NFC, or near field communication, is a form of contactless communication between devices like smartphones or tablets and a terminal. It is being widely used in contactless payment projects.
Usually, data exchange between a mobile device and an NFC terminal occurs up to a distance of 10cm.
There are four different modes of transmission when it comes to NFC: passive, active, peer-to-peer, and reader/writer.
