NFC technology is approaching the automotive domain
The RF430CL330H-Q1 transponder enables Simple Secure Pairing (SSP) according to the Out of Band (OOB) association model for Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart and WiFi links between an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet and an automotive infotainment system. Pair and connect or execute NFC-enabled Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) with one tap to configure specific driver settings when entering the car, eliminating complicated manual procedures.
An optimized NFC interface can also serve as a secure configuration and service interface for diagnostics data, supporting 106, 212, 424 and 848 kBaud data rates to allow maximum communication flexibility. The RF430CL330H-Q1 supports an I2C or serial peripheral interface (SPI) connection to an infotainment host processor in the vehicle, including the DRA74x “Jacinto 6” or DRA72x “Jacinto 6 Eco” automotive System-on-Chips (SoCs) from Texas Instruments.
The transponder is available now. For evaluation of NFC designs, TI also provides a developer board, available under the type designation Target Board RF430CL330HTB. Additional documentation and training material can be found here.
