SINGAPORE, Jun 25, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) — AdvanIDe, the leading independent provider of semiconductors for the smart card and RFID industry, today introduced the NXP MIFARE™ Classic 1K Clone Checker Kit, which includes a MIFARE Pegoda II Reader with a secure access module (SAM), additional test cards and software. The kit enables customers to identify genuine MIFARE™ ICs that are used in tags or contactless cards. This gives transponder manufacturers, transport operators and end-users the confidence that legal ICs are being used.

MIFARE is a proven, reliable and robust technology for contactless smart cards. High-volume IC manufacturing with leading process technologies and assembly experience has led to the issuance of more than 5 billion cards and the installation of 50 million readers and terminals in applications around the world. Only MIFARE products have undergone stringent quality procedures, including certification by authorized MIFARE certification institutes, ensuring interoperability with all major infrastructures around the world. Through strict compliance with the ISO/IEC 14443 standard, MIFARE ensures interoperability between contactless infrastructure and credentials.

“MIFARE Classic 1K originality and trust are important because so many projects rely on these devices,” said Kay Plaumann, line manager RFID with AdvanIDe. “This kit helps to indicate immediately whether a system’s MIFARE Classic 1K chip is genuine. The unauthorized, unknown use of clones has recently become widespread, and we want to help our customers and partners ensure that only original MIFARE technology is being used.”
