For one-touch network commissioning of our smart home devices, NFC technology enables a simple, adaptable, secure, and protocol-neutral solution. Network commissioning, often known as connecting our gadgets to the home network, can be difficult or complicated.
With NFC, appliances may be joined to the home network with a single tap, and the correct app allows us to control or modify nearly anything using our smartphones and tablets. Depending on the intended application, a near-field communication chip, also known as an integrated circuit, can be employed in a variety of ways.
An NFC chip permits short-range wireless communication between two devices when coupled with the proper antenna. Only devices that are in close proximity to one another can interact using NFC, adding an extra degree of security.An NFC reader chip and an NFC tag are the two independent components of an NFC communication system.
The NFC reader chip, as its name implies, “reads” the data before launching a particular action, making it the system’s active component. The NFC tag, a passive component of the system, receives power from it and NFC commands are sent to it.
Public transportation commonly makes use of NFC technology, allowing passengers to pay using a smartphone or ticket that supports the technology. The NFC reader chip in this illustration would be built inside the bus payment terminal, and the NFC passive tag would be in the ticket or smartphone that receives and responds to the NFC commands issued by the terminal.
The Global smart home NFC chip market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The new best-in-class JN5169 wireless microcontroller from NXP Semiconductors has been launched along with accompanying smart home and smart lighting solutions. It features certified ZigBee LightLink, Home Automation, and GreenPower software stacks and, for the first time on the market, an NFC-commissioning option that enables users to intuitively connect systems with just a single tap.
The JN5169 increases the connectivity range of NXP’s current smart home devices thanks to an on-chip +10dBm power amplifier. The solution’s capacity to link with 250 nodes enables a wide range of deployment options in residential and commercial settings.
The JN5169 contains a new toolchain for software development that enables up to 15% code size savings and offers robust debugging capabilities. It is also ZigBee 3.0 and Thread ready.
The risk of hacking is significantly reduced thanks to intuitive one-touch commissioning using NFC connectivity, which makes it possible to couple the devices quickly but securely without transmitting network information “over-the-air.”
