You are a sales person or FAE and are looking for ways to sell more Near-Field-Communication (NFC) products? This community provides ideas, information and materials that help you to successfully sell more NFC products.





Use Cases

Convincing a customer of NFC starts with presenting clear use cases and benefits. Altough the following use cases are already implemented in the market, not all customers know that they can benefit from NFC in these applications. Therefore, it is your opportunity to propose them to the customer!


Authentication, Automatic Configuration

"Everything which has consumables or accessories."



Configuration, Parametrization, Diagnosis, FW Update

"Replace DIP switches and service UARTs – control via an app without power."




"Easy pairing."



Access Control

"Card reading for the next generation of residential locks."






Training material



Customer presentations

  • The DistyNet offers customer presentations for each use case, plus the overview presentation “NFC Everywhere”.
  • The NFC Reference book is a collection of success stories and real-world NFC implementations, which is also available on the DistyNet.


The NFC Cube is perfectly suited for a first NFC demo and demonstrates all use case principles. An instruction video as well as more information can be found here. If you need an NFC Cube, please ask your NXP DBM or


The Schneider Zelio timer relay is an excellent demo to show how NFC adds value for parameterization and diagnosis – basically replacing mechanical elements like DIP switches, rotary switches or connectors. Search your local RS  shop or other electronics distributor for RENF22RMMW. Here are some selected links:

The Creative Muvo Mini speaker shows the easy pairing process of Bluetooth® devices via NFC. It is available via sources like Amazon.


All listed collaterals are also available in printed form. Please reach out to your NXP DBM or DTRM.
