Frequently asked
questions

NFC is rooted in radio-frequency identification technology (known as RFID) which allows compatible hardware to both supply power to and communicate with an otherwise unpowered and passive electronic tag using radio waves. 

 

Near-field communication (NFC) is a set of communication protocols that enables communication between two electronic devices over a distance of 4 centimetres (1.6 in) or less.

 

Like other proximity card technologies, NFC is based on inductive coupling between two electromgnetic coils present on a NFC-enabled device such as a smartphone. NFC communicating in one or both directions uses a frequency of 13.56 MHz in the globally available unlicensed radio frequency ISM band, compliant with the ISO/IEC 18000-3 air interface standard at data rates ranging from 106 to 848 kbit/s.

A proximity card or prox card also known as a key card or keycard is a contactless smart card which can be read without inserting it into a reader device, as required by earlier magnetic stripe cards such as credit cards and contact type smart cards.

The proximity cards are part of the contactless card technologies. Held near an electronic reader for a moment they execute a predefined function.

 

Generally, a distinction is made between the following two card types:

 

Passive cards

Passive 125 kHz cards – the more widely used type – are powered by radio frequency signals from the reader device and so have a limited range and must be held close to the reader unit. For example, they are used as keycards for access control doors in office buildings. A version with more memory, contactless smartcards, are used for other applications: library cardscontactless payment systems, and public transit fare cards. Passive cards are recently used as digital business card, as well.

 

Active cards

Active 125 kHz prox cards, sometimes called vicinity cards, are powered by an internal lithium battery. They can have a greater range, up to 2 meters (6 ft). Other contactless technologies like UHF (Ultra High Frequency) smart cards can reach up to 150 meters (500 ft) and are often used for applications where the card is read inside a vehicle, such as security gates which open when a vehicle with the access card inside approaches, or automated toll collection. The battery eventually runs down, however, and the card must be replaced after 2 to 7 years.

The following is a comparison of the commonly used NFC chip types for Connected Things projects. There are additional NFC chip types available, but they are old, uncommon or not often used for Connected Things projects.
