NXP Recommends: NTAG I²C plus
he demo shows 3 industrial use cases:
- Zero-power configuration via NFC
- Diagnosis via NFC
- Zero-power Firmware update via NFC
A regular Android NFC phone is used for all 3 use cases. This shows that by adding a relatively low-cost product (NTAG I²C plus at ~$0.25) to a device, you can control it from any NFC phone.
- NFC phone as touchscreen to configure the device at little additional cost – even with zero power
- Save money by getting rid of rotary switches or the like (one costs around 30$ct), or expensive cable connectors.
- Keep the device completely sealed – no openings for cable connectors needed. This keeps dirt and humidity/water out of the device.
- Read out of error logs or activity statistics even when the device is completely dead and does not boot anymore, replace a UART diagnostic port
- Firmware update can be done without opening the housing
