USB interface & PC/SC NFC reader (coupling device)

The NFC’Roll is a practical and uncommun-designed NFC coupler. It includes 3 modes:

  • read/write mode (NFC-A, NFC-B et NFC-F)
  • card emulation mode (NFC-A)
  • peer-to-peer mode (NFC standards)

The NFC’Roll is a ready-to-use product to emulate a Tag or send a message through NFC (peer-to-peer NFC beam).

Sending light and sound signals, easy to drive thanks to applications, the NFC’Roll perfectly suits to interact withe users.

OEM version (no housing - bare card) is available. Please contact us.
