NFC tags enable simple Wi-Fi and Bluetooth pairing
The NTAG21xF portfolio provides a cost effective and flexible solution for pairing via NFC.
The tags have an integrated field detection mode which switches on the accessory when in close contact with an NFC phone or mobile device, quickly enabling a simple ‘tap to pair’ connection. With a large memory, from 144 (NTAG213F) up to 888 bytes (NTAG216F), the NTAG21xF products are able to easily cover both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi pairing.
NTAG21xF series devices are NFC Forum Tag 2 Type compliant and work with any NFC-enabled phone.
With field detection to ‘wake-up’ the accessory pairing is now intuitive and much easier. Users simple tap their phone to the accessory and pairing is complete
Additionally the NTAG21xF family offers the possibility to set the NFC tag into an non responsive mode to avoid a bad user experience when the battery is running low.
