Near Field Communication
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a standards-based, short-range wireless connectivity technology that enables simple and safe two-way interactions between electronic devices. NFC technology allows consumers to perform contactless transactions, access digital content and connect devices with the simplicity of a single touch. NFC technology provides global interoperability of contactless identification and interconnection technologies.

"The 'Click' program's selection of NFC says a great deal about both the maturity of NFC technology and the growing demand for it among consumers," said Gerhard Romen, NFC Forum vice-chairman. "At this year's CES, NFC Forum members showcased a broad range of commercial applications that take the convenience of NFC in a number of exciting new directions."

NFC operates in the 13.56 MHz frequency range, over a typical distance of a few centimeters. The underlying layers of NFC technology are based on ISO, ECMA, and ETSI standards. NFC technology is supported by the world's leading communication device manufacturers, semiconductor producers, network operators, IT and services companies, and financial services organizations. NFC is compatible with hundreds of millions of contactless cards and readers already deployed worldwide.
