The Elektor Electronics RFID Card

Contactless transaction card using the Philips MIFARE Ultralight IC

The Elektor Electronics RFID Card
The free 13.56MHz RFID smart card given away with this issue is designed around the Mifare Ultralight IC (MF0 IC 01), the smallest member of the Mifare product family from Philips Semiconductors. Key applications of this IC are public transport passes, loyalty cards and entry tickets for special events. Its advantages over older technologies (such as magnetic stripe cards) are greater user-friendliness, increased security, shorter transaction time, lower maintenance costs and fewer terminal equipment errors.
