Abstract: NFC is a relatively new short-range wireless technology. For bidirectional communication between two NFC devices, the NFC Forum specifies the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) standard. Several challenges remain for exchanging data between a mobile Android device and an embedded device. First of all, the current versions of Android implement the NFC P2P specification only partially. A second challenge is the implementation of the NFC P2P protocol stack on the embedded platform. For the developers to be able to make an educated choice on whether to use NFC (P2P) or not, knowledge of the data rate is essential as well. In this article we provide an overview of these challenges. We also create a representative setup with NFC P2P stacks according to the specification on both the mobile and the embedded device. With this setup we are able to measure the NFC P2P data rate and compare it to NFC connection handover to WiFi.}
