INFO

A 25 mm-sized NFC sticker with a NTAG216 chip is commonly used for storing digital business card data, for product identification, and for marketing purposes.

The NTAG216 is an NFC Type2 chip that operates at a frequency of 13.56 MHz, has a memory of 888 bytes, and it is compatible to the ISO/IEC 14443-3A standard. It has a 7-byte long unique ID number that cannot be changed and is usually used for identification purposes.

NFC Stickers for digital business cards

A digital business card is a business card that contains an NFC chip that can store user contact information. With our NFC stickers, you can transform your regular business card into a digital one and be able to transfer your contact information to another NFC phone with just a quick scan.


To encode the chips you have to do the following steps:

1. Install the NFC tools application on your mobile phone:
2. Select Write - Add Record
3. Select Add Contact
4. Enter your details
5. Press Write and touch the phone to the digital business card

The NFC business card encoded with NFC Tools contains the following data:
- First Name Last Name
- Company
- Title
- Phone
- Email
- Web page

The content of the business card is saved in vCard format, also known as ‘VCF’ (Virtual Contact File).

We noticed that some iPhones still have issues reading the business cards created with Android OS, and so to avoid them you can store your VCF file to Google Drive or another location and encode the URL link into the chip. This way Android devices will use the stored contact information from a chip and iPhones will read the information from the internet.

NFC Stickers for product identification

NFC stickers are becoming very popular to store product information, and manufacturing or owner data. They are suitable for use in various products that are made from non-metallic materials. They are ideal for tracking electric appliances or tools with plastic housings, sporting equipment, automotive parts, and other assets.  

Since NFC chips operate at a proximity range of up to 5 cm, the sticker has to be properly embedded in the product.

The 7 byte-long NFC chip unique ID number is public and often read as 14-character long ID number in HEX format like: “04 DA 47 B2 10 57 80.” This is the format which is used by NFC devices like mobile phones, tablets, and some NFC desktop readers. Some other readers have the possibility to adapt/change the reading format setting. There are also readers that read the ID number differently, but if they read the whole chip ID it can be transformed at a later stage within a software.

The chip ID is always easily readable with many NFC applications, and is visible to the public. The ID is usually used as an identifier which connects the product to the other information inside the manufacturer database.

The NTAG216 chips have a memory of 888 bytes for user data which can be password protected or locked with a special key. Some sample data are the following: 

“Product_ID: FRE123456789DE; Production_Date:12.3.2021; Lot_No.:SI234543FT988G; Key_Parameters:15-A3-45-23-FE-67-54; Maintenance:1.3.2012,E12, E15,E56;15.4.2013, E12,E21,E35;15.4.2013,E12;12.9.2021; Product_Status: OK” 

NFC chips can be used also for proof of ownership of sporting equipment. The manufacturer can use an ID chip for manufacturing purposes and product tracking, and the user can store and lock an ownership data like:

“This snowboard belongs to John Doe, 2803 Pike Street, San Diego, California, 92123, USA. If found, please call +1 858-597-5073.”

Reading test for 25 mm-sized NFC stickers with a NTAG216 chip

We have tested the NTAG213 cards with different kinds of readers and measured the reading distances. This is not an official test, but it was made to inform you what reading distances you may expect with your application.
 
RFID reader Reading distance
ACR1252U 2 cm
SYRIS RD300-H1-G 1 cm
SYRIS RD200-M1 1 cm
R80U 1 cm

The reading distance between the card and the reader is affected by many different factors, like the size of the antennas and quality of the chips, the interferences of metal, and electromagnetic signals, etc.
