Introduction to Communications Toolbox Library for the NFC Protocol

Communications Toolbox™ Library for the NFC Protocol allows you to model communication between two Near Field Communication (NFC) devices in MATLAB®. NFC is a set of short-range wireless standards for simple communication between two electronic devices. NFC is used in a wide range of applications, such as mobile payment systems (Apple Pay® and Google Wallet™), automated fare collection systems (in public transportation), electronic door access systems, personal health monitors, and data transfers between smartphones.

The following video shows you how to:

  • Set up communication between two NFC devices - a PN532 NFC Shield and a MiFare 1K NFC Tag

  • Capture this signal using USRP® devices and bring it into MATLAB

  • Decode this captured NFC signal using Communications Toolbox Library for the NFC Protocol add-on

You will also learn about the functionality provided by this NFC add-on and how to get the add-on.
