NFC is everywhere. You may not realize it, but you probably come in contact with NFC every day. You’ve probably used it with your smartphone, payments, transit, and even hotel keycards.
And even more cool products and services that use NFC are emerging. From GameGolf that tracks your on-course performance to the wearable NFC ring that shares information and unlocks doors and phones, the opportunities for NFC to add convenience to your life are endless.
You’re probably seeing a lot more – and we want to hear about it!

|What is NFC?
NFC stands for Near Field Communications. It’s contactless and seamless, and lets two devices exchange data when they’re brought close together. You can read more about NFC that lets you interact securely with the world around you with just a touch.The NXP-NFC connection
But you might not know some of the details. Like how we co-invented NFC, with Sony, more than a decade ago, or that our role in NFC’s creation won us the European Inventor Award. Or the fact that we’re in more than 80% of all NFC-equipped smartphone models, and more than 90% of all NFC-enabled POS terminals. We’re proud of our history, but know it’s only the beginning. We see NFC branching out, enabling a new era of smart connectivity, and becoming an essential part of everyday lives – for everyone, everywhere.The startup-style innovation
To achieve that vision, we take a comprehensive approach. Not only do we offer the most complete portfolio, we also make NFC easier to integrate, with user-friendly tools that let anyone – even people with little to no RF experience – take full advantage of what NFC has to offer. That includes young companies with a great potential to innovate.In our “Meet the NFC innovator” series, we interviewed the creative minds behind cool NFC-enabled NFC technology.
