HID Global has announced it will integrate NXP’s MIFARE technology into its physical and logical access readers and software. According to HID, the integration will enable HID’s partners to support multiple technologies in their access management installations.
HID’s Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) will be used to provide a secure delivery infrastructure for updating HID readers to support NXP’s latest card technologies, including MIFARE DESFire EV1 and MIFARE Plus, as well as reader life cycle management. This will also allow readers and terminals to support HID’s next generation Secure Identity Object on MIFARE platforms.
According to HID, NXP’s MIFARE contactless technology is the world’s most widely used open-architecture contactless platform for end-to-end solutions, from smart cards to mobile devices.
“NXP is already our supplier of ICs and microcontrollers for our readers, as well as for our inlays and credentials. With the emergence of NFC applications and the growing need for mobility and security, our customers face new challenges that require new, future-proof solutions,” said Tam Hulusi, senior vice president at HID Global. “We are pleased to partner with NXP to help fuel this market and bring access management systems to the next level.”
