Montreal, Canada (webnewswire) February 13, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring NFC Forum-compliant contactless tags from NXP in the latest edition of Sense + Connect + Control.

NXP’s NTAG 5 switch eliminates the need for an MCU in gaming, lighting, and other cost-sensitive designs. Operating at 13.56 MHz, it is an NFC Forum-compliant contactless tag, and delivers added functionality, connectivity, and efficiency at a lower cost.

It offers Read Range Duality with two-way communication links with NFC-enabled device at close range, and by powerful industrial reader over a longer range, so it can be calibrated and parameterized automatically while in the factory.

Easy configuration supports a range of control functions, and the onboard originality check lets users verify the end-product’s authenticity.
