Overview


The NFC OSX/iOS SDK is the heart of the nfc ideas platform. This modular framework is a pure Objective C / C library. The library responsibilities include:

  • Reader discovery and management
  • Tag detection in Radio Frequency (RF) field
  • Tag identification
  • Low level I/O operations with the tag (read, write, lock)
  • Implementation of the NFC Forum specifications (NDEF Messages and Records)
  • Simplify app development via event pattern

The library implements a comprehensive set of operations for NFC Reader/Writer mode. This brings to reality an rich set of new use case scenarios for both the Mac and iOS devices.

USB NFC Readers


A powerful set of NFC Readers is available for use with the apps and software development kit.
