Abstract: Near Field Communication is based on inductive coupling, where loosely coupled inductive circuits share power and data over a distance of a few centimeters. An NFC-enabled device can operate in three different modes. They are reader writer mode, peer-to-peer mode, and card emulation mode. NFC allows two way interactions between electronic gadgets with more security and simplicity.
Keywords: Card emulation mode, Inductive coupling, NFC, Peer to peer mode, Reader, writer mode.
