New NFC Forum Specs Enable NFC Devices to Communicate With Broader Range of Devices, Tags
The enhancements include an active communication mode for peer-to-peer and support of NFC-V technology.
NFC Activity Technical Specification Version 2.0 defines the building blocks (Activities) to set up the RF protocol for different roles inside an NFC device. The candidate version of Activity 2.0 was published in October 2015 and the NFC Forum is now publishing the adopted version following the public review. This technical specification has been extended to support ACM for P2P communication and NFC-V technology. Additionally, updates have been included based on ongoing alignment efforts with other organizations and standards, such as EMVCo, ISO/IEC 14443 and ISO/IEC 18092.
NFC Digital Protocol Technical Specification Version 2.0 defines the digital part of the RF protocol used by NFC devices. It is a half-duplex protocol allowing an NFC device to act as a reader/writer, an emulated card or a P2P device. The specification supports different RF technologies and protocols for compatibility with existing RF infrastructures. The candidate version of Digital 2.0 was published in October 2015 and the NFC Forum is now able to publish the adopted version following the public review. Version 2.0 of the Digital Protocol Technical Specification also adds ACM for P2P communication and NFC-V technology. Additionally, updates have been included based on ongoing alignment efforts with other organizations and standards, such as EMVCo, ISO/IEC 14443 and ISO/IEC 18092.
The NFC Forum Type 5 Tag Candidate Specification allows for the storing and reading of an NDEF message on the NFC Forum tag. The NDEF message can contain a variety of information, resulting in different actions on the NFC Forum device reading an NFC Forum tag. NFC Forum Type 5 Tags are based on existing contactless products and are commercially available. By defining the NFC Forum Type 5 Tag, this candidate specification builds on the NFC Forum Type 5 Tag Operation Technical Specification published in October 2015, which defined NFC device behavior with NFC Forum Type 5 Tags but did not address how to build NFC Forum Type 5 Tags.
