Because there are numerous near field communication (NFC) technical standards and each standard has an independent communication protocol, an NFC software for controlling the protocols are significantly complicated. Especially, the anticollision algorithm for establishing the initial communication connection is classified into bit-oriented or time slot method according to the technical standards. Moreover, the anticollision algorithm is generally manipulated in software because of its complexity. In addition, since one host processor is shared by multiple modems in a connectivity SoC, embedding several communication modems with an NFC modem, the spare computing resources can be utilized for other modems by reducing the software cost to control the NFC modem. In this paper, we propose new design methods of the NFC modem for supporting anticollision, framing and bit rate detection in the hardware to reduce the software overhead. Therefore, the utilization of the NFC technology is enhanced in the connectivity SoC by minimizing the cost of software.
