STMicroelectronics, MediaTek Combine NFC Technology, Mobile Platform
STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor company, has announced the integration of its contactless Near Field Communication (NFC) technology with MediaTek's mobile platforms. This integration, the company reports, enables handset developers to design smartphones capable of supporting tightly integrated NFC mobile services.
By integrating ST's NFC chipset with MediaTek's mobile platforms, the two partners can help mobile original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) overcome key technical challenges. These include antenna design and integration, antenna miniaturization, and bill-of-material optimization. The system also assures interoperability with payment terminals at retailers, transportation hubs and other locations.
"ST will provide its NFC technology to MediaTek, to deliver high contactless performance solutions to OEMs with a focus on cost and integration optimization through smaller antennas and reduced bill of materials," said Marie-France Florentin, the group VP and general manager of ST's Secure Microcontroller Division, in a prepared statement. "While ST has for years been providing to customers its own robust NFC and RFID technology, the ST21NFCD is the first device from ST to integrate the market-proven booster technology ST recently acquired."
