We are commercializing in an extensive ambit of Mifare Classics. They are the series of chips that are extensively used in contact less proximity cards and smart cards. These cards are backed by the most advanced technology and premium materials. For catering the different needs of various customers, the Mifare Classic cards are available in various types. They are rested on several parameters by our experts before delivering them to our customers. Clients can access these cards at a pocket friendly price.



  • MIFARE is the NXP Semiconductors-owned trademark of accessories of  chips widely used in contact less smart cards and proximity cards
  • MIFARE products are embodied in contact less and contact  smart cards, smart paper tickets,  wearables and phones

  • The MIFARE brand name derived from the term MIKRON FARE Collection and  created by the company MIKRON covers four families of contactless cards

MIFARE Classic 
  • Employs a proprietary protocol compliant to parts 1 3 of ISO IEC14443  Type A, with an NXP proprietary security protocol for authentication and ciphering. Subtype: MIFARE Classic EV1 other subtypes are no longer in use
  • Drop-in replacement for MIFARE Classic with certified security level AES-128 based  and is fully backwards compatible with MIFARE Classic Subtypes MIFARE Plus S, MIFARE Plus X and MIFARE Plus SE
MIFARE Ultralight
  • Low cost ICs that are useful for high volume applications such as public transport  loyalty cards and event ticketing. Subtypes:MIFARE Ultralight C, MIFARE Ultralight EV1 and MIFARE Ultralight Nano.
  • Contact less ICs that comply to parts 3 and 4 of ISO/IEC 14443-4 Type A with a mask-ROM operating system from NXP. The DES inthe name refers to the use of a DES, two-key 3DES, three-key 3DESand AES encryption; while Fire is an acronym for Fast innovative reliable and enhanced. Subtypes: MIFARE DES Fire EV1,MIFARE DES Fire EV2.
  • There is also the MIFARE SAM AV2 contact smart card. This can be used to handle the encryption in communicating with the contact less cards. The SAM (Secure Access Module) provides the secure storage of cryptographic keys and cryptographic functions.

MIFAREDES Fire family

The MIFARE DES Fire MF3ICD40 was introduced in 2002 and is based on a core similar to Smart MX ,with more hardware and software security features than MIFARE Classic. It comes pre-programmed with the general purpose MIFAREDES Fire operating system which offers a simple directory structure and files. They are sold in four variants: One with Triple-DES only and 4 kB of storage, and three with AES 2, 4, or 8 KB; see MIFAREDES Fire EV1 The AES variants have additional security features e.g.  CMAC. MIFARE DES Fire uses a protocol compliant with ISO/IEC 14443-4.[9] The contact less IC is based on an 8051processor with 3DES/AES cryptographic accelerator, making very fast transactions possible.

The maximal read/write distance between card and reader is 10centimetres 3.9 in but actual distance depends on the field power generated by the reader and its antenna size.

In 2010, NXP announced the discontinuation of the MIFARE DES Fire MF3ICD40 after it had introduced its successor MIFARE DESFire EV1 MF3ICD41 in late2008. In October 2011 researchers of Ruhr University Bochum  announced that they had broken the security of MIFAREDES Fire (MF3ICD40), which was acknowledged by NXP see MIFAREDES Fire attacks.


New evolution of MIFARE DES Fire contact less IC, broadly backwards compatible. Available with 2 kB,4 kB, and 8 kB non-volatile memory. Other features include

  • Support for random ID.

  • Support for 128-bit AES

  • Hardware and operating system are Common Criteria certified at level EAL 4+

MIFARE DES  Fire EV1 was publicly announced in November2006.[citation needed]

Key applications:

  • Advanced public transportation

  • Access management

  • Loyalty

  • Micro payment


The latest evolution of the MIFAREDES Fire contact less IC family, broadly backwards compatible.[13] New features include:

  • MI smart App enabling to offer or sell memory space for additional applications of 3rd parties without the need to share secret keys

  • Transaction MAC to authenticate transactions by 3rd parties

  • Virtual Card Architecture for privacy protection

  • Proximity check against relay attacks

MIFARE DES Fire EV2 was publicly announced in March 2016 at the IT-TRANS event in Karlsruhe, Germany.

 MIFARE Ultralight C

MIFARE  Ultralight C is a  cost effective solution using  the open 3DES cryptographic  standard for chip authentication and data access

The widely adopted 3DES standard enables easy integration into  existing infrastructures and the integrated authentication command set provides an effective cloning protection that helps to  prevent counterfeit of tags

Tickets vouchers or tags based on NXP MIFARE  Ultralight C can act as single  trip mass transit tickets event tickets or as low cost loyalty cards and are also used for device authentication

MIFARE Ultralight C operates according to the ISO/IEC 14443 A  standard allowing an operating distance of up to 10 cm with true anti-collision support It also offers extended user memory compared to MIFARE Ultralight EV1 and a range of additional security features previously unavailable on low cost contactless ICs Existing MIFARE Ultralight C solutions benefit from the same authentication commands as being used for MIFARE DESFire EV1 The MIFARE Ultralight C is furthermore compliant to the  NFC Tag type 2
