NFC Tags

I want to write a NFC tag using NDEF format with TNF = 4.

 

The content will be something like this:

 

Domain: "com.example.MyApp"

Type Name: "MyApp_MyType"

Content : "XXXXXXXX"

 

I found there are 4 NFC tag types:

 

  • Type 1:Type 1 Tag is based on ISO/IEC 14443A. This tag type is read and re-write capable. The memory of the tags can be write protected. Memory size can be between 96 bytes and 2 Kbytes. Communication Speed with the tag is 106 kbit/sec. Example: Innovision Topaz
  • Type 2: Type 2 Tag is based on ISO/IEC 14443A. This tag type is read and re-write capable. The memory of the tags can be write protected. Memory size can be between 48 bytes and 2 Kbytes. Communication Speed with the tag is 106 kbit/sec. Example: NXP Mifare Ultralight, NXP Mifare Ultralight
  • Type 3:Type 3 Tag is based on the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) X 6319-4. This tag type is pre-configured at manufacture to be either read and re-writable, or read-only. Memory size can be up to 1 Mbyte. Communication Speed with the tag is 212 kbit/sec. Example: Sony Felica
  • Type 4:Type 4 is fully compatible with the ISO/IEC 14443 (A \& B) standard series. This tag type is pre-configured at manufacture to be either read and re-writable, or read-only. Memory size can be up to 32 KBytes; For the communication with tags APDUs according to ISO 7816-4 can be used. Communication speed with the tag is 106 kbit/sec. Example: NXP DESfire, NXP SmartMX with JCOP.)

Which is the correct type for my example?

I'm sure the answer to this question will be of interest to many people so I've attempted to give some guidance on this in item 17 of the NFC Developer'sd FAQ:

Re: NFC Tags

It would be great if developers could follow Ekke's lead and share their experiences with different types and makes of tag! :-)
