Smartrac Introduces BullsEye NFC Tag With Sony FeliCa Lite-S Chip
Smartrac has announced a new version of its Near Field Communication (NFC) BullsEye tag featuring Sony's FeliCa Lite-S chip. The new tag provides 224 bytes of user memory and an enhanced security feature that enables mutual authentication by message authentication code (MAC), Smartrac reports, making it suitable for all typical non-payment NFC applications.
The BullsEye NFC tag with Sony FeliCa Lite-S chip supports a variety of application areas, such as electronic pairing, gaming, smart posters, loyalty and product authentication. The tag complies with the NFC Forum's Type 3 tag standard, as well as the ISO 18092 standard, which defines the RFID interface and protocol for Near Field Communication. It is also compatible with the existing Sony FeliCa Lite-S infrastructure, delivers data rates of up to 212 or 424 kilobits per second (auto switching is supported), and is NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF) pre-formatted.
Like all of Smartrac's BullsEye NFC tags, the new Sony FeliCa Lite-S-based version is a circular tag with a die-cut diameter of 38 millimeters (1.5 inches) and an antenna diameter of 35 millimeters (1.38 inches), providing the appropriate performance ratio for NFC mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, the company reports.
