MIFARE is a contactless memory card technology that operates at the 13,56 MHz operating frequency. Initially developed by Philips Electronics for use in the transit and cashless vending markets, MIFARE offers read/write capability in a contactless form factor.
MIFARE provides a unique 32-bit serial number for each card. A short read-range maintains the integrity of the read/write process required by transit and cashless vending applications.
What can it be used for?
Today, MIFARE technology is primarily used for e-purse applications such as vending, fare collection, transit, airline ticketing, prepaid metering, phone cards and toll roads. Data applications include ID cards, university cards, loyalty programs and medical information cards. MIFARE cards can manage up to 16 separate applications on just one card!
