Mifare smart cards are simply a memory card.
The increasing demand for single card solutions has contributed to the rapid growth of Mifare contactless smart card technology. By the addition of just one extra contactless application to the card, (i.e. access control, time & attendance, membership or ticketing systems) it provides the user with a cost effective alternative to conventional proximity cards.
The miPASS contactless smart card does not need a direct contact to a reader. It’s a card which has no contact plates for the data to be exchanged with the reader (and complies with ISO 14443). Instead, it communicates using wireless technology with the reader. The phase signal and the energy to power the card are transmitted via a high frequency signal from the reader to the card. Data is then transmitted bi-directionally by this signal providing a fast and very efficient data exchange. Quick transaction time, simple usage and robustness are the outstanding features of this card.
Subject to the style of reader used, the card can transmit data over a distance of up to 10cm. This is achieved by presenting the card in front of the reader without the time consuming procedure of inserting it into a slot. This allows very quick processing of the transaction. This data transfer has the advantage of functioning through all nonmetallic materials. The robust contactless data transfer makes the card resistant to humidity, dirt & dust, with data retention of up to 10 years.
