NXP NTAG210/212 NFC Tags, Labels, Card
NTAG210 and NTAG212 have been developed by NXP Semiconductors as standard NFC
tag ICs to be used in mass market applications such as retail, gaming and publishing, in
combination with NFC devices or NFC compliant Proximity Coupling Devices. NTAG210
and NTAG212 (from now on, generally called NTAG21x) are designed to fully comply to
NFC Forum Type 2 Tag (Ref. 2) and ISO/IEC14443 Type A (Ref. 1) specifications.
Target applications include Out-of-Home and print media smart advertisement, SoLoMo
applications, product authentication, NFC shelf labels, mobile companion tags.
The mechanical and electrical specifications of NTAG21x are tailored to meet the
requirements of inlay and tag manufacturers.
1.1 Contactless energy and data transfer
Communication to NTAG21x can be established only when the IC is connected to an
antenna. Form and specification of the coil is out of scope of this document.
When NTAG21x 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.
