  6. 6. NFC • NFC is a contactless communication – In typical, the communication distance is less than 4 cm – Operation frequency is 13.56MHz – Killer applications: e-wallet, name card exchange, check-in, and so on – Related standards • NFCIP-1 (ISO 18092 or ECMA 340) • NFCIP-2 (ISO 21481 or ECMA 352) • NFC Operation Mode – Peer-to-Peer – Reader/Writer – Card Emulation • NFC Tag – Simple: typically write-once – Complex: provide mathematical operations, hardware encryption – Sophisticated: provide computation environment Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Networking Laboratory Page : 6

  9. 9. NFC Forum Tag Type • Type 1 (based on ISO 14443-A) – Re-writable / write-protection – Memory size is between 96 bytes and 2 Kbytes – Speed: 106 Kbps – Vendor: Topaz (Broadcom) • Type 2 (based on ISO 14443-A) – Re-writable / write-protection – Memory size is between 48 bytes and 2 Kbytes – Speed: 106 Kbps – Vendor: NXP • Type 3 (based on JIS 6319-4, as known as FeliCa) – Pre-configured as re-writable or read-only – Memory size is limited to 1 Mbytes – Speed: 212/424 Kbps – Vendor: Sony • Type 4 (compliant with ISO 14443-A/B series) – Pre-configured as re-writable or read-only – Memory size is limited to 32 Kbytes – Speed: 212/424 Kbps – Vendor: NXP Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Networking Laboratory Page : 9

  11. 11. NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF) • NDEF Message Format • Description – Each NDEF message is composed of multiple NDEF records (unbounded but limited by memory size) – Each NDEF record can carry the data with size of 232-1 bytes • If there is multiple NDEF records, the flag of message begin (MB) must be set as 1 in the first NDEF record. • If there is multiple NDEF records, the flag of message end (ME) must be set as 1 in the last NDEG record. • If there is only on NDEF records the flags of MB and ME must be set as 1 in the NDEG record. – NDEF does not provide error handling, QoS, and other additional functionalities. Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Networking Laboratory Page : 11 NDEF Message NDEF Record 1 (MB=1) NDEF Record 2 … NDEF Record n (ME=1)
  12. 12. NDEF Record Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Networking Laboratory Page : 12 • Flags – Message Begin (MB) – Message End (ME) – Chunk Flag (CF) – Short Record (SR) – ID Length (IL) • Type Name Format (TNF) – Indicates the data type – Indicates how to read Type filed • Type Length • ID Length • Payload Length • Type – Indicates payload type • ID (not tag ID) – Unique NDEF Message ID • Payload – Actual data 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 MB ME CF SR IL TNF Type Length Payload Length 3 Payload Length 2 Payload Length 1 Payload Length 0 ID Length Type ID Payload
