The MIFARE SAM AV3 (secure access module) now in its third generation is designed for flexible performance, secures access keys and protect assets. It offers built-in support
for MIFARE ICs and NXP’s “DNA” range of products from the NTAG®, ICODE®, and UCODE® families - optimized for use with product types in these families that offer Transaction
Message Authentication Codes (TMACs). It is an ideal security add-on for embedded systems consumer devices reader and POS terminals, toll gates, and door locks.
Enhancing cryptographic performance in devices
The MIFARE SAM AV3 raises the bar on flexibility by supporting programmable logic, too, so you can integrate a proprietary algorithm for key diversification or implement a full
business flow that executes with just one call. The optional programmable logic feature also allows you to develop your own code while reusing the intrinsic cryptographic
functions. To simplify the development of customized logic, NXP® partners offer code development and other services tailored to the MIFARE SAM AV3.
The MIFARE SAM AV3 offers an easy way to add security to all of today’s increasingly important applications, and accelerates the creation of faster, leaner designs.
The efficient X-mode configuration allows for direct communication with selected NXP RF-frontend ICs to achieve higher application performance at a reduced implementation
effort. Taken as a whole, the flexibility, and simplicity features of the MIFARE SAM AV3 make it an ideal choice for securing embedded identification systems.
