The Value of the Linux* Near Field Communications (NFC) Project
Near Field Communications is a short-range (a few centimeters or inches) radio technology that enables communication between devices for the purposes of tag-reading, peer-to-peer sharing or providing payment information.
Who It’s For
NFC is used by operating system vendors to be included in their standard solutions, as well as the customized solutions created by system builders, and device manufactures.
Linux NFC is written in the C and Assembly programming languages, and distributed under the GPL v2 license.
About Intel Involvement
Intel is a leading contributor to this and other Linux communication technologies, ensuring interoperability and compatibility.
NFC is optimized through open source for client devices containing Intel® Quark™ Technologies, Intel® Atom™ processors and Intel® Core™ processors.
