Near Field Communication is hot. In today's increasingly connected world, this simple, intuitive technology lets you interact securely with the world around you with a simple touch. NFC is available in hundreds of millions of smartphones, tablets, and other consumer electronics, with new devices arriving almost daily. We are convinced to see NFC everywhere very soon. This hub gives you technology insights as well as the latest news about NFC solutions from NXP.

With NFC being a specialized subset of RFID, also check out our dedicated RFID technology page.

NFC Products

When adding NFC to a system, there are three options to choose from: NFC frontends, which provide just the NFC function, NFC controllers, which combine the NFC frontend with a microcontroller, and NFC connected tag ICs, which are passive microchips used in smart NFC tags. We have released new products in all categories ushering in a new era in the evolution of NFC to bring intuitive proximity technology everywhere:

  • PN5180: High-power NFC frontend solution
  • PN7150: High performance plug-and-play NFC controller
  • NTAG I2C plus: NFC Forum Type 2 Tag compliant IC with I2C interface
