LEGIC Identsystems Ltd has announced the launch its new generation of contactless reader chips for personal identification.
According to LEGIC, the new SM-4200 reader chips are equipped with the company’s advant smart card technology, making them suitable for single and multi-applications in access control, time and attendance and e-payment.
The SM-4200 is also the smallest chip ever developed by LEGIC, measuring only 8×8 mm, and runs on low power consumption, allowing it to be integrated easily into battery-operated applications such as offline door locks, says LEGIC.
The new chip supports the ISO 14443 A+B, ISO 15693 industry standards, the LEGIC RF standard and now NXP Semiconductors’ MIFARE technology, which LEGIC has recently announced will be supported by all its reader platforms.
By integrating MIFARE technology in its reader components, LEGIC says it will be able to provide its readers for a variety of new applications including public transportation, access management, event ticketing and customer loyalty.
