NFC – Near Field Communication

This technology allows  for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other, usually by no more than a few centimeters. It is expected to become a widely used system for making payments by smartphone in the United States. Many smartphones currently on the market already contain embedded NFC chips that can send encrypted data a short distance (“near field”) to a reader located, for instance, next to a retail cash register. Shoppers who have their credit card information stored in their NFC smartphones can pay for purchases by waving their smartphones near or tapping them on the reader, rather than bothering with the actual credit card.

It simplifies

  • File sharing
  • Electronic business card
  • Electronic wallet
  • Mobile payment
  • Parking ticket
  • Boarding pass…etc

Pairing is easy..not like Bluetooth or Wifi

This is the logo for NFC enables devices.

iPhone 5 might come up with NFC included devices in the near future. Persistent rumours and patent applications strongly indicate an NFC enabled iPhone is on the way, though there has been no official announcement yet.

The list of NFC phones available today

  • Google Nexus S
  • Samsumg Galaxy S II
  • Nokia C7 …Etc

NFC – its an ISO 18000-3 RFID compatible, Standardisation body is ISO/IEC, Network Standard is ISO 13157 etc, Network Type is Point-to-point, Cryptography not with RFID, Range <0.2m, Frequency 13.56MHZ, Bit rate 424kbit/s, Setup time <0.1s and Power consumption <15mA

Good luck!!!
