SIC NFC Interfaces
Sales & Support 0131 610 0225
Silicon Craft is Asia’s pioneering fabless semiconductor company with ASIC product design expertise focused on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology.

The NFC interface boards featured here offer a unique way to provide a system with a low cost and simple to drive NFC interface. These SIC4310 based boards have both an NFC type 2 RF interface, to which any NFC enabled smartphone can connect, and a serial (UART or USB) interface for the third party terminal. By emulating the NFC type 2 tag within the hardware these boards are relatively simple devices and this translates into significantly lower costs (relative to a traditional RFID reader) and simplier communication protocols.

Further more these devices are passive devices, capable of deriving their own power from the RF signal alone and are therefore ideal for applications with limited power sources. In contrast to a standard NFC reader that must be switched on continuously to detect when a device is presented, the SIC4310 based interfaces can remain completely switched until the device's RF signal activates it.
