Short for Near Field Communication, NFC is the widely used technology behind daily applications such as access control and mobile payment. The NFC Shield features an integrated PN532 transceiver module which handles contactless communication on 13.56MHz. You can read and write from and to a 13.56MHz tag with this shield or implement point to point data exchange with two NFC Shields.
In version 2.0, an independent PCB antenna was added which will extend the shield's field out of almost any enclosure you use, leaving more room for you to design the exterior of your project.
