Smartrac NFC Products Certified By NFC Forum, DEKRA Lab

Smartrac Technology Group has announced that it has earned NFC Forum and DEKRA Lab certifications for its suite of Circus NFC inlays based on NXP Semiconductors' NTAG ICs. The subjects of certification are Smartrac's circular NFC Circus inlays and tags, including the Circus Tamper Loop tamper-detection inlay, based on NXP's NTAG210 Micro, NTAG213, NTAG213 TT and NTAG216 ICs.

The NFC Forum supports the adoption of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology around the world. DEKRA Lab, meanwhile, is a certification body for the European Union, the United States and Canada, covering electrical, electronic, ISM and radio equipment.

"NFC Forum certification demonstrates to a manufacturer's customers, consumers and partners that a company values product quality and improving the customer experience," said Koichi Tagawa, the chairman of the NFC Forum, in a prepared statement. Alejandro Torrecilla, DEKRA Lab's telecom laboratory director, added in the statement, "Quality, reliability and adherence to latest, applicable standards—as confirmed by our certification—are of key importance for everyone who is looking to get all the benefits that NFC offers."

These certifications indicate that Circus inlays and tags perform reliably in compliance with the NFC Forum's NFC Tag Device Type 2 Tag standard. The tags can be used for a variety of NFC-based smart and connected products for many applications, such as consumer engagement, brand loyalty, product authentication and instant ordering. These certified NFC inlays and tags offer improved performance, form factors and designs, the company claims, even in demanding physical environments.

"These latest NFC Forum and DEKRA Lab certifications for our Circus products are much more than just another endorsement signifying that Smartrac stands for quality and reliability when it comes to RFID and NFC," said Amir Mobayen, the president of Smartrac's transponder division and the company's chief revenue officer, in the prepared statement. "Indeed, they are a further milestone and motivator for us. In other words, these certifications fuel our hunger for NFC market success and our pursuit of customer satisfaction."
