NTAG Original 213, NTAG 215, and NTAG 216 have been developed by NXP® Semiconductors as standard NFC tag ICs to be used in mass-market applications such as retail, gaming, and consumer electronics, in combination with NFC devices or NFC-compliant Proximity Coupling Devices. NTAG 213, NTAG 215, and NTAG 216 (from now on, generally called NTAG 21x) are designed to fully comply to NFC Forum Type 2 Tag and ISO/IEC14443 Type A specifications.
Target applications include Out-of-Home and print media smart advertisement, SoLoMo applications, product authentication, NFC shelf labels, and mobile companion tags.
Target use cases include Out-of-Home smart advertisement, product authentication, mobile companion tags, Bluetooth® or Wi-Fi pairing, electronic shelf labels, and business cards. NTAG 21x memory can also be segmented to implement multiple applications at the same time.
Thanks to the high input capacitance, NTAG 21x tag ICs are particularly tailored for applications requiring small footprints, without compromise on performance. Small NFC tags can be more easily embedded into, e.g., product labels or electronic devices.
The mechanical and electrical specifications of NTAG 21x are tailored to meet the requirements of inlay and tag manufacturers.Contactless energy and data transfer
Communication to NTAG 21x can be established only when the IC is connected to an antenna.
When NTAG 21x is positioned in the RF field, the high-speed RF communication interface allows the transmission of the data with a baud rate of 106 kbit/s.Simple deployment and user convenience
NTAG 21x offers specific features designed to improve integration and user convenience:
NTAG 21x IC provides full compliance to the NFC Forum Tag 2 Type technical specification and enables NDEF data structure configurations.
The evolution of smart cities is, in many ways, directly tied to the evolution of MIFARE, NXP’s leading brand for contactless solutions. Our MIFARE IC and cloud products support public transport, hospitality, loyalty and micropayment installations worldwide.
These secure, scalable and flexible products support multiple form factors, from smart cards and tickets to mobiles and wearables.
