The following Software Development Kit (SDK) lineup for various operating environments supports the development of application software to control the reader. These products make it possible to implement the systems of a wide range of applications that utilize FeliCa cards/FeliCa-compatible devices, ISO/IEC14443 Type A / Type B cards and NFC Forum devices.
Supports application development for ISO/IEC14443 Type A / Type B cards, as well as FeliCa cards / FeliCa-compatible devices and Mobile Wallet Phones (Osaifu-Keitai).
This free of charge SDK for browsing and evaluation provides a part of function of "SDK for NFC Lite". For more details, see "SDK for NFC Starter Kit"
For other widely-adopted operating systems, such as Linux, reference source code with transplantable C language is provided to develop applications for ISO/IEC14443 Type A / Type B cards, as well as FeliCa card/FeliCa-compatible devices and Mobile Wallet Phones.
