NTAG® standard for intelligent labels, tags, transponders and devices
NTAG® provides universal cooperation with NFC devices such as mobile phones, tablets, as well as built-in NTAG® / NFC readers and modules compliant with ISO / IEC14443 standard.
How does the RFID access control system work?
An access control system is a set of elements that to a large extent combines surveillance software with executive devices to perform specific activities and their registration in a database.
MIFARE® DESFire EV2 secure RFID standard with support for multiple applications at the same time
The MIFARE DESFire EV2 smart card standard offers high performance, increased security, and extended support for supporting multiple applications to enable the construction of new business models.
UCODE® NXP UHF RFID standard
The NXP UCODE standard compliant with EPC Global (UHF frequency) is the ideal choice for applications in supply chain applications and in logistics requiring high speed.
Basic components of the LEGIC® access control system
The five LEGIC Connect components, Mobile SDK, reader and card integrated circuits, and key and authorization management work together to provide an advanced technology platform for secure user identification and IoT applications.
ISO/IEC 14443-(A/B) RFID standard
The ISO / IEC 14443 standard is an international technical standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization, specifying the operation of proximity cards and the protocol used to communicate with it.
How does an active RFID access control system work?
Unlike systems based on passive RFID, Active RFID systems operate with a larger reading range due to the built-in battery transponder increasing transmission power.
UHF readers and transponders in industrial and logistic applications
UHF RFID transponders and readers as well as transponders have a direct impact on process optimization in medium and large enterprises.
From March 4, 2019, each newly issued ID will be a E-ID - ID card with embedded electronic layer. This is the result of the national E-citizen program - a series of solutions that help us deal with many matters quickly and efficiently - also remotely. The electronic layer is nothing more than saved in electronic form, among others our biometric data, name, surname, PESEL, place and date of birth and citizenship.
What is an E-mark and what does it mean for RFID devices used in vehicles?
E-mark is a harmonized certification requirement of the European Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe for road vehicles.
The MIFARE DESFire EV3 standard increases the security and speed of contactless transactions
The extensive list of security features gives MIFARE DESFire EV3 more ways to protect your data and ensure privacy. Hardware and software are certified under Common Criteria EAL 5+, and the chip complies with ISO / IEC 14443A 1-4 and ISO / IEC 7816-4, supporting a wide variety of open source cryptographic algorithms based on DES, 2K3DES, 3K3DES or AES.
MIFARE Plus EV2 an improved standard for modern proximity and cloud applications
NXP's second-generation MIFARE Plus EV2 - MF1P (H) x2 chip comes with improved performance and security features, along with support for mobile services and wireless upgrades. MIFARE Plus EV2 is a fast and cost-effective way to upgrade your existing AES proximity infrastructure, and provides a better experience, with greater convenience, in Smart City services.
RAIN RFID technology - passive UHF solutions for IoT applications
RAIN RFID technology is a global alliance promoting the widespread adoption of UHF RFID technology in a manner similar to other wireless technology organizations, using the GS1 UHF Gen2 protocol, which is standardized as the ISO / IEC18000-63 standard
RFID in electric vehicle EV charging station applications
Electric vehicles (EVs) are steadily gaining in popularity. Thanks to constantly modernized technology, they become more efficient and increase their operational range. However, like any vehicle (scooter, car), they require charging stations, which with the growing interest, are created in places convenient for users, such as shopping centers, parking lots or in specially prepared "e-Charge" charging networks.
Cabinet systems using RFID technology
Broadly understood subject of access control also includes applications such as access to lockers and storage compartments in cloakrooms located, among others in fitness clubs, swimming pools, sports clubs, universities or everywhere where there is a need to operate cloakroom systems with access granted on the basis of RFID proximity cards or transponders.
Parking systems using active RFID technology
Unlike systems based on passive RFID, Active RFID systems operate with a larger reading range, thanks to the built-in battery transponder increasing its transmission power. Increased range in this case is paid for by shorter operating time and a larger size of the transponder itself, but in some applications this approach is crucial.
What is OSDP and why is it so important in RFID applications?
Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) is an access control application communication standard developed by the Security Industry Association (SIA) to improve the interoperability of access control products and their security.
