The system includes a first electronic device including an nfc chip communicatively coupled to a passive nfc tag, where the nfc tag having an integrated circuit with a predefined information content, a second device including an active nfc reader configured to read the predefined information content from the nfc tag based on an identification of a proximate distance therebetween, and where the nfc tag is capable of transmitting an activation signal to the nfc chip to enable transition of the nfc chip from a first state to a second state such as to establish a near field wireless communication link between the two devices to enable exchange of digital content therebetween..
|Methods and apparatus for coordinating communications between a nfc radio and other coexisting rat radios|
A method, an apparatus, and a computer program product for wireless communication are provided in connection with reducing interference between nfc communications and other coexisting rat based communications. In one example, a communications device may include an interface that is equipped to detect that a nfc communication and a coexisting rat communication are to occur within a threshold time of each other, determine whether the communications will interfere with each other beyond a threshold level of interference, and align timing for the nfc communication and the rat communication upon a determination that the communications will not interfere with each other beyond the threshold level of interference.
|Dynamic interface selection in a mobile device|
A mobile wireless device/platform dynamically selects or instantiates a desired interface to improve conditions related to the mobile (multi-radio) wireless device, such as power consumption savings, radio coexistence mitigation, electromagnetic interference (emi) reduction, etc. In one instance, the mobile wireless device identifies one or more hardware interfaces in a mobile wireless device host.
|Multi function toy with embedded wireless hardware|
This invention relates to a toy or plush stuffed animal or a doll with built in hardware device connected with a speaker(s) and a microphone(s). The main usage of this toy is to be used as a bluetooth headset, baby activity monitor in conjunction with an mobile application, as a music player with unlimited playback of audio story books or lullaby music, any kind of music when paired with smart phones and any blue tooth enabled devices or as a interactive talk back toy when used with a mobile application..
|Contactless communications using ferromagnetic material|
A communications structure comprises a first semiconductor substrate having a first coil, and a second semiconductor substrate having a second coil above the first semiconductor substrate. Inner edges of the first and second coils define a boundary of a volume that extends below the first coil and above the second coil.
