Texas Instruments' Dynamic NFC
Transponder RF430CL330H hardware enables uncomplicated and inexpensive
wireless set up. The low cost kit brings a secure, simplified pairing
process for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections to products, such as printers, speakers, headsets, and remote controls, as well as computer peripherals.
Designed specifically for NFC connection handover and service interface functions, the kit includes host diagnostics and software upgrades.
The company also announced its NFCLink software firmware library, developed in partnership with Stollman E+V GmbH and Kronegger GmbH to streamlining NFC development across TI’s entire embedded processing portfolio. The Dynamic NFC Transponder RF430CL330H combines a wireless NFC interface and wired SPI/I2C Interface to connect the device to a host (classified as an
NFC tag type 4 device). The data content is then shifted dynamically
from the host into the RF430CL330H’s SRAM and can then be transferred
over the NFC interface. The transponder supports data rates up to 848 KBs per second for RF data transfer (over-the-air firmware updates). It incorporates an ISO 14443B-compliant RF interface, allowing wireless access of NDEF messages. The host wakeup capability in an RF field maximizes battery life.
