Innovision starts IP licensing for NFC tech

Innovision Research & Technology plc, supplier of RFID and NFC chips, has started an intellectual property evaluation and licensing program for its NFC technology called Gem.

Innovision said the program would enable semiconductor companies to develop NFC capability, either for stand-alone solutions or as part of SoC integrated NFC solutions.

It has been known for some time that Innovision intended to do this. Indeed Innovision may have been supplying semiconductor companies with NFC IP for some time. The IP is compliant with NFC standards, Innovision said.

Innovision's Gem IP will be offered to interested parties under an evaluation licence, with forthcoming test silicon. This will not only enable detailed evaluation of the NFC IP, but also enable the creation of demonstration systems to show to end-customers.

A claimed benefit of the Gem IP is its relative ease of transfer from one silicon foundry process or geometry to another, due primarily to the use of DSP.
