Infineon Type 4A, 4B NFC Reference Tags Approved by NFC Forum

June 25, 2019 Brandon Lewis

Infineon’s Type 4A and Type 4B NFC reference tags have been approved via the NFC Forum’s Certification Program, making them interoperable with international NFC protocols. Based on the SECORA Pay security solution, the tags will be introduced at this month’s NFC Forum Member Meeting in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Type 4B Tag in particular is the first product that supports the NFC Forum’s contactless Type B protocol. Both NFC reference tags leverage Infineon’s SPA1.1 module packaging solution, and are preloaded with NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF) files that allow developers to test their solutions for compliance against ISO/IEC 14443 Type A and Type B.

The Type A and Type B NFC tags can be purchased in pairs in Infineon’s Universal Smart Card form factor.
