ST25 NFC/RFID tags and readers

Near field communication (NFC) is a specialized subset of the 13.56 MHz RFID HF technology. NFC is a convenient, always-on, low-power wireless technology, which operates within a 10 cm range approximately. RFID UHF technology operates within the frequency range of 840 to 960 MHz, enabling it to achieve reading distances of several tens of meters.

    Embedding a single NFC chip into a product can significantly enhance its value for end users, resulting in an improved experience when using the device and ultimately driving greater consumer engagement. By simply tapping NFC-enabled devices with a mobile phone, users can leverage multiple NFC functionalities, such as:
  • wireless parameter setting
  • firmware upgrades
  • secure data/diagnostic readout

This enables new application possibilities, like access control, data tracking, device pairing, and contributes to improving existing ones, such as contactless payment.
