ams AG reveals the high performance AS3953 chip for NFC devices
NFC technology has been getting a lot of attention recently, but not all of it is good. The technology is often criticized as being limited in its capabilities and unable to meet the needs that modern consumers have. While many businesses seem to be happy with NFC technology the way it is now, others are keen to see the technology become more advanced. ams AG, a leading developer of high performance integrated circuits, is one such company and has produced a new line of NFC chips that could make the technology much more attractive.
Chip will speed up electronic communications
ams AG has introduce the AS3953 interface chip for NFC devices. The company suggests that this chip is both easier to incorporate into existing NFC services and more affordable than conventional technologies. The AS3953 chips provide users with high data-rate interface between NFC devices. This allows for communication between electronic devices to occur faster, thus speeding up NFC-based services. One of the more attractive aspects of the chip, however, is that it can generate its own energy.
AS3953 chip harvests energy from radio frequencies
ams AG has designed the chip to generate power by harvesting the radio frequency emissions that come from NFC devices. This allows developers to incorporate bi-directional NFC capabilities to devices using this chip without the need for more hardware. This reduces the cost of such endeavors and also helps the device that the AS3953 chip is installed in to have a longer battery life.
NFC technology takes a step forward with the help of asm AG
The AS3953 chip complies with specifications established by the NFC Forum, the leading standardization group concerning NFC technology. The chip can therefore be implemented into any NFC devices currently on the market, as well as those slated for future release, without imposing any significant problems in terms of compatibility. The new chip from ams AG is a step forward for NFC technology, and may bring more favor to NFC as it will be more capable of handling the needs of consumers and businesses.
