Qualcomm teams with NXP to bring NFC to more IoT devices
QUALCOMM HAS TEAMED UP with Dutch semiconductor maker NXP to bolster its near field communication (NFC) offering, expanding the technology outside of the smartphone and into Internet of Things (IoT) devices. he firm's embedded secure element (eSE) will be integrated across Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800, 600, 400 and 200 processor-based platforms. The new offering features a module variant derived from the recently launched NXP PN66T NQ220 module, now named the NQ220. The NQ220 allows service providers to deliver new applications more easily by simplifying the process of deploying credentials to devices. This is said to reduce design costs and time-to-market for mobile wallets as well as applications such as pre-payment, and transit and access control.
