DESFire EV1 Configuration and Encoding with CCU and CEE


Rapid Memory & MIFARE Contactless Card Development

Smart Toolz software is designed to increase system development speed by including everything needed to quickly and easily design your contact or contactless card program. Included in the kit are five contact synchronous memory smart cards including I2C types and five different contactless smart cards including MIFARE DESfire EV1, MIFARE Plus and MIFARE Classic, (ISO 14443A). Smart Toolz also comes with a Dual Interface (contact and contactless) PC/SC card reader in order to test your development progress.

User-Friendly Card Configuration Utility

Smart Toolz Card Configuration Utility provides an intuitive user interface for creating your card project file. Data fields are virtually represented so that the user knows where his or her data is going to live and how much EEPROM is being used and is available. Smart Toolz gives a card issuer the flexibility to configure the card however best fits his or her needs, whether the card be used for loyalty and rewards applications, physical access control, or transportation. The powerful Winplex® API Middleware facilitates this process by simplifying complicated commands and permitting greater card reader functionality than the PC/SC middleware can provide.

Card Encoding Engine™ Integration for Automated, Dynamic Data Encoding and Card Issuance

MIFARE Desfire EV1 projects created in Card Configuration Utility can be easily imported to Card Encoding Engine (Sold Separately), which provides full card personalization and dynamic encoding of variable data for large runs. More cards are planned to be supported in the future. See how it works here: 

Integrated CardAppz® Demo Software: Easy-To-Configure Card Database

Included with Smart Toolz is CardLogix’ CardAppz™, an integrated software program that can be used for demonstrating the streamlined creation and customization of a I2C contact memory card with a range of options to suit your application needs. CardAppz takes you step-by-step through the creation of a card database right through to a finished card design. With CardAppz software, computer-literate, non-programmers can apply the versatility and security of smart cards to automate every transaction, from identification to stored value to security access. CardAppz features easy and intuitive point-and-click commands that give you control over many features and security options. Once designed, you can complete your system configuration with many different reader options.
