Infineon Technologies has announced the release of an NFC tag application developer kit for the North American market.
According to Infineon, smart phone app developers can use the kit to design and test information exchange applications based on NFC Forum Type 2 Tag technology.
“One key category of applications for NFC technology is based on the ability to create ‘Tap and Use’ applications that link between a mobile device and tags embedded in objects,” said Infineon in a release. “Programmed with a short message or URL pointer to a website, embedded tags can be used to make signs and posters in retail environments ‘smart’ and provide easy check-in to locations for consumer-oriented services.”
Infineon’s NFC Application Developer kit includes 128 byte and 2kb SLE66 R01 Series NFC tags in two form factors and an SLE 66R32 in a card form factor, along with programming information and application notes.
The kit is now available through Infineon’s distribution partner for $99.
