We have a lot of customers who don't know the difference between NFC tags and RFID tags, and let me
take you into the world of NFC and RFID. 

NFC is the abbreviation of Near Field Comunication, a short-range high-frequency wireless communication 
technology developed jointly by Philips and Sony, allow E-contact point-to-point data transfer ( within 
10 cm ) to exchange data between electronic devices. This technology evolved from E-Contact Radio
Frequency Identification ( RFID ) and is downwardly compatible with RFID, which was first pushed by Philips, Nokia and Sony, it may be used in handheld devices such as mobile phones. Because of the natural security
of NFC, NFC technology is considered to have a great application prospect in mobile payment and other fields. 

NFC can use the 13.561 Hz frequency band to carry out wireless communication at the distance of 10cm,
just like the contactless IC card technology, " Just touch it ", you can exchange data between different 
electronic products. Different from the contact IC card, the NPC can communicate with each other. As long 
as they support NFC products and IC cards, they can read or write data. It can also communicate with other 
portable products such as mobile phones. But the speed of data transmission is not very high, only 106 
kbit / s, 212 kbit / s, 424 kbit / s and 848 kbit / s speed are available. NFC main uses are : access 
control attendance, membership management, mobile payment, tickets, subway, bus and so on. 

RFID is the abbreviation of Radio Frequency Identification. It is a non-contact automatic identification 
technology, which identifies the target object through the radio frequency signal to obtain the relevant 
data, to identify the work without manual intervention, can be used as a wireless version of the bar code, 
and can read all within a certain area product Information. RFID technology is waterproof, antimagnetic, 
high temperature resistance, long service life, large reading distance, the label data can be encrypted, 
and the storage data capacity is greater, the storage information changes freely and so on.
