NFC controller

Toshiba Corporation has announced that it has launched an NFC controller LSI (CLF)”T6NE2XBG” for secure mobile payments via proximity wireless communication. Mass production is scheduled to start in October.

The market for mobile payments, using smartphones and other mobile devices in transactions, is growing. The T6NE2XBG enables multiple concurrent connections with three different secure elements (SE), allowing manufacturers to design NFC-enabled applications before the SE for the transaction system is determined.

Toshiba has shipped more than 400 million custom LSIs for proximity cards and mobile payment systems, and expertise in radio frequency (RF)] technology gained through this experience is integrated in the new product. Toshiba is also developing an LSI for embedded SE, and plans to introduce a packaged product that incorporates CLF and SE.

A demo board of T6NE2XBG will be displayed at the Mobile Asia Expo 2013, to be held at Shanghai from June 26th to 28th.
