Reader Types

Programmable NFC Controller

Highly integrated devices combine an NFC frontend with a freely programmable 32-bit Arm® Cortex® -M0 microcontroller. Functions as the main system microcontroller and an optimal solution for very compact footprints.

NFC Controller With Integrated Firmware

Plug and play solutions combine an NFC frontend with a 32-bit Cortex-M0 microcontroller equipped with integrated firmware, and are optimized for use with application processors. They come with Linux® and Android drivers and include an NCI interface.

NFC Frontend

These NFC devices are a flexible way to add NFC connectivity to a system. The NFC stack runs on the separate system MCU. All our NFC frontends are supported by our NFC Reader Library, so design-in is fast and easy.
