Future Electronics Offers NXP’s Complete Line of NFC Solutions

Montreal, Canada – May 10, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to offer their customers the complete line of NFC solutions from NXP.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a fast, intuitive technology that lets you interact securely with the world around you. NFC wireless proximity technology is available in billions of smartphones, tablets, and other consumer electronics—with new devices arriving almost daily. Already common in building access control, mass transit ticketing and mobile payment applications, there are new uses for NFC being introduced to the industrial sector, taking it beyond its traditional uses.

NXP offers a complete solution for NFC designs, including a wide range of reader IC’s, tag IC’s and development tools for evaluation purposes. They provide access to software tools and have many resources on their support site.

Future Electronics customers can contact their sales representative for advice and help to get started integrating NFC technology into their designs.

NFC is more intuitive than Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, operating with a simple touch or tap. It uses power very efficiently, as only one of the two devices needs to be powered. It’s a trusted and proven addition to existing technologies, especially for pairing devices, and the cost of implementation is low.

The complete line of NFC products and resources from NXP are available now from Future Electronics. For more information and to watch a video about NFC, click here. To see the entire portfolio of NXP products available through Future Electronics, visit: www.FutureElectronics.com
