NXP delivers NTAG I2C solution for home appliances

NTAG

NXP Semiconductors N.V. unveiled a complete passive solution for near field communication (NFC) interaction for a wide variety of applications such as home appliances, consumer electronics, wearable technology, and home automation.

By combining a contactless NFC interface with a contact I2C interface and onboard non-volatile memory, the NTAG I2C solution enables new kinds of NFC tag interactions, including advanced device pairing, personalisation of electronic devices, and device maintenance. While existing NTAG solutions can only interact with NFC-enabled devices, the new NTAG I2C memory can be accessed via the existing embedded microcontroller of any electronic device.

Optimised for very low-power operation, the passive NTAG I2C solution is capable of energy harvesting from the mobile device to power external circuitry such as low power microcontrollers. It also includes a field-detect function for automatic power-up, so that the mobile device's battery is not drained during standby while waiting for a NFC phone.
