Title: NEAR FIELD COMMUNICATION CHANNEL INITIATION VIA WIRELESS CHARGING CHANNEL
Abstract:
Systems and methods which utilize wireless charging to initiate near field communication (NFC) pairing between mobile systems which utilize wireless charging and wireless charging base stations. Wireless signals sent by a mobile system over a wireless charging channel are used to initiate communication between an NFC reader presented in a base station and a passive NFC tag (or an active NFC tag used in a passive mode) present in the mobile system. Such feature allows the mobile system to act as an initiator for NFC communication without requiring the mobile system to be equipped with an NFC reader. A wireless power receiver of a mobile system may communicate with a wireless power transmitter of a base station using backscatter modulation. Commands of a standard wireless charging protocol may be repurposed to send a request for initiation of an NFC session from a mobile system to a base station.
