MIFARE cards


RFID cards with MIFARE 1K and 4K contactless technology

MIFARE Ⓡ cards are contactless plastic cards with radiofrequency communication technology. As with smart cards (ISO 7816, the cards that have a golden square chip on the card), MIFARE Ⓡ technology cards have an incorporated electronic chip.

The difference is that in the case of contactless cards, the chip is not located on the surface of the plastic card, it is in the middle of the PVC of the card. An antenna is also placed in the PVC, allowing the Mifare card chip to communicate with a radiofrequency receptor. The communication frequency used in MIFARE Ⓡ is 13.56MHz. We supply cards with MIFARE Ⓡ chips with 1K memory or more.

MIFARE Ⓡ ID card

MIFARE Ⓡ is a registered trademark of NXP, BV from the Netherlands, who invented the MIFARE Ⓡ technology

The advantage of using MIFARE Ⓡ technology is that there is no need for physical contact to read or encode a card; you only need to place it a few centimetres away from the reader to be able to transfer data. Beside how easy they are to use, it is also important to point out that applications based on Mifare cards and readers/writers do not need any maintenance, unlike what happens with smart card or magnetic card systems, with which you have to take into account the wear of the cards and the reading/writing systems.

MIFARE Ⓡ cards are mainly used in the following markets:
- Transport cards. The traveller will benefit from a card that is very easy and fast to use that can be periodically recharged.
- Electronic purse.
- Cards for official departments and administrations, Police.
- Cards for access control, in protected areas, as well as personal identification MIFARE Ⓡ cards in companies, for access control and time and attendance control.

Our contactless MIFARE Ⓡ cards have a perfect laminated surface, making it possible to print them using our card printers with the best print quality and without any of the usual print defects near the chip.
