Distributor Farnell element14 now has Panasonic’s NFC tag ICs and their accompanying evaluation boards: the tags have built-in FeRAM (ferrolectric RAM) and AES-128 encryption

Panasonic's NFC tags provide a number of value added connectivity features including high security, high speed Near Field Communication and data storage, high radiation resistance using 4kbit Non-Volatile FeRAM Technology and have ultra low power consumption.

The products are compliant with NFC forum standards and support ISO/IEC14443 TypeB & FeliCa RF Interfaces.

The tags and evaluation boards support a wide variety of applications including Internet of Things, energy harvesting (battery-less operation possible), latest consumer electronics such as wearable devices and audio/visual, home appliances and devices in industrial, medical and healthcare environments.

The NFC range will be one of Panasonic’s leading Push Products for 2015 and will enable Farnell element14 to further support growing customer demand for NFC products driven by increased mobile and Host Card Emulation (HCE) technology usage.
