Descriptive summary

Smart card controllers and security ICs

For applications demanding the highest security and reliability (e.g. smart cards, secure dongles, SAM modules...) we provide different platforms according to application needs ranging from our well established WE-contact controller family to our SmartMX and SmartXA devices.

Contactless memory ICs

Our MIFARE contactless smart card ICs provide the most advanced combination of security and convenience for contactless interfacing in accordance with the ISO 14443A interface standard. Our ICODE and UCODE families of RFID ICs are specifically designed for high-volume smart label applications. In addition our HITAG family of ICs, with an operating range of more than one meter, provides a robust solution for tracking and logistics applications.


Completing our smart card and tag and label platforms, we offer a comprehensive range of contact and contactless reader ICs for all identification applications.

Car Access & Immobilization

NXP Semiconductors leads the car access and immobilization markets with a broad range of products for automotive system manufacturers and car key manufacturers.

Security risk considerations

NXP has produced two application notes on end-to-end system security risk considerations for implementing contactless cards as well as a FAQ on the security of MIFARE Classic. Find out more about MIFARE here.

Seriz Board for RFID/NFC Applications

Silica Seriz enables easy, fast and secure development of RFID and NFC applications. To migrate existing RFID products to a more secure solution the benefits of NFC can be added to the existing reader at very low additional cost.

Key NXP components:

  • PN512
  • TDA8029
  • LPC1766 (Cortex M3)

Seriz II Board

Built upon the success of Seriz, ArchiTech and NXP present the Seriz II Board, a rapid and secure RFID and NFC development.

The development of RFID and NFC applications is being challenged due to the many different kinds of RFID tags on the market. Furthermore, some cards are becoming very complex as there is a growing need for security.

ArchiTech Seriz and ArchiTech Seriz II help customers migrate their existing RFID product to a more secure solution, add the benefits of NFC to their reader with almost no additional costs, thus making their development cycles faster and easier.

Key NXP components:

  • CLRC663
  • LPC4350 (Cortex M4)
