Toshiba has launched the "T6NE2XBG" NFC controller LSI (CLF) for secure mobile payments using proximity wireless communication.
The market for mobile payments, using smartphones and other mobile devices in transactions, is growing. The T6NE2XBG enables multiple concurrent connections with three different secure elements (SE), allowing manufacturers to design NFC-enabled applications before the SE for the transaction system is determined.
Toshiba has shipped more than 400 million custom LSIs for proximity cards and mobile payment systems. The expertise in RF technology that Toshiba has gained through this experience is integrated in the new product.
 NFC: Near Field Communication. One of the international standards for proximity wireless communication systems  CLF: Contactless Front-End. A type of NFC controller.  SE: Secure Element. Semiconductor products that have security functions, which provide a tamper-free platform.  RF: Radio Frequency.  P2P: Peer-to-pear.
