What is a NFC?

NFC stands for Near-field communication. NFC is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is used on a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication by bringing them within few centimeters. NFC is rooted in radio-frequency identification technology (known as RFID) which allows compatible hardware to both supply power to and communicate with an otherwise unpowered and passive electronic tag using radio waves.
