Extended Systems has announced the availability of XTNDAccess IrFM SDK.
This SDK (software dev kit) provides mobile device developers with the source code, application programmer interfaces (APIs), sample applications, and documentation to implement the IrFM Point and Pay Profile.
Infrared for Financial Messaging (IrFM) specifies a standard way to make payments using infrared connections for proximity payments. In February 2002, IrDA’s IrFM working group released the initial draft of the IrFM Point and Pay Profile for public review. The Point and Pay profile leverages existing financial instruments and defines the roles of the client device and the point-of-sale (POS) terminal. Additionally, it utilizes the Object Exchange (OBEX) protocol for exchanging transaction data.
