Automotive infotainment system using NFC transponder
Enabling developers to bring the ease of NFC to automotive infotainment systems, Texas Instruments has announced the industry’s first dynamic dual interface NFC transponder with Q100 automotive qualification. The RF430CL330H-Q1 transponder enables Simple Secure Pairing (SSP) using the Out of Band (OOB) association model for Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart and WiFi between an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet and an automotive infotainment system.
Pair and connect or execute NFC-enabled WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) with one tap to configure specific driver settings when entering the car, eliminating complicated manual procedures.
An optimised NFC interface can also serve as a secure configuration and service interface for diagnostics data, supporting 106, 212, 424 and 848 kBaud data rates to allow maximum communication flexibility. The RF430CL330H-Q1 supports an I2C or serial peripheral interface (SPI) connection to an infotainment host processor in the vehicle, including the DRA74x “Jacinto 6” or DRA72x “Jacinto 6 Eco” automotive System-on-Chips (SoCs) from Texas Instruments.
The RF430CL330H-Q1 dynamic dual interface NFC transponder interface is available for USD $0.62 at 1,000 unit volumes. Developers can begin evaluating their NFC designs using the RF430CL330H-Q1 dynamic NFC transponder interface with the RF430CL330HTB target board for USD $19.
