Near Field Communication is an efficient technology for communications with short ranges. It offers an intuitive and simple way to transfer data between electronic devices. A significant advantage of this technique is the compatibility with existing RFID infrastructures. Additionally, it would bring benefits to the setup of longer-range wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, Wifi. NFC is based on existing contactless infrastructure around the world that is already in use by millions of people on a daily basis.NFC phones also offer enhanced security, enabling the user to protect the secure applications through the phone's user interface features.
We searched for NFC records and analyzed them for different trends within PatSeer.
In the second part of the report we categorize the NFC patent set and will look at further analysis of the Patents around those categories.
