Webinar Replay: Discover the high-performance universal ST25R3916 NFC reader IC
Learn how to design robust, powerful, effective NFC readers in industrial, automotive, consumer and payment applications
During this one-hour webinar, you learn how the advanced features of the latest generation of NFC reader ICs will ease your NFC design. We highlight the challenges and performance requirements in industrial, automotive, consumer and payment applications and explain how to use the new ST25R3916 NFC reader IC to address them. This industry-leading device offers a unique set of features including dynamic power output, automatic antenna tuning, a noise suppression 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.
This session provides useful tips and technical information which will help product designers move forward with their development and understand the benefits of using the new ST25R3916 NFC reader IC.
There is a lively Q&A session at the end of the webinar where ST’s experienced engineers answered questions from the webinar participants.
Dan Merino is a Staff Application Engineer at STMicroelectronics specialized in ST’s RFID product portfolio and has held this position since June 2016.
Martin Vacek is a Technical Marketing Engineer at STMicroelectronics responsible for RFID / NFC solutions in Central and Eastern Europe and has specialized in RFID / NFC technology since 2003.
Baris Yilmaz is in charge of Technical Marketing at STMicroelectronics for RFID / NFC solutions in Central and South Europe and has worked in the area of RFID / NFC since 2010.
The ST25R3916 is a high-performance NFC universal device supporting NFC initiator, NFC target, NFC reader and NFC card emulation modes.
Fully compliant with EMVCo 3.0 specifications for analog and digital, this NFC IC is optimized for POS terminal applications, and enables fast EMVCo 3.0 certification cycles, even under harsh conditions (noisy LCD displays for example).
It includes an advanced Analog Front End (AFE) and a highly integrated data framing system for ISO 18092 passive and active initiator, ISO 18092 passive and active target, NFC-A/B (ISO 14443A/B) reader including higher bit rates, NFC-F (FeliCa™) reader, NFC-V (ISO 15693) reader up to 53 kbps, and NFC-A / NFC-F card emulation. Special stream and transparent modes are possible too.
The ST25R3916/7 features high RF output power to directly drive antennas at high efficiency. It includes additional features, making it a perfect fit for power-savvy applications. It contains a low power capacitive sensor to detect the presence of a card without switching on the reader field as well as a low power RC oscillator and wake-up timer to automatically wake the ST25R3916 up after a selected time period.
It operates from a wide power supply range (from 2.4 to 5.5 V), and a wide peripheral IO voltage range (from 1.65 to 5.5 V).
