The initiator device provides a carrier field and the
target device answers by modulating the existing field.
Target device may draw its operating power from the
initiator provided electromagnetic field
Active communication mode
Both initiator and target device communicate by
alternately generating their own fields .
Device deactivates its RF field while its waiting for data.
