How Much Memory ?

Depending on what information you need to store on your NFC tags, you will have different memory requirements. NFC Tags have a very limited memory so getting a tag that will store everything you need is important. NFC.Today have put together some information on how much memory you will need in your NFC Tag.

NDEF Formatting

Some NFC chips are supplied without NDEF encoding which can affect some mobile phones ability to scan blank tags. Certain phone/tag combinations require tags to be formatted.

Ultralight EV1 Compatibility

This is a complex formatting issue which affects some phones ability to scan MIFARE Ultralight EV1 chips but not Ultralight chips. In this case, the EV1 NFC chips need to be either NDEF formatted or encoded with data to look like the older generation Ultralight chips. It varies depending on the phone rather than the operating system. If we state 'maybe', we would advise testing first.
