Within RFID technology, which we have previously been able to explain, we find the well-known NFC (Near Field Communication) concept, another type of radio frequency communication that is increasingly frequent in our day to day.
Surely you know one of its most famous applications which is the mobile payment system, but the NFC offers other applications that help achieve the digitization of objects or communication with machines.
NFC technology (Near Field Communication), is a type of near-field communication that allows one device to be connected to another in order to authenticate or transmit information.
It can be said that this technology helps turning into realiy the phenomenon known as the Internet of things (IOT), since it allows an easy and secure interconnection between objects.
Now that we know what NFC is, we will see in a general way how this technology works.
The NFC uses radio frequency for its operation, specifically, the 13.56 MHz radio frequency spectrum (like HF RFID). Anyway, it uses a power of less than 15 mA, which allows an immediate data transmission in a range of up to approximately 20 cm of distance between devices. NFC tags generally have a storage capacity of between 96 and 512 bytes.
Regarding operating modes, we can find two main categories:
One of the strengths of this technology is the speed with which it transmits the data (it can reach about 424 Kbps), and the fact that it does not need a prior pairing between devices (unlike other technologies such as Bluetooth, which requires a prior identification of the device before data can be transmitted to it).
NFC helps us to interconnect products with the network, and there are many applications that can be developed with it. Below we list some of the most common today:
At Dipole we offer a wide variety of NFC tags and labels to carry out all the applications offered by this technology.
