MIFARE® Classic

The MIFARE® Classic family covers contactless smart card ICs used in public transport, access management, loyalty cards and many more. Fully compliant with ISO/IEC 14443 Type A, it is available with 1 KB and 4 KB memory, and 7 byte or 4 byte identifiers.

Following the broad acceptance of contactless ticketing technology and extraordinary success of the MIFARE Classic® product family, application requirements and security needs constantly increased. Therefore we do not recommend to use MIFARE Classic in security relevant applications anymore.

MIFARE Classic EV1 provides excellent ESD robustness for easy handling of the IC during the inlay- and card manufacturing and best in class RF performance for optimized transactions and allowing for more flexible antenna designs.
