As consumers embrace the ease-of-use and convenience of contactless payment, global retailers continue to invest in electronic mPOS solutions, with the market projected to grow to more than 80 M installed units by 2018 (IHS Research). mPOS equipment manufacturers need technology designed to address this growth, while meeting security and battery life requirements of the latest mobile payment technologies. The Tower POS development tool (TWR-POS-K81) showcases the capabilities of the Kinetis K81 microcontroller along with the expandable tower system, including the latest NFC controller PN5180 as well as a contact reader interface (TDA8035). A demo application is showing the EMVL1 functionality for NFC and contact transactions. Development tools will be available for all participants of this sessions.
