Intel to integrate NFC into processors

Written by Fudzilla staff



Core chips get NXP Semi treatment

Intel has teamed up with NXP Semiconductor to devise two-factor authentication for mobile payments using MasterCard’s MasterPass service.

Oddly enough, the effort appears to be centred on 4th generation Core parts rather than Bay Trail Atoms. The embedded NFC readers should be used in utlrabooks, 2-in-1s and AIO PCs. However, the solution will also be used in mobile phones and tablets, which means Atom chips are getting it, too.

Although Intel collaborated with MasterCard, the solution should work with any NFC-based payment platform, including Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discovery.

Some Core-based notebooks are already shipping with NXP’s PN544PC NFC reader chip.
