Near Field Communication in the Real World Moving to System on Chip Integration

The success of Near Field Communication (NFC) across a broad range of applications depends on its large-scale adoption by enterprises and consumers. This implies the need for simple, low-cost implementation of the technology in a wide variety of devices, from mobile phones and laptops to point-of-sale terminals and ticket machines.

The success of Near Field Communication (NFC) across a broad range of applications depends on its large-scale adoption by enterprises and consumers. This implies the need for simple, low-cost implementation of the technology in a wide variety of devices, from mobile phones and laptops to point-of-sale terminals and ticket machines.

One way NFC technology can be integrated cost-effectively in mass-market electronic devices is through System on Chip (SoC) implementation in other common chipsets, including those for Bluetooth, WiFi and UWB. In high-volume products, SoC implementation of NFC offers significant unit-cost savings and very efficient integration, with lower overall space, processing and power requirements — while adding great value.

This paper outlines the business case for NFC integration and highlights the key considerations that need to be taken into account when implementing a custom NFC design.
