Adding NFC and secure services to your wearable device is a challenging task.

  • You will need to consider the impact of NFC on the power consumption of your device, drive the NFC software stack integration as well as the layout optimization in small form factors. These are not trivial tasks.
  • Also, the NFC antenna design and placement, antenna tuning and NFC performance optimization must meet the application requirements and this requires deep expertise, expensive tools and time-consuming certification process.
  • Additionally, deploying NFC-based secure services requires setting up complex and proprietary solutions to enable, onboard and manage service providers into your NFC-enabled wearable.
