NFC FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is near field communications (NFC)?
NCF stands for Near Field Communication. It is a contactless protocol to transfer files. NFC Tags are microchips with an antenna, which can contain information and be read easily and quickly by an NFC-enabled mobile phone or tablet.
Near field communication uses electromagnetic radio fields to allow two compatible devices to exchange data and share information when passed close to each other. Typically, the devices must be within four to five centimeters of each other to work. This contrasts with far field communication which operates across great distances.
How does NFC work?
Data is transmitted between two NFC compatible devices and/or tags when they come near each another. The different NFC interactions include:
PASSIVE TO ACTIVE (or vice-versa)
A passive NFC tag such as an NFC sticker is touched to an active NFC device such as an NFC-enabled phone. The NFC Branding Solution offered by Spector and Co. is this type of interaction.
ACTIVE TO ACTIVE
An active NFC device such as an NFC-enabled phone is touched to another active NFC device
What is an NFC tag?
The term NFC tag is commonly used for a passive NFC item. Examples of passive NFC tags are NFC inlays, NFC stickers, NFC wristbands, etc. There is no battery inside of NFC tags. They simply have an integrated circuit (IC) and an antenna. Data is transferred via this antenna which will be powered up when an NFC enabled device comes near the NFC data.
Do I need an app or software to use NFC?
Unlike QR Codes, you do not have to download an app to use NFC. All you have to do is make sure that the NFC feature is turned on in your mobile phone. This option is usually found in the phone settings. If NFC is turned on in your NFC phone, NFC will be on in the background (just like the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi feature). That means if you touch your NFC phone to an NFC tag, the data transfer will occur without you having to do any extra steps. The user experience is different for each device and many devices will request your permission before opening the data from the NFC tag.
What distance can an NFC tag be read from?
NFC is restricted to a very small reading range, hence the name Near Field Communication. The two NFC devices and/or tags will need to be within 15 millimeters of each other in order to successfully exchange data.
