This new module for 13.56 MHz MIFARE applications supports not only the standard MIFARE Classic tags, but also MIFARE DESFire EV1, Ultralight, PLUS S/X and NFC. This enlarges greatly the application domains for the COMPACT modules as DESFire is mainly used in the public transportation ticketing systems. The higher security standard makes this technology fit for contactless payment.
During development, special attention was given to its compact dimensions and technical flexibility so that the COMPACT-DES module can easily be fitted in various application. It offers amongst others a 3.3 to 5Vdc voltage, a wide range of supported transponder technologies and for custom-specific solutions even 4 I/O ports are available.
