2. Introduction tocommunication technologies. As a
NFC is one of the latest wireless
short-range wireless connectivity technology.
NFC offers safe — yet simple and intuitive — communication between
Enables the exchange of data between devices over a distance of up to
NFC-enabled devices only need to be ‘tapped together' for them to
connect via NFC
3. How NFC Works
NFC is based on RFID technology that uses
magnetic field induction to enable communication
between electronic devices in close proximity.
NFC operates at 13.56 MHz
For two devices to communicate using NFC, one
device must have an NFC reader/writer and one
must have an NFC tag. The tag is essentially an
integrated circuit containing data, connected to an
antenna, that can read and written by the reader.
NFC application categories:
Touch and Go: Applications such as access control or
transport/event ticketing, where the user needs only to
bring the device storing the ticket or access code close
to the reader.
Also, for simple data,capture applications, such as
picking up an Internet URL from a smart label on a

7. Touch and Connect: Linking two NFC-enabled devices to enable
peer to peer transfer of data such as downloading music,
exchanging images or synchronizing address books
11. What is the Future?
Nokia is active in the area of NFC since 2004
Together with Philips and Sony, founded the NFC
Currently, global membership in the NFC Forum
had exceeded 140 organizations.
13. TECHNICAL BASIS AND FEATURES
- It is intuitive (“touch and start”)
- It is suitable for payment/financial applications
- It interacts also with battery-less smart devices
- It is low cost
- Standardized in ISO/IEC 18092 NFCIP-1 (NFC Interface
and Protocol - 1)
- Based on RF-ID technology at 13.56 MHz
- Operating distance typical 20 cm
- Data rate today up to 424 kbps (up to 1 Mbps planned)
14. Low cost, NFC has very fast and easy configuration and
pairing,Instant connection capability.
“Out of the box”
-No special software
- No manual configuration and settings.
- No search and pair procedure
- User initiates the process
- Simple data acquisition just by touching
- Read data from any electrical device (interface dependent)
- Read data from passive RFID tag
In the near future NFC will be the frontrunner
technology for data capture, data transfer and access
NFC technology continues to evolve and develop
new applications. It is going to bring revolution in
