Keywords:NFC Forum? Type 2 Tag Operation? interoperability?

The NFC Forum is a standardisation consortium that was formed to advance the use of Near Field Communication technology by developing specifications, ensuring interoperability among devices and services, and educating the market about NFC technology.

The NFC Forum has defined a data format called NDEF to store different kind of application data. NDEF structured data may be stored inside contactless tag.

The "Type 2 Tag Operation" technical specification has been developed to describe how the reader/writer device (called NFC Forum device) can store/retrieve NDEF data on a Type 2 Tag platform.

The NXP products MIFARE Ultralight and MIFARE Ultralight C are compatible with the NFC Forum "Type 2 Tag Operation" technical specification. This document extends the information and the functionalities about how an NFC Forum device can manage the MIFARE Ultralight product family as an NFC Forum Type 2 Tag platform.
