High-Power NFC Frontend Solution

Near Field Communication is starting to become commonplace with recent devices. They make transactions so much easier and energy efficient that almost every mobile OS designers offer apps or features that use NFC. The PN5180A0ET is a high-power output NFC frontend IC that runs at 13.56MHz. It uses outstanding modulation and demodulation concept completely integrated for all kinds of wireless communications.

 The PN5180 ensures maximum interoperability for next generation of NFC enabled mobile phones. The PN5180 is optimized for point of sales terminal applications and implements a high-power NFC frontend functionality which allows to achieve EMV compliance on RF level without additional external active components.
