NXP releases new NFC-enabled connected tags and reader solution

NXP_PN7462NXP Semiconductors N.V. continues to demonstrate how its Near Field Communication (NFC) solutions can drive innovation for embedded systems designs in smart home, access management and home banking as part of the company’s vision to drive a new era in NFC.

The company released its NTAG I²C plus, which extends the family of connected tag solutions that combines passive NFC with I²C interfaces well known for enabling NFC commissioning, simple “tap-to-connect” communications between smart devices to the home network. The new tags deliver four times higher data transfer performance, while adding new, advanced features for password protection, full memory-access configuration from both interfaces, and an ECC based originality signature for protection against cloning.

At Embedded World 2016 (currently running 23 – 25 February 2016, Nuremberg), NXP also introduced the PN7462, a highly integrated family of single-chip solutions that combine low power ARM® Cortex®-M0 microcontroller core, USB, a contact and contactless interface with full NFC support and capabilities. The PN7462 family is specifically designed for applications like corporate access, hospitality or home banking as it integrates a myriad of technologies, supports the complete MIFARE product portfolio and comes with an NFC Forum and EMVCo 2.5 compliant software library. To further support quick product development and certification, the PN7462 family features Dynamic Power Control (DPC), invented by NXP, to ensure robust communication even in harsh environments.

“NXP is fuelled by our customer’s excitement to explore the rich set of NFC use cases that can securely and conveniently connect devices,” said Rafael Sotomayor, senior vice president of secure mobile transactions. “With more people choosing experiences over products, NXP is in the forefront of innovation and we want to continue making these amazing experiences possible. We therefore have built an innovation-driven, modular portfolio of NFC solutions that can support every application, from the most simple to the most complex and secure while offering comprehensive support tools and design collaterals.”

NTAG I²C plus and the PN7462 family combined with the recently launched PN5180 frontend, are an important part of NXP’s strategy to enable the industry to develop and deliver compelling NFC use cases for smarter and more secure connections.

“We are happy to team up with NXP, the market leader in contactless identification technologies, to address the fast growing leisure market and to jointly explore new market opportunities globally,” said Elmar Hartmann, managing director at GANTNER Electronic GmbH. “We have easily incorporated the brand new highly integrated PN7462 NFC reader IC solution into our next generation of connected lock systems and are excited to explore different areas that can also benefit from this solution such as fitness clubs, theme parks, public pools and spas, ski resorts, as well as educational and healthcare institutions.”

NXP’s NFC solutions are being demonstrated at Embedded World 2016 at the NXP booth# 4A-220.

    I like that NXP always claim all inventions for them. But I am working on As3911 from ams and this chip offered dynamic power adjustment since a few years now. Sorry guys no news at all.
