Smart Cards

InteractCard supply smartcards throughout Australia and New Zealand. A smart card is typically a card with an embedded chip (memory or microprocessor) that store or process data. There are two general categories of smart cards: Contact & Contactless. A Contact card must come into direct contact with the reader whereas the Contactless card just needs to be in the proximity of the card reader. These cards are used in key applications such as security, banking, transportation, healthcare and entertainment. Clamshell smartcards can be personalised with a self-adheasive plastic card. InteractCard supply MiFare, Desfire, Ntag, Clamshell & other ISO/IEC 7810 ID-1 formats.



NXP Semiconductors-owned trademark of a series of chips widely used in contactless smart cards and proximity cards. According to the producers, billions of smart card chips and many millions of reader modules have been sold.[1] The technology is owned by NXP Semiconductors (spin off from Philips Electronics in 2006) with headquarters in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and main business sites in Nijmegen, Netherlands, and Hamburg, Germany.

The MIFARE name covers proprietary technologies based upon various levels of the ISO/IEC 14443 Type A 13.56 MHz contactless smart card standard.

MiFare Classic

The MIFARE Classic card is fundamentally just a memory storage device, where the memory is divided into segments and blocks with simple security mechanisms for access control. They are ASIC-based and have limited computational power. Thanks to their reliability and low cost, those cards are widely used for electronic wallet, access control, corporate ID cards, transportation or stadium ticketing.
