NFC is very promising and looks like the future. One must have noticed, people use to carry wallet, use to have wrist watch, use to have camera and even probably a digital diary to store the contact details. All these have gone and has been taken over by your smart phone. This is going to be the revolution in our life and have great prospect.

NFC has been around a while now, with RFID. I know of many European locations that already use the mobile handsets for payments and transactions. What is need over this model is security, authentication, fraud prevention and prevention of infectious malware. I hope there is a follow up to this article that addresses those issues. MP Divakar

Good article. The "Part 1" sentence in the title guarantees a follow-up article. This one has been very good already! It has covered a lot of the engineering ground. Very interesting to learn how the different modes work in active and passive mode. This translates in a power saving benefit for the product that is considered to add the NFC capability. Of course it'll depend on the use case. Looking forward for the follow-up!

Good article. People need an incentive to embrace a new technology. By far, the biggest hurdle to NFC adoption is the absence of a compelling service. NFC should be used to make interacting with technology intuitive and natural. http://deviceconvergence.wordpress.com/2010/10/12/near-field-communication-we-need-innovative-use-cases-part-4/

Thanks for the introduction to NFC. I am wondering what will be the mode of accessing the various devices. By mode, I mean if a user wants to pay for gas using this device would they just stand near enough to the pump (without needing to hit any confirmation buttons)? I wonder what will be the fallback if a customer wants to use cash (I know who would have thought) instead of the NFC device but "got too near" the pump? I am sure there will be a clean user friendly means of interactive use, just curious if this has been thought out.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
