The latest NFC Type 5 specification was released in 2015, which is based on the RFID technology defined by the ISO/IEC 15693 specification. ISO/IEC 15693 specification was originally developed to enable a longer RF operational range that up to 1.5 meters. NFC Forum chose to support Active Communication mode that allows data transfer performance similar to the RFID technologies that supported by NFC Forum, but limits the reading distance at NFC devices. The typical Tag Type 5 IC are NXP® ICode series and ST25TV series by STMicroelectronics. The applications for Tag Type 5 normally are library books, packaging, and ticketing, etc.
