NXP Semiconductors is set to unleash a range of mobile technology solutions that include contactless technologies such as NFC and MIFARE. The NFC-enabled devices are geared for the connected city, home, office and retail environments, indicated the company.

The company will unveil the MIFARE4MOBILE that features what the company said is an advanced mobile ticketing solution that allows NFC-enabled smartphones to be used for ticketing applications on more than 650 contactless transport systems around the world.

Think&Go NFC is the developer of an NFC-shopping solution deployed in some of Casino's supermarkets in France. Think&Go NFC uses NXP's NTAG NFC tag ICs integrated in supermarket shelves to change the shopping experience by bringing individualized information and promotions, coupons to the consumer right in the place of purchase. Shoppers simply tap the price tag to access information about the goods, add them to a shopping cart or submit orders for home delivery. NFC-Shopping includes NFC P2P transfer to checkout and can work in places with no 3G or WiFi access.

Intrinsic-ID claims to be the world's leading IP provider of "Hardware Intrinsic Security" or physically unclonable functions (PUFs). The company's Saturnus software application offers a total protection of data in the cloud. It allows users to securely access, store and share their data in the cloud, anywhere and anytime. Saturnus is a two-factor authentication solution based on the unique combination of modern encryption of data and securing the data with PUF technology in the device. Intrinsic and NXP will be showing Saturnus running on PUF implemented in NXP's SmartMX2 chips that serve as embedded secure elements in mobile phones and tablets.
