NXP Semiconductors Austria GmbH Syria. 2011.

In 1994, MIFARE was introduced by one of the co-inventors of NFC—NXP.  MIFARE accounts for approximately 80% of the contactless smart card market, so is an important player in the NFC domain. This site is extremely useful to our study of NFC, as it recounts the history of the technology, current implementations, international and domestic standards, and security (identity management, financial security, data protection…). It also outlines the technologies that employ NFC capabilities, including mobile phones, smartcards, and readers. Plus, NXP has introduced NFC into over 40 separate applications. At proposal phase, we talked about 3 potential uses for NFC, and this site can certainly broaden our perspective of our technology.

This source provides fantastic links to news, blogs, and information regarding the testing and implementation of NFC applications across the US and the world. It also contains several demo videos of the technology, so we can visually conceptualize inside the “black box” of NFC applications. Finally, the site links a number of companies which are currently integrating NFC into their technological solutions.
