireless identification, using radio waves to gather information and identify objects carrying tags or transponders. Complementary to other wireless technologies, NFC is designed to transfer data between two devices in close proximity. Its features make it the ideal fit for a large number of use cases that cannot be addressed by the other technologies, creating a unique opportunity for products and services.
Found in all newer Android- and iOS-based mobile devices, NFC is also used to cover transactions between bank cards and POS terminals, transportation and eTicketing, digital access, passport-reading, digital identity, and a multitude of other contact-less applications.
NFC technology is also becoming widely used in industrial equipment, utility meters, gaming platforms, and access control for buildings and vehicles.
You'll come away with new ideas and solutions for NFC/RFID that you can implement today in many applications and almost any market vertical.

More Info on NFC/RFID
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.
