Inside Secure unveils the all-in-one ComboPulse secure near field communication (NFC) system-in-package (SiP) that offers a drop-in, zero-tuning solution making it easy and inexpensive to add NFC functionality into a broad range of mainstream consumer electronic products.

Combining the company's PicoPulse NFC RF front end "booster" chip, a VaultSEcure secure element with Java Card OS, an antenna and all passive components in a tiny DFN8 package, the ComboPulse SiP requires no additional hardware, no external antenna and no tuning to add best-in-class NFC card emulation and peer-to-peer functions to mobile products at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional NFC solutions, claims the manufacturer.

The NFC card emulation capability provided by the ComboPulse SiP allows the mobile device to be used like a contactless smart card to communicate with standard contactless POS and other terminals to make purchases, validate tickets and coupons, accumulate loyalty points and perform banking and other secure transactions.

Peer-to-peer (P2P) mode operation provided by the ComboPulse device can simplify Bluetooth and Wi-Fi pairing between two consumer electronic devices. P2P can be used to easily exchange content or information with any NFC Forum compliant device and may be used to interact with a variety of TVs, cameras, security systems and other home devices.
