Our technology is an affordable alternative solution to Bluetooth and NFC with additional benefits. It is a short-range (0-15 cm) communication solution that will work with any mobile devices with a loudspeaker (e.g. smartphones, tablets or application-specific devices) without the need for pairing. No further hardware is needed on the transmitter side to send data from any mobile device to the receiver. The technology is based on magnetic coupling and is not depend on acoustic transmission. Therefore, no microphones are needed on the receiver side and noise is not an issue. As a software-based radio approach, it requires only a few passive components on the receiver side. It provides smart device manufacturers with an easy-to-use short-range communication solution for a wide area of applications.
