The RF21S is the first product to combine the functions of an NFC controller and an embedded secure element in one ultra-thin chip, minimizing the space required within a mobile device and increasing transaction times.
“As mobile phones integrate more and more functions, the space available for mounting semiconductor devices becomes ever more limited,” Renesas adds. “In response, the RS21S MCU uses Renesas Electronics’ exclusive package technology to achieve an ultrathin profile (package thickness: 0.22mm) that allows for more efficient mounting design in mobile phone handsets and other compact devices.”
