Near Field Communication with Linux - Samuel Ortiz, Intel
Linux recently gained support for NFC (Neard Field Communication), and this presentation will describe the status of the current NFC stack in terms of actual features, hardware support and also distribution availability.After showing how this stack is architectured, we will also explain what our long and short term plans are.
NFC hardware is typically found on mobile devices, many of them running Linux or Android. Up until recently, only Android provided a real and viable software support for those chipsets. During this presentation I will show how the Linux NFC stack is now getting on par with the Android stack features and API wise and how its design allows for an already broader range of supported chipsets.
I work as a software engineer at the Intel Open Source Technology Center. There I maintain a few kernel subsystems, among them the NFC one. | I also maintain and implement the NFC userspace stack and mess with connection managers. | | My speaking experience include giving talks about various connectivity and wireless topics at the Embedded Linux Conference, the Plumbers Conference or the MeeGo one, among others.
