NXP Semiconductors developed the MIFARE Ultralight Nano MF0UN(H)00 for use in a contactless smart ticket, smart card or token in combination with a Proximity Coupling Device (PCD). The MF0UN(H)00 is designed to work in an ISO/IEC 14443 Type A compliant environment. The target applications include single trip or limited use tickets in public transportation networks, loyalty cards or day passes for events. The MF0UN(H)00 serves as a replacement for conventional ticketing solutions such as paper tickets, magnetic stripe tickets or coins. It is also a perfect ticketing counterpart to contactless card families such as MIFARE DESFire or MIFARE Plus.
The MIFARE Ultralight Nano is succeeding the MIFARE Ultralight ticketing IC and is fully functional backwards compatible. Its enhanced feature and command set enable more efficient implementations and offer more flexibility in system designs.
The mechanical and electrical specifications of MIFARE Ultralight Nano are tailored to meet the requirements of inlay and paper ticket manufacturers.
