Flexible RFID and proximity solutions

COMPACT-DES Mifare module

COMPACT-DES is a small-sized MIFARE RFID reader module, supporting Mifare Classic as well as Mifare DESFire. Also Legic Advant tags can be read by this module.

Mifare DESFire is commonly used in ticketing systems for public transportation. The higher security level allows also the use in contactless payment applications.

COMPACT-DES is designed with special attention for smallest dimensions and highest technical integration flexibility (e.g.: 3,3 Vdc to 5,0 Vdc). 4 additional I/O ports are available for customer-specific applications.
The standard version of the COMPACT-DES module is equipped with a UART (TTL) interface, but also USB interfaces in either keypad emulation mode or virtual COM-port mode, I²C, Clock/Data, Wiegand D0/D1, or real RS232 interfaces are optionally available.

This extremely small-sized 13.56 MHz RFID module can thus easily be integrated in different applications such as time & attendance terminals, POS systems, vending machines, handheld and desktop readers, …
