MIFARE smart cards are a brand of ISO 14443 Type A 13.56 MHz contactless smart card encoding technology, using read/write functionality to securely share information.

MIFARE Cards & Technology

MIFARE technology is available in several styles, each with different abilities. This allows you to select the card style that meets your card program’s needs. MIFARE cards, fobs, and tags can store more data than a prox card, with options for 1k Byte (8k bits) or 4k Bytes (32k bits) on many of their cards.

  • MIFARE Classic, which includes MIFARE Classic EV1, is the original MIFARE format
  • MIFARE DESFire, which includes MIFARE DESFire EV1 and EV2, is a type of data encryption designed for fast, secure, and flexible data transmission
  • MIFARE Ultralight, for low-cost high-volume applications including public transit
  • MIFARE Plus, which helps upgrade current MIFARE Classic systems to newer technology

MIFARE smart cards can also use 125 kHz prox card technology, allowing your cards to be multifunctional.
