Near Field Communication (NFC) Resources
Near field communication, or NFC, is a set of short-range wireless technologies, typically requiring a distance of 4 cm or less. NFC operates at 13.56 MHz and at rates ranging from 106 kbit/s to 848 kbit/s. NFC always involves an initiator and a target; the initiator actively generates an RF field that can power a passive target. This enables NFC targets to take very simple form factors such as tags, stickers, key fobs, or cards that do not require batteries. NFC peer-to-peer communication is of course possible, where both devices are powered. According to the NFC Forum, the three main uses of NFC currently are “sharing, pairing, and transaction.” Global companies are interested in NFC’s ability to provide pervasive marketing, simplify processes, and facilitate contactless payment for goods." - Wikipedia|
