This paper presents the design and implementation of a complete near-field communication (NFC) tag system that supports high-security features. The tag design contains all hardware modules required for a practical realization, which are: an analog 13.56-MHz radio-frequency identification (RFID) front-end, a digital part that includes a tiny (programmable) 8-b microcontroller, a framing logic for data transmission, a memory unit, and a crypto unit. All components have been highly optimized to… CONTINUE READING
