NFC (near field communication) is a wireless technology which allows transferring data between two NFC devices. NFC tags contain small microchips with little antennas which can store a small amount of information for transfer to another NFC device, such as a Smartphone.
The NFC Tag consists of three basic components:
1. NFC chip with a small amount of memory
2. An antenna
3. Substrate with holds the chip and antenna together
The NFC chip has a tiny microchip which contains a small amount of memory and the technology to allow it to communicate with an NFC Reader. The antenna is a coil or loop of wire having an etching a fraction of a millimeter thick. The substrate holds the parts together
Seritag are NFC Tags in terms of NFC stickers, labels, inlays or discs. Other NFC items such as wristbands, keyfobs we refer to as NFC products
