Near field communication (NFC) is a radio technology enabling bi-directional short range wireless communication between devices to make life easier and more convenient for worldwide consumers by simplifying transactions, digital content exchange and electronic device connection with a touch. This technology is adopted in smartphones and has a large infrastructure with millions of devices already in place.
RF430 MCUS from Texas Instruments provide tight integration between the MCU core, peripherals, software, and RF transceiver, creating true system-on-chip solutions that are easy to use.
We also provide all of the hardware platforms and software components/tooling you need to get started today!
TI provides also many complementary components like the TRF796xA/TRF7970A NFC family to meet your needs for NFC Reader/Writer devices to communicate with the RF430 MCU Transponders.
The RF430 MCU’s exceptionally low power consumption is created with a combination of a low leakage manufacturing process, design and architecture techniques, and software-managed power conservation capabilities (individual peripheral and five device level low power modes LPMs). LPMs combine clock gating and the use of low/high frequency clocks to deliver optimal current consumption, performance, autonomous peripheral operation, and minimal power-up latencies.
Our peripherals have been designed to give you maximum functionality and provide system-level interrupts, resets and bus arbitration at the lowest power. Many peripherals may function autonomously, thereby minimizing CPU time spent in active mode.
FRAM, or Ferroelectric Random Access Memory, is a type of nonvolatile memory that combines the speed, low-power, endurance, and flexibility of SRAM with the reliability and stability of flash to combine program and data into one unified memory space for the lowest power and easiest to use MCU architecture.
The RF430 MCU platform – offering the industry’s lowest power, highly integrated single-chip NFC sensor transponder family for industrial, medical, wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) applications
By making NFC design easy, small, performance-rich and power-efficient, the RF430 MCU platform helps developers to design products that require an analog or digital interface, data-logging capabilities and data transfers to an NFC-enabled reader. The RF430 MCU transponder acts as a sensor node for these applications and generates an IoT-ready solution when an NFC-enabled device pushes the data to the cloud.
