Mifare Rf-Id Contactless Plastic Cards from CS Cards
What is Mifare?
Mifare technology is a 13.56 MHz contactless technology that is owned by Philips Electronics. They do not make cards or readers, but they make and sell the card and reader chips on the open market. Many Card and reader manufacturers such as HID use this technology to create unique products for use by end-users.
Mifare is often considered to be a “smart card” technology. This is based on the ability to read and write to the card. In reality, Mifare is simply a memory card (as opposed to a processor card).
The Mifare contactless smart card and Mifare card reader/writer were originally developed to handle payment transactions for public transportation systems. With a short read-range, Mifare is uniquely suited to perform increment/decrement functions. Although contact smart cards could also do the job, contactless readers are faster and easier to use, and there is virtually no maintenance on the readers, or wear and tear on the cards.
CS Cards offer a wide range of Mifare RFID plastic cards. Mifare is a technology that has been selected for most contactless smart card projects and therefore, became the most successful brand within the automatic fare collection industry. In addition, the Mifare product portfolio includes specific products that are the perfect solution for other applications such as loyalty, road tolling, access management and gaming.
