STMicroelectronics has become an Associate member of the Zhaga Consortium. It aims to advance the deployment of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in the industrial lighting market.
Sylvain Fidelis, head of marketing and application for NFC Tags and Readers, STMicroelectronics said, “With the Zhaga Consortium, the lighting industry is paving the way towards harmonized and interoperable usage of NFC technology, driving new opportunities to enhance lighting-equipment connectivity. Our solid know-how in connectivity and lighting technologies is key to building the bridge between NFC standards and lighting-industry requirements.”
Efficiency of LED-driver manufacturing lines
The Zhaga Consortium is a global industry organisation that aims to standardise interfaces of LED luminaires. ST’s membership to the Zhaga Consortium will facilitate the integration of NFC in lighting products and accelerate the emergence of new standards. A crucial benefit of NFC technology is the ability to improve the flexibility and efficiency of LED-driver manufacturing lines.
Dee Denteneer, secretary general of the Zhaga Consortium said, “We welcome ST as a solid partner with strong NFC and lighting expertise and look forward to defining best-in-class standards together for connectivity in industrial lighting.”
