NFC Forum enhances connectivity of IoT devices with updated specifications

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 16:06 CET | News

The NFC Forum published the new Tag NFC Data Exchange Format Exchange Protocol Candidate Specification (TNEP) and a new candidate version of its popular Connection Handover Technical Specification (CH 1.5) with the aim to enhance IoT devices' connectivity. The TNEP candidate specification is the first of its kind to simplify the bidirectional exchange of data between an NFC-enabled phone and an IoT device, the organisation said. When combined with the TNEP, CH 1.5 enables new NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi negotiated handover products. Together, the two specifications offer a platform suited for microcontroller-based designs for IoT devices.

Both candidate specifications are available for industry review before they are validated and adopted by the NFC Forum and available for general use.
