UPM Raflatac, a Tampere, Finland-based supplier of pressure-sensitive RFID labels, has rolled out NFC-compliant tags designed for applications such as multi-functional media badges for music, data and movie discs and electronics pairing.
With a multi-functional NFC media badge embedded into a disc, it is possible to open hyperlinks, use ticket and payment functions and vote for the latest music hits via an NFC-compatible mobile phone. The media badge also offers a normal optical disc interface for music, pictures and movies, as well as a print surface for bar codes, 2D codes and personalized naming.
In electronics pairing applications, NFC tags are generally used to facilitate recognition between a mother device, such as a mobile phone, and its accessories. The recognition protocol between a device and its accessory means that consumers can pair their devices without a complicated set-up procedure.
UPM Raflatac’s new NFC product offering is available with ICs compliant with NFC Forum Tag types 1, 2 and 4.
