Near Field Communication (NFC) Type 5 tags and labels operate in the high-frequency (HF) 13.56 MHz range and comply with the NFC-V Technology specification from the NFC Forum. The data stored in these Type 5 tags and labels is transferred to NFC smartphones or professional NFC/RFID HF readers that support the NFC Forum standardized NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF).
ST25TV Type 5 Tag chips are certified by the NFC Forum and comply with the industrial ISO/IEC 15693 RFID specifications thus providing consistency of behavior across NFC implementations. They set the foundation for interoperability with NFC smartphones and NFC/RFID HF readers.
ST25TV Type 5 NFC Tag ICs are the first solution to combine the convenience of the longer read range of the ISO/IEC 15693 vicinity standard with a tamper detect capability. When compared to other NFC types, ST25TV tags are easier to tap and read by consumers, therefore improving the user experience designed by each brand. Brands and manufacturers now have access to smaller NFC tag labels and stickers, which are safer and easier to install for enhanced engagement with their customers. This unique solution can be used throughout the product lifecycle, from the point of manufacture up to consumer engagement at the point of sales and beyond. It gives a digital life to everyday consumer goods.
ST25TV tags can be used for cloud management-based brand protection associated with tamper detection in different application sectors such as wine & spirits, pharmaceuticals and luxury items. They can also be used for product identification as well as logistics and traceability applications with a long-range HF RFID reader infrastructure.
The ST25TV Type 5 Tag ICs series offers a variety of differentiating features and options:
