NFC Tag Click Board
The NFC Tag Click Board is an accessory add-on board from MikroElektronika carrying an M24SR64 NFC/RFID tag IC with a dual interface. It is embedded with a highly-reliable 8KB EEPROM memory. The user can operate NFC Tag click in three different ways: via I2C interface, with a 13.56MHz RFID reader, and with an NFC-enabled smartphone, tablet, or similar device. The RF protocol is compatible with both NFC Forum Type 4 Tag and ISO/IEC 14443 Type A. The click board communicates with the target board microcontroller using MikroBUS I2C (SCL, SDA), INT and RST lines.
The NFC (Near Field Communications) Tag click features a PCB antenna that operates at a very close range (around 3cm), which makes it quiet secure as for developing mobile payment systems (some credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.), or any short-range wireless data exchange. NFC Tag click is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.

IC/Module: M24SR64 NFC/RFID tag IC
The dynamic M24SR64 NFC/RFID tag IC included in the NFC Tag click has a dual interface. The embedded 8-Kbyte highly reliable, built-in EEPROM has 128-bit password protection with support of NDEF data structure. It can Read/Write up to 246 bytes in a single command. .
Benefits of NFC (Near Field Communications)
The use of NFC in the click board allows for two-way communication, which makes it open to a wide range of applications as compared to the traditional RFid technology. From creating interactive magazine ads and posters and using NFC car keys to open hotel rooms to making ID cards for corporate employees, NFC technology protocols can be used in a wide range of everyday applications. .
In addition to this, the short-range wireless data transfer functionality of NFC makes it very secure. Due to this, NFC technology is the preferred standard in mobile payment systems, simple Bluetooth pairing and other connection handovers, etc.
