    Question Tag suggestion

    Hi all, I have an application that reads and writes data from a tag in NDEF format. Now I need to buy some tags that support NDEF format and ISO-14443. Could anybody suggest any?

    Which tags should I use? Can anybody provide some references?

    hi sithlord81,

    first of all NDEF is not a physical card type. It is a data format suuported by NFC forum. You can format any Mifare 1K cards as NDEF. You can use mifare cards from Philips.

    See this site for buying mifare 1k: http://www.smartcardfocus.com/shop/i.../p/index.shtml

    Or you can also get NFC Type 1 tags from Innovision (currently the capacity is only 96 bytes).

    Thanks to all for your suggestion,

    now it is much clearer... but I still have a question, are there any requirements for NDEF format support? Should the card be ISO-1443 compliant or something? Mifare 1k tags are currently compliant with any NFC tag definition?

    Sorry for my naive question but I am just a NFC beginner

    All NDEF supported tag types are listed in NFC-Forum tag type definition specification.
    See

    Hope this helps
