Near Field Communication (NFC) is expanding quickly, and moving well beyond the smartphone. More than 500 million non-phone, NFC-enabled devices are expected to ship in 2018, and many of those devices will spend most of their lives somewhere near the living-room couch.
When it comes time to relax, entertain, and connect at home, NFC adds simplicity, security, and a whole lot more. Here are just five of the many reasons why NFC enhances the living-room experience:
NXP has developed its latest NFC controller, PN7120, to allow designers a plug’n play experience for all applications running in Android, Windows, Linux or any other OS environment. The chip comes with embedded NFC firmware providing all NFC protocols as pre-integrated feature. Adding NFC to the mix makes it easier to pair, commission, and maintain smart components, and offers new levels of personalization and control – all with the highest levels of security. How do you see NFC changing the way you experience home entertainment?
