What’s your use case? Selecting the right NFC Tag for your application

An NFC tag is a passive, unpowered, small physical item that can interact with mobile phones. It contains an NFC chip and an antenna. The chip has a user memory which can be written to with a standardized data format and allows phones to read the data to e.g. open a specific URL to a mobile experience in the web browser.


NFC tags come in a range of antenna sizes and shapes. The larger the antenna, the larger the operating range (typical up to 4 inches or 10 centimeters). We suggest using the large antenna size if possible for a smooth user experience. If you would like to reduce the operating range to very close proximity for enhanced security, choose a smaller form factor.
