Future Electronics, the Quebec distributor and electronic components giant, recently announced immediate availability of NXP’s NFC smart connected home products, making it easier for Canadians and global customers to access them
Entertainment systems, lights, thermostats, and even appliances are being connected to the internet. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is the term used to define to the network of connected devices, enhances our experience and simplifies the management of our home environment.
NFC is important for many reasons, including simplicity, security, and power savings. Ten years ago, NXP co-invented NFC technology and co-founded the NFC Forum, the standards based organization that includes more than 170 member companies.
NXP has the most extensive NFC portfolio and is the most trusted name in NFC technology. NXP Readers/NXP NTAG NXP’s deep portfolio of NFC products includes NFC frontend, controllers and connected tags. NXP provides highly integrated RFID reader modules which combine the functionality of discrete ICs while simplifying development. The PRH601 and PR601 implement an LPC1227 Cortex M0, and a CLRC663 contactless reader IC while the PRH601 adds the HTRC110 HITAG Reader IC. Both modules comply with ISO/IEC14443A&B, ISO/IEC15693 and FeliCa and are available in LQFP100 package.
NXP’s NTAG family fully complies to NFC Form Tag specs, ensuring universal interoperability with NFC devices. Additionally, NXP NTAG is based on ISO 14443A standard, allowing easy integration into existing infrastructures using MIFARE and SmartMX. NXP NTAG I2C offers contact and contactless interfaces. The IC communicates quickly and easily with a microcontroller and memory. The NTAG I2C also can supply power to external devices such as the micro via embedded energy harvesting circuitry. The NTAG21xF features best in class RF performance, a large range of memory sizes, as well as field detection and SLEEP mode in a small footprint. This makes it particularly well suited for smart media and mass market applications.
All of NXP’s NFC smart connected home products are now available with immediate shipping from Future Electronics.
