What Devices Are Needed for Mobile Phone RFID Applications?

Posted By RFID Journal, 08.17.2009
I am a seventh-semester student in the Computer Engineering Department at CIT in Changa, Gujarat. I want to develop a mobile cell-phone RFID application. Can you please tell me which types of devices or equipment are necessary, and what the exact cost for this equipment is?

Dear Rupak,

Nokia and other companies sell mobile phones equipped with RFID readers based on the Near Field Communication (NFC) standard. A number of firms make chips and tags that conform to the NFC standard.

Pricing depends on tag volume and packaging. If you want it in a hardened plastic case, that will cost more than a simple label. I suggest you visit the NFC Forum's Web site, www.nfc-forum.org, for information on companies that manufacture products based on the standard.
