Near Field Communication is a new short-range, standard-based wireless connectivity technology that uses magnetic field induction to enable communication between electronic devices in close proximity. Based on RFID technology, NFC provides a medium for the identification protocols that validate secure data transfer. NFC enables users to perform intuitive, safe, contactless transactions, access digital content and connect electronic devices simply by touching or bringing devices into close proximity.
This lecture gives an overview of NFC uses, NFC technology and signals, RF measurements on NFC units and shows some examples of measurement results with R&S instruments and software tools.
