Qualcomm has announced that it has added support for Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology to certain chipsets in its product portfolio.

Qualcomm is helping accelerate the commercial availability of mobile handsets featuring the short-range technology and is engaged with NFC solutions providers to develop reference designs based on the company’s Mobile Station Modem (MSM) chipsets.

NFC technology is well-suited for payment, mass transit, ticketing and other similar applications requiring a quick and secure contactless exchange of data between devices that are in close proximity to each other.

NFC is a short-range wireless connectivity technology operating at 13.56MHz and transferring data at up to 424Kbps.
