The use of NFC on toys and games opens a new world of opportunities for manufacturers. NXP® NFC technology bridges accessories and games. Host interfaces range from Bluetooth® Low Energy and USB right through to the humble earphone jack. The MCU and NFC reader manage communication with the game pieces, gamepads, switches antennas and tracks their position on the board. Gameplay results are processed to create relevant visual or sound stimuli, or sent to the players' mobile devices. Data can be transmitted via Bluetooth to apps on the players' phones, presenting further possibilities.
