MIFARE is a registered trademark of NXP Semiconductors in the field of contactless smart cards and near field proximity cards. MIFARE is a contactless smart card created according to the ISO/IEC 14443-A specification and uses radio frequency identification (13.56 MHz) for verification. This technology was first developed by the Mikron Group in 1994 and was resold to Philips Electronics in 1998 (renamed NXP Semiconductors in 2006). In recent years, MIFARE has been widely used in daily life, such as mass transit system payment, store small consumption, access security system, and library card.
With sales of more than 5 billion smart cards and IC cards and more than 50 million readers, MIFARE has become the technology choice for most contactless smart cards worldwide, and it is the most successful platform in the field of automatic charging.
In addition, its comprehensive product line is also widely used in areas such as customer loyalty programs, road pricing, access control management, and games. For example, the "one-card" contactless IC card system is developed using Mifare card reading and writing technology. Computer technology, automatic control technology, network communication technology, smart card technology, sensing technology, pattern recognition technology, and mechatronics technology are integrated in intelligent "one card" management for intelligent buildings, smart communities and modern enterprises and schools. A comprehensive solution with the best price/performance ratio. The "one card" system uses a sensor IC card as a ticket, and collects parking, access control, consumption, elevator control, attendance, patrol, and club fee collection on a single card. All functions can be completed with only one card, which can be widely used. It is used in major areas such as access control, logistics management, parking management, commercial consumption, business management, and school hotels.
The technology uses an open-ended architecture that meets the trends, is compatible with any third-party systems and devices, and enables high-level integration of user systems. It can truly achieve the purpose of comprehensive "one-card" intelligent integrated management. With more than 10 years of development experience, the system has experienced nearly a thousand user applications and tests, and the performance is very stable and reliable.
