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. Watch Video Presentation
MIFARE® has a 50% market share in access, but it can do much more than that. Additionally to granting physical and logical access to employees and students MIFARE can be your solution for micropayment and loyalty - all in one. Through NFC functionality your app can even read out data and store new data to a MIFARE card. Holistic user experience - just a tap away. Watch Video Presentation
Any payment solution, whether it’s an mobile Point-of-Sales (mPOS), laptop, tablet, wearable, or embedded module, needs to be secure, scalable, and easily certified for interoperability. This session explains general considerations for contactless POS terminal designs adressing the most common challenges like the NFC antenna size and position as well as EMVCo L1 analog and digital compliancy. In addition, it will be explained how the latest NFC controller PN5180 is supporting PCI requirements. This session will provide an overview of NXP's products suitable for payment applications as well as selection criteria dependent on the physical terminal design and development targets. Participants will be able to reduce the design risk and speed up their tiem to market by avoiding typical roadblocks during the development of NFC-enabled payment terminals.
