The security of NFC communication is assured by its short range, typically up to 10cm, which means that only a device in close proximity to the ST95HF can receive its transmissions.
The ST95HF supports ISO/IEC 14443 Type A and B communication, as well as the ISO/ IEC 15693 (single or double sub-carrier) and the ISO/IEC 18092 industry-standard NFC communication protocols, in both Reader and Card Emulation modes.
The ST95HF includes an analogue front-end to provide the 13.56MHz air interface used by NFC devices. The transceiver also enables the detection, reading and writing of NFC Forum Type 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 tags. This means that it can be used in wireless access points and gateways to enable secure commissioning with a simple tap of devices with an embedded tag, such as smart light bulbs and smart heating controls. It also supports proximity-based secure pairing with Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® devices.
The ST95HF is housed in a 32-lead 5mm x 5mm flat package.

Because the ST95HF can operate in both Emulation and Reader modes, it is possible to use two ST95HF evaluation boards face-to-face. The EVAL-ST95HF
board features an LCD screen and an STM32F103RGT6 microcontroller with which the ST95HF communicates via its serial peripheral interface.
