Near Field Com­mu­ni­ca­tion

HWM (Singapore) - - Multi-Test -

In 2004 Sony, Philips and Nokia founded the NFC Fo­rum, which today has more than 160 mem­bers. The NFC Fo­rum worked to­wards bring­ing near field com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy to the fore. Today NFC builds upon RFID (ra­dio fre­quency iden­ti­fi­ca­tion) sys­tems by al­low­ing two-way com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween end­points. It in­cludes stan­dards such as ISO / IEC 14443 and FeliCa. The NFC Fo­rum is still ac­tive at present pro­mot­ing near field com­mu­ni­ca­tions and cer­ti­fy­ing de­vice com­pli­ance. NFC has been used in contactless pay­ment sys­tems in ad­di­tion to mo­bile de­vices.
