What’s NDEF?

NDEF (NFC Data Exchange Format) is a globally adopted standard for operations involving reading/recording of NFC tags.

The need for a standard is due to the wide range of devices that appeared having largely different communication standards. Created and governed by International Standard ISO/IEC 18092, which defines interfaces and protocols for simple interconnections of a number of devices working at the 13,56 MHz frequency. Its specifications comprehend from messages encapsulation to the extraction of such data. The full version of the standard may be found at the link:http://www.eet-china.com/ARTICLES/2006AUG/PDF/NFCForum-TS-NDEF.pdf?SOURCES=DOWNLOAD in addition, there’s a formal implementation of a library of this standard for Windows Phone 8, developed by the company Mopius (@Mopius), and available for free download at:https://ndef.codeplex.com
