libnfc.org - Public platform independent Near Field Communication (NFC) library

Introduction

Welcome to libnfc's official website. On this site you will find information concerning the open source library for Near Field Communication (NFC). libnfc is the first libre low level NFC SDK and Programmers API released under the GNU Lesser General Public License. It provides complete transparency and royalty-free use for everyone. Since the RFID market is spoiled by proprietary hard and software we want to contribute constructively by distributing a free library which can be used for various RFID and NFC applications.

This website mainly focuses itself on researches and developers that want to work with NFC hardware but don't want the pain of programming NFC software on a very low level. Furthermore, this library does not require any license fee or non-disclosure agreement to be signed for. This list shows the current supported features. We hope this moves the NFC development to a more open culture where discussions about applications and techniques can be shared among the users.

All major operating systems are supported, including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Compilation should work out of the box on POSIX-systems. This library supports various NFC hardware devices: dongles, flat and OEM devices. The library currently supports modulations for ISO/IEC 14443 (A and B), FeliCa, Jewel tags and Data Exchange Protocol (P2P) as target and as initiator.

libnfc developers community

The power of libnfc comes from all the volunteers that are willing to help. There is always challenge available for designers, developers, engineers and documentors. Near Field Communication provides a lot of opportunities for connecting objects to each other. Feel free to introduce new ideas and innovative steps that can be made together.

We welcome you to join the developers community and contribute your expertise to improve libnfc and it's documentation.
